Unveiling the Digestive Delight: BENEO’s Prebiotic Claims for Native Chicory Root Inulin

Digestive health is still a top health concern for people within North America. Consumers see a common link between having a healthy digestive system and their overall health. With more products on the shelves that promote digestive health and sustainability, consumers are paying more attention to nutritional supplements and ingredients that are digestive health aids. In the ever-evolving landscape of health and nutrition, the spotlight often falls on ingredients that promise to support our well-being from within. Among these, prebiotics have emerged as a fascinating category, showing that the health of the gut microbiome is a top concern for consumers today. With this rise in interest for incorporating more prebiotics in diets consumers are looking for ingredients that positively impact their gut microbiome. One such prebiotic ingredient is native chicory root fibre which stands tall as a star player. BENEO, a leading innovator in the field, has been championing the prebiotic benefits of chicory root fibre for years. This article will dive deep into the effects and benefits of BENEO’s chicory root fibre line of ingredients.

Chicory Root Fibre: Nature’s Digestive Elixir

BENEO’s prebiotic chicory root inulin product line, known as Orafti® GR, Orafti® ST, Orafti® ST-Gel and Orafti® HSI, boasts a natural, non-GMO, and clean label profile. Extracted gently from the chicory plant these fibres stand apart from synthetic alternatives. With their versatile technical properties, chicory root fibres find application in a diverse array of food and beverage products, including baby food, in compliance with national regulations. As a proven plant-based prebiotic, inulin plays a crucial role in nurturing a healthy gut microbiota, selectively fostering the growth of beneficial microorganisms within the digestive system.

Nurturing Gut Health: The Prebiotic Promise

At the heart of BENEO’s prebiotic claims lies the symbiotic relationship between chicory root inulin and the gut microbiota. Under the specific scientific requirements set forth regarding making a prebiotic claim by Health Canada, BENEO confirms the following substantiated evidence that allows this claim: “chicory inulin contributes to normal bowel function by increasing stool frequency”. With this, BENEO can market these ingredients with a prebiotic claim. It should also be said that a prebiotic claim cannot be made in conjunction with a fibre claim as to not assume all fibres have prebiotic benefits. Furthermore, scientific evidence suggests that prebiotics like native chicory root inulin serve as fuel for probiotics, the beneficial bacteria residing in the gut. By selectively stimulating the growth and activity of these probiotics, chicory root fiber contributes to a balanced gut microbiome, which is linked to numerous health benefits.

Beyond Digestion: The Multifaceted Merits

The influence of chicory root fibre extends beyond digestion, permeating various facets of health and well-being. Studies indicate that a flourishing gut microbiome nurtured by prebiotics may confer advantages beyond digestive health, including enhanced immune function, improved nutrient absorption, and even mood regulation. BENEO’s chicory root fibre line, with its prebiotic prowess, thus emerges as a versatile ally in the pursuit of holistic health.
