Beyond digestive health with prebiotic fibres


A good digestion is vital for a healthy life. It helps our body to absorb all the nutrients it needs to run smoothly. A healthy digestive system in turn requires sufficient dietary fibre intake.

Our Orafti® Inulin and Orafti® Oligofructose are extracted from chicory root and can bring your products to a fiber-enriched status. They nourish your colon micro flora – add a prebiotic plus.


Prebiotic dietary fibres and improved digestive health

To maintain a well-balanced micro flora, the beneficial bacteria in our large intestine have to outnumber the pathogenic bacteria. Therefore, it is essential to promote the growth of ‘good’ bacteria.

Faba bean for protein enrichment


Chose our faba bean ingredient as a more sustainable solution for protein enrichment. Pulses help reduce greenhouse gas emissions at farm level. For example, faba beans provide nitrogen by themselves and subsequent plants so that nitrogen fertilisation is not necessary.

Besides plant-based protein enrichment, BeneoPro FB comes with a variety of technical advantages. For example, it can be used for egg replacement in muffins and allows for smooth homogenous dairy-free beverages.
