Ingredients for beverages – sustainable energy or sugar reduction.

The demand for sugar-reduced and sugar-free claims is an overarching trend in the beverage industry: these are claims that are prominently present on many recent product launches. The interpretation of functionality, however, often differs. Nowadays’ key drivers can be as much inner well-being, energy efficiency as a natural, plant-based origin.

From isotonic sports drinks to fizzy water and soft drinks, BENEO’s ingredients offer new ways into nutritionally optimised and highly stable beverages. Quench the market’s thirst for drinks that are more gentle on blood sugar levels or create beverages containing more slowly released, fully digestible carbohydrate energy, fibres and/or sugar-reduced sweetness.
