5-star Health Rating
The Health Star Rating is a front-of-pack labeling system developed by the Australian Government that assigns products a rating from ½ a star to 5 stars. The more stars, the healthier the food choice. BeneMe has the highest 5-star rating, so you know that you are making a healthy choice.
Gluten is a mixture of proteins found in wheat and related grains (including barley, rye, and oats). Gluten causes health problems for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities. BeneMe is gluten-free.
Low GI Stevia
Unlike many nutritional drinks which use large amounts of sugar, we use natural stevia plant extract. Stevia provides sweetness to BeneMe without adding calories or impacting on blood sugar. Beneme has no added sugar or fructose.
Beneme Chocolate flavour contains only 1.4g of fat per 60g serve. Beneme Vanilla flavour has only 1.1g fat per serving.
Beneme contains a proprietary blend of 5 specific plant dervied enzymes to assist digestion – α-amylase (starch), protease (protein), lipase (fat), cellulase (cellulose), and lactase (lactose). These enzymes assist easy digestion including those who are lactose intolerant or dairy sensitive.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms in which the genetic material has been artificially manipulated through genetic engineering. BeneMe does not contain any genetically modified ingredients.
For Healthy Joints, Skin & Muscle
Collagen is an essential component of our entire body, making up 30% of our total body protein. Collagen is crucial for mobile joints, stable bones, healthy muscles, strong ligaments and tendons, smooth skin, glossy hair and healthy fingernails. As we age, our body naturally produces less collagen.
Supplementing with collagen has been clinically shown to:
Relieve and repair joint pain(1)
Improve muscle mass (2)
Aid with wound healing and recovery from surgery(3)
We use a form of collagen called collagen hydrolysate (also called collagen peptides), a micro active form that has been optimized for cellular absorption and effectiveness. It has no flavour or odour and dissolves in hot or cold liquid, ensuring the collagen in BeneMe is an ideal way to get the benefits of this vital protein.

Beneme Has More Protein per Serve
The Australian Department of Health (6) provides the following Recommended Dietary Intakes (RDI) for protein intake for each Life Stage and gender. As we get older or go through pregnancy and lactation our protein requirements increase significantly. With a high 22.9 g of protein per serve, Beneme helps you meet your daily protein requirement.
No Added Sugar
Beneme Has No Added Sugar
Unlike other nutritional drinks on the market, Beneme has no added sugar or fructose. Many other brands are extremely sweet, with fructose or sugar being found among the first four ingredients. High intake of these ingredients has been linked to obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (4) They also add empty calories with zero nutritional value. Beneme uses stevia glycosides, a natural sweetener from the stevia plant. Stevia does not affect blood sugar levels, has no added calories and has an estimated glycemic load of zero. (5)
