Child-friendlier sweets with Palatinose™. Up to now, the only toothfriendly options have been sugar replacers (polyols); sugar needed to be replaced cup-by-cup. With Palatinose™, a fully digestible alternative for children’s confectionery is now available: a sugar that is kind to teeth! Thanks to its nature, PalatinoseTM releases its energy more slowly than traditional sugar, providing children (and adults) with a more balanced energy for longer.
“Healthy flora with BENEO Functional Fibres. Babies are born with a ‘sterile’ gut; the colonization of their flora with microbes is playing an important role in many aspects of babies’ health. The healthy gastrointestinal microbiota of breastfed babies (gold standard) is composed to a large extent of Bifidobacteria. This is because breast milk naturally contains a high amount of prebiotic non-digestible carbohydrates. These non-digestible carbohydrates make the stool of babies very soft to liquid in its structure. Adding our prebiotic non-digestible carbohydrates to infant formulae, allows to come closer to the microbiota composition of breastfed babies (by increasing Bifidobacteria). Also stool structure becomes softer compared to non-prebiotic formula and closer to breast fed children.
