Consumers Understand The Connection Between Mood And Food

Consumers today are not only looking for mental health, they are looking essentially for happiness. We see the interest rising in food and drinks that can lift mood, sharpen minds and/or help relax. This creates plenty of opportunities for functional and better-for-you food and drink

While 55% of consumers globally associate prebiotics with the support of their digestive health, more than two thirds (69%) associate digestive health with mental wellbeing benefits. Besides that, research about the gut-mind & brain axis is becoming more tangible and big players are tapping into this area. 

It is now, more than ever, a good time to promote such health benefits, and BENEO’s functional ingredients can help with that. Check out what our functional fibres, carbohydrates, proteins or specialty rice ingredients can do for your product.
