Dairy ingredients for food products – fat reduction and creamy taste.

Dairy foods are also often looked at to help bridge the fibre gap. The appeal of fibres has grown among health-conscious consumers worldwide. One of the silent drivers of this trend is digestive well-being. Nearly 70% of West-European consumers say this is important to them. Give way to refrigerated or frozen calorie-reduced dairy delight, an established part of consumers’ daily diet that is unrestricted by standard meal occasions.

Dip into the full potential of the dairy segment and make each spoonful as delightful as the next. BENEO’s functional fibres, carbohydrates and rice ingredients are an excellent addition to processed nacho cheese dips, sugar- and fat-reduced yoghurt, shakes or scoops of indulgent ice cream with increased fibre content.
