Essential ingredients for a healthy lifestyle.

The importance of dietary fibre intake is gaining traction. Today, many consumers already actively ask for convenient food and drinks including dietary fibres.

Our functional fibres Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose improve a balanced intestinal flora by stimulating growth of beneficial bifidobacteria– an important element of good digestive health.

They have been proven to support weight management and help the body absorb more calcium, good for stronger bones. In addition, Orafti® functional fibres also support a low-glycaemic diet. The European Food Safety Authority positively evaluated a health claim on the reduction of post-prandial glycaemic response for Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose.

As they are highly soluble, they can easily be used in all kinds of food and drinks and contribute to keeping people healthier from an early age onwards, throughout life.

Enhancing your products – easy technical solutions.

While Orafti® Inulin stands out thanks to its texturising properties, Orafti® Oligofructose is applied when high solubility levels and a natural sweetness are required. Some varieties of Orafti® Inulin, such as Orafti® Synergy1, combine the best of both.



Orafti®Inulin is a prebiotic fibre from the chicory root. It can improve consumers’ digestive health, weight management & calcium absorption and can be used for fat reduction.



Orafti®Oligofructose is a prebiotic fibre from the chicory root, often used as sugar reducer. It can improve consumers’ digestive health, blood glucose levels & weight management.
