Protein waters without the taste of protein
A new product from Arla Foods Ingredients overcomes the taste and mouthfeel issues that have long challenged manufacturers of clear protein waters.
The high-protein trend, demand for convenient Ready-To-Drink nutritional beverages and the success of the sports nutrition category have all driven consumer interest in clear protein waters. However, some brands have been reluctant to launch new products due to challenges with taste and dry mouthfeel.
Lacprodan ISO.Water is a 100% whey protein isolate ingredient that overcomes these issues, says Arla Food Ingredients.
“Specially designed for clear beverages, it delivers great mouthfeel without the taste of protein, creating new opportunities for innovative products with a unique taste.”
Arla Foods Ingredients will showcase the new product at Food Ingredients Europe (3-5th December in Paris).
Troels Laursen, Director, Health & Performance Nutrition at Arla Foods Ingredients, notes: “Protein waters are a fantastic way to offer consumers healthy protein in a convenient, refreshing and low-calorie format. However the one box they haven’t previously ticked is great taste. Lacprodan ISO.Water overcomes that challenge, paving the way for products with a far wider range of flavours. It will set a new standard for clear protein waters that taste great as well as meeting nutritional needs.”
Lacprodan ISO.Water is ideal for use in ready-to-drink protein beverages. Made in Europe, it is sugar-free*, fat-free* and lactose-free**, as well as Halal, Kosher and non-GMO.
* According to EU Regulation (EC) 1924/2006
** Not regulated on EU level, but on national levels
