New research: U.S. consumers prefer a healthier sugar from natural sources

BENEO-graph-ideal-sweetener-USA-2016
A recent study commissioned by BENEO shows that U.S. consumers prefer nutritional foods that not only sustain energy throughout the day, but also help with weight management and disease prevention. The results also indicate that U.S. consumers are becoming aware that not all sugars are alike. BENEO’s next generation sugar Palatinose™ has a low effect on blood sugar levels and provides full energy in a balanced way – eliminating the undesired "boost and crash effect" generally associated with other sugars.

BENEO and Raffinerie Tirlemontoise invest 5 million in laboratories

On 4 July BENEO and Raffinerie Tirlemontoise celebrated the official opening of modernised laboratories in Tienen, Belgium. This 5 million Euro’s investment, demonstrate how important R&D is to both partners. A new laboratory has also been developed for meat applications that need to be handled under specific temperature conditions. The analytical and microbiological research done in the laboratories are focused on specific applications, such as dairy, breads and cereals, meat and beverages. Thanks to the modernised laboratories BENEO can respond with substantiated knowledge to the latest trends in a constantly evolving food industry.

New authorised 13.5 health claim for BENEO’s chicory root fibres!

We are pleased to announce that the Standing Committee on Plant, Animals, Food and Feed agreed with the EU Commisssion to authorise a second 13.5 health claim for our chicory root fibres – just three months after receiving the first 13.5 health claim for BENEO's chicory inulin. The recent health claim confirms the sound science of inulin and oligofructose contributing to a better blood glucose management - a key element in the promotion of long-term health from early on! Leading scientists agree that a low glycaemic diet reduces the risk of type II diabetes and helps to control blood glucose levels. BENEO’s inulin and oligofructose, derived from chicory root, allow manufacturers to develop a greater variety of low glycaemic food choices and support the increasing consumers' demand for low glycaemic products. The EU Commission will now continue with the publication of the health claim in the EU Official Journal which is expected within 4 to 6 weeks and consequently the claim can be used in the market soon.

New ingredient: Remypure, a natural rice starch

Naturalness and transparency are key for today’s consumers, who want to know what their food is made of. Clean label has moved past being a trend, it is the new rule. But most clean label starches do not perform as good as commonly used starches. BENEO now introduces Remypure, a new native clean label rice starch. Based on innovative technology, Remypure achieves functional properties and performance levels comparable to chemically modified food starches, without using any chemicals.
