Other Interesting Points - Bengers was first produced in the later part of the 19th Century (Circa 1880/90) in the Strangeways area of Manchester, England. Bengers is a powder supplement drink containing amylase and trypsin, two of the enzymes that the body uses to break down and digest food. Bengers was added to hot milk, the trypsin would then begin to break down the rich milk proteins (often difficult to digest), whilst the amylase would react with the wheaten base, making extra energy instantly available. Bengers was ideal for patients in convalescence or those suffering stress, nervous tension, stomach upsets and sleepnesses as they would benefit from the gentle nourishment of predigested Bengers, even when they fell 'off' other food. The original Bengers company was taken over in the 1950s by Fisons Pharmaceuticals.
