B.EN - The premium nutrition drink

The times when there were only a few refreshing drinks and lemonades are something of the past for already quite some time. A new generation of drinks has come along in recent years: So-called ‚energy drinks‘. Most products in this range are characterized by a very artificial taste and a much too high content of added sugar, usually in the form of high-glycaemic saccharose and often times also fructose and glucose syrup which unnecessarily strain our pancreas. Also very common is the addition of acidity regulators and preservatives, colourants and flavourings, synthetic caffeine plus the artificially produced amino acid taurine which in combination with plenty of caffeine is said to have a stimulating and performance increasing effect in particular.

We had the vision of a drink without all these ingredients artificial and useless for the body. We wanted it to be formulated so that it can be enjoyed by nutrition-conscious and active people as well as top athletes without concerns. Fully according to the principle: ‚What you do not eat or drink with a good conscience yourself, do not give to others.“ So it took some time. B.EN was developed over months which was also the beginning of Berry.En as a company back in 2009.

Initially bottled in a classy, black gloss bottle with silver imprint, B.EN immediately attracted attention and also outclassed off-the-shelf products with its specific formulation: Its characteristic and natural taste is ensured by a special juice mix from berries, fruits and plant extracts. It is the foundation of the drink and also gives it the naturally red colour. The juice mix has a high amount of valuable phytonutrients (secondary plant extracts or antioxidants). Because we did not want to sweeten it with sugar types that strain the body, we dediced to choose the carbohydrate Palatinose® which comes close to regular sugar in terms of sweetness, but has a low-glycaemic effect. Meaning that it protects us from intense blood sugar fluctuations and gives us long-lasting energy because the body resorbs this sugar slower and more evenly; this is also true for the naturally occuring fruit sugars in the juice mix.

The caffeine derives from natural sources such as the Guarana plant which is native to the Amazon forests and also from tea. Also, it is the tea ectracts which give B.EN a pleasant, slightly dry flavour. Artificial stimulants such as taurine and added, high-glycaemic sugar or fructose-glucose syrup as well as artificial colours and flavourings you will not find in B.EN. Not without reason, B.EN has advanced to become a Berry.En bestseller because comparable products can hardly be found in regular stores.

Palatinose™

The appropriate energy supply is an important factor for the physical as well as mental performance - especially athletes are all too well aware of that. In order to achieve optimal performance, muscles need sufficient amounts of fuel in the form of carbohydrates. Whereas a few years ago, it was assumed that simply the quantity of carbohydrates is crucial, we know today that it is also important what kinds of carbohydrates are consumed. We now distinguish between 'fast' and quickly utilized carbohydrates and the more advantageous 'slow' and long-term energy-supplying carbohydrates.

Regarding this, the functional carbohydrate Palatinose™ (Isomaltulose) has special properties: As the only fully consumable and low-glycemic carbohydrate (glycemic index 32) which supplies the body with a direct source of glucose, Palatinose™ (Isomaltulose) provides the body with a consistent, even and long-lasting supply of 'carbohydrate energy'. Due to a very strong molecular bond between the fructose and glucose molecule, resorption happens step by step, ‚slower‘ and over a longer period of time. Large fluctuations in blood sugar levels as can be observed after the consumption of high-glycemic ‚fast’ carbohydrates, can thus be avoided. Like this, energy is used more efficiently.

Carbohydrates are not the only sources of energy. Depending on the kind and intensity of the activity, our muscles draw their fuel not only from carbohydrates but also to a large extent from fats, in different proportions. In contrast to the limited carbohydrate storages which, depending on the kind of physiological stress, can only store enough energy for one to two hours of cardio training, fat reserves, even in highly trained athletes, are almost unlimited and supply the energy for high-endurance activities. For optimum endurance, athletes thus try to spare their carbohydrate reserves and instead use fat as a substrate as much as they can without risking negative impacts on their performance. The ability to effectively burn fat and draw a high percentage of the overall energy from it is thus of high importance for an athlete's endurance. Scientific studies in sports medicine have shown that Palatinose™ (Isomaltulose) can make a positive contribution to  increase fat burning rates.
