Ingredient leader Beneo extends its fiber portfolio

Adds barley beta-glucans ingredient- Orafti® β-Fit

Beneo, a global functional ingredients manufacturer, launched barley beta-glucans that offer unique health benefits including positive impacts on heart health and blood sugar management. BENEO’s new product Orafti® β-Fit, a natural and clean label wholegrain barley flour with 20% beta-glucans, is a significant extension of the company’s functional fiber product range. Orafti® β-Fit is on-trend with consumer focus on sustainability with plant-based and wholegrain ingredients being preferences when making their food choices.

Functional ingredients such as barley beta-glucans, with proven health benefits and approved health claims offer food manufacturers an easy way to create appealing products with convincing front-of-pack communication and a convenient way for consumers to choose nutritional products that positively impact heart health.

“This wholegrain and clean label barley flour strengthens BENEO’s expertise as a leading provider of functional fibers,” said Jon Peters, BENEO’s Sales Director, Americas. “Orafti® β-Fit is perfectly aligned with the company’s goal to connect nutrition and health. It delivers convincing benefits with FDA-approved health claims. This is BENEO’s first ingredient that is fully produced in the U.S.”

BENEO’s Orafti® β-Fit also allows for fiber enrichment, thus helping to bridge the fiber gap. It can be used in a wide range of applications including baked goods (such as cakes, muffins, bread, and biscuits), pasta, and cereals, as well as meal replacements. It can also positively impact texture by increasing viscosity, e.g., in dairy (alternatives).
