Sensus. Making inulin work for you


Frutafit® inulin & Frutalose® oligofructose: prebiotic dietary fibres

Sensus is a fast-growing company that produces the innovative food ingredients Frutafit® inulin and Frutalose® oligofructose. These ingredients come from a natural source, the chicory root. They contribute significantly to the development and positioning of healthy food products.

Consumers are increasingly aware that their daily diet does not include all required nutrients. However, they tend to be unwilling to change their eating habits and instead look for products that offer these additional benefits.

Inulin is an excellent soluble dietary fiber that promotes digestive health by enriching the fiber content of food. It also has a prebiotic effect, stimulating the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon. And because inulin has a low caloric value and promotes satiety, it can make a major contribution to weight management. It even boosts calcium absorption, resulting in improved bone health. Lastly, inulin can be used to replace sugar and fat while improving taste and mouthfeel.

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 can contribute significantly to the development and positioning of healthy food products.

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 low caloric value, 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 products.
