Mannheim, January 2016 – As of January 1, 2016 customers working with Orafti® inulin can use a new claim on digestive health. We are very pleased to announce that the EU Commission authorised a 13.5 health claim with exclusive use for BENEO’s chicory root fibre inulin allowing to claim “promotes digestive health”.
This authorisation follows a positive opinion by EFSA and is based on new and exclusive scientific research proving that inulin improves the effect on bowel function by increasing stool frequency.
As of January 2016 new opportunities arise for product innovations using BENEO’s Orafti® inulin in a wide range of food and beverage applications, to ultimately benefit consumers with a healthy and balanced digestive system. View the official EU Commission publication.
