Beneo, Morris Plains, N.J., announced that it will focus on healthier snacking at this year’s IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo, taking place June 25-28. The company will present natural, clean-label solutions that respond to consumer trends, including sugar replacement, healthy weight, digestive health and improved energy, the company says.
Beneo Inc., Morris Plains, N.J., announced a new study that shows that the company’s prebiotic chicory root fiber Orafti Inulin, induces selective changes in the gut’s microbiota composition that can be directly linked to improved regularity and well-being for the first time.
The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) new Nutrition Facts label, in conjunction with continued consumer demand for transparency, less sugar and clean-label products, have resulted in an increased demand for natural, non-caloric, high-intensity sweeteners (HIS), like stevia, monk fruit and erythritol.
Although many consumers might be looking to live healthier lifestyles, they’re still looking for products that satisfy their sweet tooth. Looking for the best of both worlds, consumers are demanding great-tasting sweetened products that do not contain sugar.
