Today’s consumers are increasingly aware of the importance of good nutrition. But instead of changing their diets, they tend to favor products that make up for the nutrients their diets lack. Frutafit® inulin and Frutalose® oligofructose provide the nutritional properties you need to develop the better-for-you products and functional foods that consumers are looking for.
These ingredients come from a natural source, the chicory root. They can contribute significantly to the development and positioning of healthy food products. Sensus provides excellent value-chain management and has extensive, expert knowledge of products and applications for the food and beverage industry.
Frutafit® inulin and Frutalose® oligofructose are prebiotic, soluble dietary fibers with texturizing properties and a neutral to sweet taste, without any ‘off’ taste or aftertaste. Frutafit® is a range of powdered inulin products with high to low solubility. Frutalose® is the brand name for oligofructose, a partially hydrolyzed inulin with extremely high solubility, which is available in a powder and syrup.
Both Frutafit® and Frutalose® can improve the taste of high-intensity sweeteners and have a scientifically proven caloric value of 1.5 kcal/gram1, making them perfect ingredients for calorie-reduced products. Frutafit® and Frutalose® can also improve the mouthfeel of products. Frutafit® especially has unique texture-modifying characteristics. Its gelling properties and neutral, slightly sweet taste make it an effective fat or sugar substitute.
With these innovative ingredients, Sensus helps you to develop added-value products to meet growing consumer demand for healthy food and beverages.
