Products / Markets

Chicory inulin is a functional food ingredient that can replace sugar and fat while improving taste and mouthfeel. It also promotes digestive health by enriching the fiber content of food. Moreover, it has a prebiotic effect, stimulating the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon. Chicory inulin is recognized as the only plant-based prebiotic by The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).

Frutafit® inulin and Frutalose® oligofructose are plant-based, prebiotic, soluble dietary fibers with texturizing properties and a great taste that provide added health benefits. These ingredients are currently used in many applications, including dairy, bakery, cereals and cereal bars, infant nutrition, beverages, confectionery, ice cream, savory and healthcare nutrition. 

The full range of Sensus chicory inulin and oligofructose products qualifies as natural according to the ISO 19657:2017 guideline. Chicory root fiber is today the only dietary fiber that is verified as natural according to ISO.

Sugar reduction from a natural source

18 Dec 2017 --- Sensus has a strong tradition in sugar reduction efforts, and it presented solutions and concepts in this field at FiE 2017. “What we always have done is try to reduce sugar and have healthier food by extracting inulin and oligofructose, which is sweet,” says Matthew de Roode. The company now finds that the market, consumers, producers and governments are more aware of sugar reduction, so many others seem to be taking part in the story. However, people tend to forget that sugar is not only sweetness and it has many more properties within food, De Roode notes.

Technical Solution Combining Oligofructose and Stevia

12 Dec 2013 --- Sensus has developed a taste model in cooperation with Suiker Unie and CFTC. The computer model can identify the ideal combination of stevia, sugar and inulin in yoghurt. The sugar can be (partly) replaced with stevia without influencing the product's sweetness and without stevia's typical aftertaste. “The typical liquorice aftertaste of stevia has been a significant barrier to the successful introduction of dairy products,” says Matthew de Roode, Innovation Manager at Sensus. “We already knew that inulin could mask the aftertaste of stevia. But apart from the taste, sweetness and other product properties are also important if sugar is replaced with stevia. Each product application needs its own specific approach. We decided on an integral approach to optimise all the properties at the same time.”
