Healthy indulgence with improved nutritional profiles from BENEO
Develop tasty food and drink solutions that leverage the power of less sugar, fat and calories.
At FI Europe 2015 BENEO will demonstrate how its ingredients can help manufacturers develop tasty food and drink solutions that leverage the power of less sugar, fat and calories.
Manufacturers looking for ways to replace sugar entirely or partly in their formulations can choose isomalt, the only sugar replacer that is derived from pure sugar beet. Another approach includes chicory root fibres inulin and oligofructose. With a mild sweet taste, they help achieve excellent taste with fewer calories, contributing to healthier nutrient compositions and lower calorie counts.
For fat-reduced products with a creamy indulgent sensation, chicory root fibres and rice starches offer an ideal solution. Inulin provides a similar mouthfeel to fat and can replace fat entirely, thus helping to reduce the calorie count of food products. It also improves the body of low fat products, delivering roundness and creaminess as well as a better balan-ced flavour. Waxy rice starches too are an ideal replacement for fat in a variety of products. They are unique in their neutral taste and small starch granule size allowing formulators to mimic the perception of fat globules in the mouth without altering the original taste of the product.
Following growing consumer demand, innovative manufacturers are looking for solutions to reduce the glycaemic response of their products. The next generation sugar, Palatinose, is a fully yet slowly digestible carbohydrate. Being low glycaemic, low insulinaemic and contributing to a better fat oxidation in energy metabolism, PalatinoseTM has the potential of providing benefits for glucose control and weight management.
