Transparency and natural formulations continue to fuel consumers’ trust as is reflected in the rise of clean and more natural product launches, that have attained a world average annual growth rate of 15 % (2012-2017). Overall consumers agree that the fewer ingredients, the better. They keep a close eye out for products with a no additives/ no preservatives claim and have grown particularly wary of chemically sounding foods and formulations they are unfamiliar with. As rice is widely considered to be a healthy, natural food for both adults and children alike, BENEO’s range of rice protein can help to satisfy the rising demand for plant protein. It is a gluten-free, non-GMO source of hypoallergenic protein with an excellent amino acid profile and good digestibility: an ideal solution for bars, baked goods, cereals and nutritional mixes.
At the BENEO Technology Center, BENEO develops high quality recipes for natural protein-enriched and high-protein food. Where certain protein types tend to trigger solidification during storage, rice protein does not. It ensures a pleasantly soft mouthfeel and extended shelf life in energy bars and considerably better crispness and bowl life in cereals.
