Improved digestive health with Functional Fibres.
The importance of dietary fibre intake is gaining traction. Today, many consumers already actively ask for convenient food and drinks including dietary fibres.
Our functional fibres Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose improve a balanced intestinal flora by stimulating growth of beneficial bifidobacteria– an important element of good digestive health.
They have been proven to support weight management and help the body absorb more calcium, good for stronger bones. In addition, Orafti® functional fibres also support a low-glycaemic diet.
The European Food Safety Authority positively evaluated a health claim on the reduction of post-prandial glycaemic response for Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose. Not only in Europe, but also in the US, BENEO’s Orafti® Inulin and Oligofructose are recognised by official bodies. BENEO’s Inulin & Oligofructose from chicory root are now officially on the list of approved dietary fibres published by FDA. Chicory root fibres are the only proven plant-based prebiotics. The corresponding scientific database for BENEO`s prebiotic fibres is the strongest in the food industry.
Easy, technical solutions.
While Orafti® Inulin stands out thanks to its texturising properties, Orafti® Oligofructose is applied when high solubility levels and a natural sweetness are required. Some varieties of Orafti® Inulin, such as Orafti® Synergy1, combine the best of both.
