BENEO – Connecting nutrition and health

BENEO offers a range of functional ingredients derived from the natural sources chicory root, sugar beet, rice and wheat. The company supports manufacturers to produce healthy and more balanced products with less or no sugar or fat, fibre-enriched or gluten- as well as dairy-free and more. Also blood sugar management, weight management, digestive, bone and dental health are concepts where BENEO’s ingredients can play a decisive role. Also, they improve the taste and texture of food and beverages.

BENEO specialises in supplying manufacturers with functional ingredients of non-animal origin. The company’s product portfolio is primarily used in baby food, bakery, cereals, beverages, confectionery, dairy, meat and vegetables, as well as soups and sauces.

Through a unique chain of expertise, including the BENEO-Institute, the BENEO-Technology Center and the team for Market Intelligence and Consumer Insights, the company supports customers throughout the entire product development process.

Products and services

Figures show that 1 out of 3 adolescents (<15 years) are obese in the region. For effective weight management, every calorie counts. BENEO’s functional fibres, carbohydrates and rice ingredients help reducing calories by limiting fat and sugar but maintain great taste and texture in food and beverage products.

Chicory root fibres help to reduce sugar content and calorie count while fibre content is increased. They have a mild sweet taste, are soluble and inulin creates fat-like cream under shearing force for excellent texture.

Functional carbohydrates help to replace commonly known sugars. Isomalt replaces sugar entirely and thus allows for calorie-reduced solutions. Palatinose™ has been proven to improve fat oxidation in energy metabolism thus provides benefits for body composition and weight management.

Specialty rice ingredients: Due to its small granule size rice starch perfectly mimics the perception of fat globules in the mouth, improvement of texture and structure in fat reduced products.
