Global chemical distribution group Brenntag has been appointed exclusive South Africa distributor of Sensus, the Dutch natural-based ingredients. Sensus' product line includes Frutafit inulin and Frutalose oligofructose.
Frutafit and Frutalose are natural soluble dietary fibres sourced from chicory roots. They can be used as sugar and fat replacer with a positive impact on taste and texture across a variety of food and beverage applications. These ingredients have significant, scientifically proven health benefits.
"Through this partnership, we provide customers with market know-how and tailor-made support on product, application, nutritional aspects, legislation and claims. Together with Brenntag we will inspire our customers with our chicory root fibre products," said Michiel Pronk, Sales Manager at Sensus.
For Pronk, Brenntag Food & Nutrition's foothold in the South African food market and expertise make it an excellent opportunity to create unique healthy food recipes.
Graham Hiam, Business Manager at Brenntag Food & Nutrition South Africa, commented: “We are always looking for innovative ingredients to create tailor-made applications as well as new product developments in collaboration with our customers. With a continued focus on healthier, tastier and higher quality food products, we are looking forward to working with the Sensus’ product portfolio.”
