Orafti® Inulin from natural sources.

Inulin-type fructans, such as Orafti® Inulin, occur naturally in a great number of plants and vegetables, though the chicory root is a particularly wealthy source.

As it is extracted through hot water processing, it is of 100 % vegetable origin. After extraction, purification takes place in order to meet even the highest quality requirements, including those for infant nutrition.

Fibre in, fat out.

Orafti® Inulin is an ideal fat replacer and is easily incorporated in moist or semi-moist food products.
Our fructans help create a creamy taste and similar mouthfeel to fat. This enables developers to replace part of the fat content of their products by Orafti® Inulin.
Perfectly suited for low-fat products, in which it can:
– improve body and mouthfeel, for an excellent flavour profile,
– reduce the caloric value of products without compromising taste or texture.
Orafti® Inulin also improves the stability of dairy mousses and foams.

Easy Implementation.

Orafti® Inulin is a soluble fibre which allows for easy processing without adapting or changing the production process. Our range offers a unique solution to formulations requiring high dosages of fibre when water availability is limited.

The BENEO Inulin range.

Orafti® Inulin can be categorised into three main product groups: standard Inulin, long chain Inulin and Oligofructose-enriched Inulin.
These ingredient types offer different levels of solubility, sweetness and fibre content. Our experts are keen on helping you identify the solution for your application.
