Products / Markets

Chicory inulin is a functional food ingredient that can replace sugar and fat while improving taste and mouthfeel. It also promotes digestive health by enriching the fiber content of food. Moreover, it has a prebiotic effect, stimulating the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon. Chicory inulin is recognized as the only plant-based prebiotic by The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).

Frutafit® inulin and Frutalose® oligofructose are plant-based, prebiotic, soluble dietary fibers with texturizing properties and a great taste that provide added health benefits. These ingredients are currently used in many applications, including dairy, bakery, cereals and cereal bars, infant nutrition, beverages, confectionery, ice cream, savory and healthcare nutrition. 

The full range of Sensus chicory inulin and oligofructose products qualifies as natural according to the ISO 19657:2017 guideline. Chicory root fiber is today the only dietary fiber that is verified as natural according to ISO.
