BENEO-Institute – knowledge to connect nutrition & health.
Consumers’ health consciousness and expectations towards today’s food are continuously rising. Health professionals need to be in a position to give guidance to both consumers and food manufacturers. The BENEO-Institute offers access on the physiology and the latest nutrition science as well as on legislative aspects related to BENEO ingredients. With this expertise BENEO supports health professionals and food and drink manufacturers in innovations that are substantiated with nutritional science.
The BENEO-Institute’s work includes:
• Nutritional research and peer-reviewed articles
• Position papers on nutritional and regulatory topics
• International research conferences and workshops
• Consultancy with respect to regulations and nutrition communication
• Support and advice in product composition
• Participation in joint/collaborative research projects
We focus on the global megatrends in nutrition science and food:
• Functional ingredients to age well
• Gut microbiota benefits with prebiotics
• Digestive health and its positive effects on overall health
• Weight management
• Blood sugar management and low glycaemic concepts
• Calcium absorption improvement and bone density
• Dental health
• Healthy nutrition during pregnancy, infancy and childhood
The latest BENEO-Institute news.
A recently published study conducted by Perfood GmbH, Germany, in collaboration with the University of Lübeck, Germany, demonstrates that BENEO ingredients support a personalised nutrition approach.
On Oct. 26, 2019 the Research Dietetic Practice Group hosted a continuing education symposium sponsored by BENEO-Institute. A featured speech by Dr. Raylene Reimer focusing on prebiotics and metabolic health was published in the latest issue of The Digest.
Many existing food and nutrition trends have been accelerated by the pandemic crisis – and one of them is the big challenge of blood sugar management.
Learn how to use prebiotic chicory root fibers in your daily practice or company to address dysbiosis and improve digestive health, bone health, blood glucose response, manage weight and inner defense.
New study reveals that prebiotic chicory root fibre can maintain microbiota balance in children – even following antibiotic treatment
Prebiotics: Harnessing the power of the gut microbiome.
Dr. Hannah Holscher, University of Illinois, spoke at Today’s Dietitian Symposium 2022 on prebiotics, the gut microbiome and how they can influence protective functions, vital to human health. Prebiotics have a positive effect on the intestinal microbiome to improve digestive health, support weight management, glycaemic control and bone health. This guide to proven prebiotics also identifies ways of increasing prebiotic fibre consumption in the diet to support health.
Healthy Ageing. More than eating well and staying active.
Improving dietary quality and promoting physical activity are vital to improve the health span of older adults, but what does research show about the use of BENEO’s functional ingredients, such as Isomaltulose and chicory root fibres to help lower disease risk and improve health outcomes? Time to talk about it – the United Nations “Health Ageing Decade” has already begun. Listen in to Chris Rosenbloom as she takes us through taking small steps toward healthier aging.
