Studies confirm better digestive health with BENEO’s chicory root fibres for all ages
Two recently published scientific studies show that BENEO’s prebiotic chicory root fibres support digestive health by improving bowel regularity and softening stools in adults and children.
The first study shows that chicory root inulin improves bowel function in adults and contributes to improved digestive health.
The second study focuses on children and demonstrates that prebiotic chicory root fibres, inulin and oligofructose, support digestive health by improving stool consistency, while being very well tolerated.
New website: Expert views on chicory root fibres
The role of dietary fibre in nutrition and health is the topic on the new expert platform www.dietaryfiber.org.
The website gives scientifically sound information on the unique characteristics of prebiotic chicory root fibres – from improving the balance of the intestinal flora by stimulating beneficial bifidobacteria growth to its impact on weight management and much more.

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

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 blood glucose 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. This 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.
