Boosting digestive health


2019-05-31

Rapid urbanization has affected our health and digestion, says BENEO. When you look at all the glories we’ve received along with our rapid urbanization, you’d be forgiven for overlooking the effects it’s had on our health. Asia’s rapid urbanization, somewhat counter-intuitively, also brings with it considerable health issues. Easy-to-consume and highly processed foods have now become mainstays in the diets of many Asians who live fast-paced and busy lifestyles.  Processed food often contain high levels of sugar, fat, and salt, but lack in vitamins and fibre – an important element to move digestion along. A lack of fibre in the diet can lead to irregular bowel movements and constipation.

Manufacturers can boost the fibre content of their manufactured food by incorporating Beneo’s natural and soluble prebiotics to produce healthier products. This will help consumers increase fibre intake without the need for major dietary adjustments, and at the same time, deliver a host of nutritional benefits. As such, consumers today can get tasty, easy-to-consume foods that can simultaneously bring proven health benefits as well, the company says.
