BENEO connects nutrition and health with functional ingredients

The BENEO range of functional ingredients can be used across a variety of applications and help enrich products with additional health and technical benefits.

BENEO supplies functional ingredients derived from the chicory root, sugar beet, rice and wheat in support of food and drinks with additional health and technical benefits. Our functional fibres, carbohydrates, protein and rice ingredients improve taste and texture in a broad range of applications: dairy, confectionery, bakery, cereals, baby food, vegetables, meat, soups, sauces and beverages. In addition, they help reduce fat, sugar, artificial ingredients, improve digestive, bone and dental health, energy and weight management and/or mental & physical performance and enrich them in fibre or proteins. 

Isomalt: The sugar-free nutritive sweetener 

The functional carbohydrate Isomalt is a naturally-derived bulk sugar replacer. With only half the calories of sucrose, it is the number one sugar replacer for hard candies worldwide. Thanks to its physiological properties, this sugar-free, nutritive ingredient perfectly matches the consumer trends of dental health, weight management and keeping the body’s metabolism healthy throughout life. It replaces sugar on a 1:1 ratio, with its low-hygroscopicity, it can increase shelf life and bring out flavours as well as colours in sugar-free hard-boiled candy.    

Isomalt is the only sugar-free nutritive sweetener derived exclusively from sucrose. It is produced by an enzymatic step followed by hydrogenation. The resulting principal components of Isomalt are 6-0-α-D-glucopyranosyl-D-sorbitol and 1-0-α-D-glucopyranosylD-mannitol dehydrate. This molecular structure explains why Isomalt provides a sweetening profile almost equal to sucrose – but only half the calories! This makes Isomalt work perfectly as a healthy sugar replacer for calorie-reduced and tooth-friendly products.
