Is there any difference between when you would use trenger, and when you use behøver?

Not when they translate to 'need'.

I got this as a speaking exercise (to be translated at the same time). I said "Vi bruker mat." but the program wrote "Vi trenger mat."
Would "Vi bruker mat." be acceptable, too? (BTW, I'm German, and we have a similar word (brauchen) which would be totally acceptable in this case.)
