NEW: Proprietary 13.5 Health Claim for BENEO's fibre inulin

17 December 2015

As of January 1, 2016 customers working with Orafti® inulin can use a new claim on digestive health

We are very pleased to announce that the EU Commission authorised a 13.5 health claim with proprietary use for BENEO’s chicory root fibre inulin allowing to claim “promotes digestive health”.


This authorisation follows a positive opinion by EFSA and is based on new and proprietary scientific research proving that inulin improves the effect on bowel function by increasing stool frequency.


As of January 2016 new opportunities arise for product innovations using BENEO’s Orafti® inulin in a wide range of food and beverage applications, to ultimately benefit consumers with a healthy and balanced digestive system.
