Beneo offers naturally-sourced, functional ingredients derived from the chicory root, sugar beet, rice, and wheat, adding nutritional, technical and health benefits.

Our portfolio offers an opportunity to create all-natural, non-GMO or organic products that are non-cariogenic, gluten and lactose-free, fiber-enriched, fat and sugar reduced, easily digested, energy sustaining and calorie smart, as well as supportive of fat oxidation – all without compromising taste, texture or mouthfeel. Our ingredients can be used in applications like dairy, confectionery, bakery, cereals, soups & sauces, meat & vegetables, baby food, and beverages.

Formed by a merger of the companies Orafti, Palatinit and Remy in 2007, Beneo is a 100 percent subsidiary of the Südzucker Group and has over 100 years experience with functional ingredients.

Through a unique chain of expertise, including Beneo-Institute and Beneo-Technology Center, the company supports customers throughout the entire product development process: ranging from new product ideas and concept development based on consumer insights and market research to nutritional science by providing regulatory advice and facilitating the formulation of successful products.

Functional fibres: Orafti® inulin and oligofructose are prebiotic fibers extracted from the chicory root. These fibers do not only promote optimal intestinal functioning but also act as prebiotics that promotes the growth of ‘good’ bacteria (Inulin: EFSA claim on prebiotic wellbeing available). Both ingredients allow for an EFSA claim on blood sugar management as they support a lower rise in blood glucose levels and a lower insulin response.  

Functional carbohydrates: Palatinose or isomaltulose is a low-glycaemic and fully-digestible carbohydrate derived from the chicory root. What is special in comparison to other carbohydrates is that it releases its full carbohydrate energy (4kcal/g) more slowly and in a more balanced way (EFSA claim available). It improves fat oxidation during physical activity, leading to a sustained energy supply. Being acid stable, the food maintains its osmolality – an advantage, especially in sports beverages. In addition, it is a non-cariogenic ingredient.

Functional protein: Beneo’s Vital Wheat Gluten is a source of essential amino acids which the body cannot produce itself. Apart from their nutritious benefits, they improve the taste and texture of bakery goods, ready-to-eat meals, meat-based products, etc. Consequently, the sustainable sources of BeneoPro VWG have been allocated the IFS label, an acknowledged reference for high-quality ingredients.

Specialty rice ingredients: Beneo’s natural and organic rice ingredients include flours, starches, bran, syrups, proteins and concentrates. They help you respond to the growing demand for clean label, organic, gluten-free and hypoallergenic products. In addition, they improve mouthfeel, texture, crispness, crunchiness, shelf-life, and color of products.
