Arla Foods Ingredients has unveiled a new generation of whey hydrolysates that are set to take these ‘gold standard’ proteins into the mainstream sports nutrition market for the first time.
Whey hydrolysates are premium proteins that have been finely chopped – or ‘pre-digested’ – so they are absorbed more quickly by the body than standard proteins.
This ensures they get to work faster on helping the muscles recover after exercise.
The new portfolio of mildly hydrolyzed whey protein products are focused on delivering the benefits of hydrolysates to more consumers.
It offers the performance and recovery benefits of hydrolysates in a cost-effective format that delivers greater application flexibility, convenience and an improved flavor profile.
Targeting casual and fitness lifestyle users of sports nutrition, the products in the new range include:
– Lacprodan HYDRO.clear – a mildly hydrolyzed, acidified whey protein specially developed for crystal-clear beverages;
– Lacprodan HYDRO.milk – a mildly hydrolyzed whey protein specifically designed for producing 100% whey-based milky, high protein drinks;
– Lacprodan HYDRO.gel – a mildly hydrolyzed whey protein tailored for use in protein gels; and
– Lacprodan HYDRO.power – a mildly hydrolyzed whey protein perfected for use in powder shake applications.
