Essential ingredients for a healthy lifestyle.

The importance of dietary fibre intake is increasingly recognised by the general public. Today, many consumers are already actively asking for convenient food and drinks that include dietary fibres.
Our functional fibres Inulin and Oligofructose improve the balance of the intestinal flora by stimulating beneficial bifidobacteria growth – an important element of good digestive health.
Our functional fibres have been proven to support weight management and help the body absorb more calcium for stronger bones.
Finally, BENEO functional fibres support a low glycaemic diet. The European Food Safety Authority has positively evaluated claims that our Orafti® Inulin and Orafti® Oligofructose  varieties can be used in foods for reducing the post-prandial glycaemic response.
Our soluble fibres can be easily used in all kinds of convenient consumption products.
This way, they contribute to keeping people healthy – from an early age and throughout their entire life.
