INUTEC®SP1 is owned by BENEO-Bio Based Chemicals (BENEO-BBC) based in Tienen, Belgium. BENEO-BBC's mission is to continuously develop new products and applications for specialty markets that require high performance.

The efficiency of INUTEC®SP1 stems from its ability to stabilise oil droplets and hydrophobic particles against coalescence and/or flocculation, through a process known as steric stabilisation.

INUTEC®SP1 is derived from Inulin. Inulin and its derivatives are successfully used as environmentally friendly and low toxicity alternatives for chemicals with poor eco-profiles.

What is Inulin?Inulin is a storage carbohydrate found in many plants. It is found naturally in many vegetables, fruits and cereals. After starch, inulin is the most abundant, non-structural polysaccharide found in nature.

BENEO-BBC produce their Inulin from the chicory root of the Witlof (Belgian Endive) plant Cichorium Intybus: a remarkable plant, (see picture). Witlof is an environmentally sustainable resource, produced for its delightful leaves, served cold in salads or served hot as a garnish. The root of the plant (chicory) is used as a coffee substitute and of course widely for sugar production (fructose).
