Proven prebiotic fibres


BENEO’s chicory root fibres are prebiotics and come with an abundance of more than 25 years of scientific research to prove their prebiotic health claim. In fact, they are the only clinically proven plant-based prebiotics. Health is the core of our being so this extensive research was invaluable for caring for your health. Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose support a healthy gut microbiota and selectively promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms, such as Bifidobacteria, in the gut. On top of that are these fibres the perfect replacement for sugar recipes.

Sugar reduction


Isomalt is a naturally sourced sugar replacer made from pure beet sugar. It is 100% sugar-free and even helps to prevent tooth decay. Thanks to a two-stage production process of enzymatic sucrose treatment and hydrogenation, the resulting unique molecular structure gives our Isomalt a sweetening profile almost equal to sucrose – but with half the calories. Overall health benefits from the sugar-free solution without having to miss out on the taste profile. Furthermore, our health benefits from ‘Sugar out, fibre in!’ Reduce sugar levels to 30% with the help of Orafti® Inulin and Orafti® Oligofructose. These chicory root fibers are an excellent alternative to sugar because of their bulking and texturizing properties, and reduce the amount of calories.
