BENEO opens North American application center in New Jersey
BENEO – best known for its chicory root fibers, low glycemic carbs, and rice ingredients – has opened an application center in Parsippany, New Jersey, to help it get closer to customers in the North American market looking to add fiber, reduce sugar and fat, and improve the taste and texture of their products.

The 3,000 square foot facility  - which includes analytical kit to measure microscopy, rheology, particle size, pH and freeze-thaw stability - features benchtop scale and pilot scale equipment enabling BENEO to cover a wide range of applications from bakery, dairy and dairy fermented applications, to soups, sauces, frozen convenience meals, cereal and slab-type nutrition bars and beverages.

BENEO​is unique in that we sell the ingredients we’ve discovered, developed and manufacture,”​ said Jon Peters, president of BENEO Inc. 

“This gives us a long history and strong heritage to bring out the very best of the ingredient when it comes to its functional benefits like health, taste and texture.  Now with these significant resources in the US, we can react more quickly to optimize and customize formulas for specific regional applications.”​ 

BENEO’s portfolio includes Palatinose, a low-GI carb from sugar beet; Isomalt, a non-cariogenic, low-GI carb from sugar beet used in candy, gum and chocolate; the prebiotic fibers Orafti inulin and oligofructose; and the clean label rice starch Remypure.
