In recent years, the sports and lifestyle nutrition market has seen a significant shift in consumer demand toward products that are more “natural” and less “processed.” Though formats and ingredients remain important, the trend goes further than that: Consumers want to know where the product comes from, how it was sourced, the ways in which it was processed and more. This market also continues to grow with “mainstreaming,” bringing in an influx of people focused on bringing their lifestyle aspirations to life – and finding nutrition solutions to support them.
Throughout this evolution, one thing has remained constant: the demand for protein fortification. It’s an important area of focus in both the performance nutrition and mainstream/better-for-you categories. Consumer demand continues to grow for products ranging from protein fortified beverages to baked goods and snacks. At FrieslandCampina Ingredients, we continuously work to provide new dairy proteins and other ingredients that support the work of product developers and satisfy the needs of consumers.
A global leader in dairy-based ingredients and solutions, FrieslandCampina Ingredients supplies ingredients worldwide to the food and nutrition industries. We draw on a strong heritage of more than 140 years to extract the most nourishing components directly from fresh milk. With gentle processing, we create nutritious solutions that fuel active lifestyles. We’re also one of the world’s largest dairy cooperatives, with 18,906 member dairy farmers. This allows us to maintain complete control end-to-end of our dairy supply chain, ensuring the highest possible level of quality from grass to glass.
New Protein Ingredients
Three new offerings from FrieslandCampina Ingredients will help product developers meet consumer demand for natural, pure and convenient solutions. We designed these ingredients not only to help consumers achieve their nutrition and fitness goals, but to do so in products that offer the taste and convenience they want. Our product innovations are possible through the development of advanced technologies and processing techniques.
Nutri Whey™ Native is a rapid digestion protein. It is derived directly from our high-quality milk using minimal processing and ceramic microfiltration purification. Its controlled whey source provides a consistent quality and sensory profile, making it easy to incorporate into a variety of on-trend, tasty, label-friendly product applications.
Micelate™ Prestige is a natural long-lasting protein. A premium quality, native micellar casein isolate, it features a 95:5 casein:whey ratio achieved through microfiltration and cold-processing. Micelate Prestige offers a pleasant sensory experience and supports muscle mass and strength gain augmentation during sleep or when a longer recovery period is available.
Nutri Whey™ Isolate is a high-performance, whey protein isolate. Minimally processed with the latest microfiltration techniques, it performs in clear beverages and maintains clarity even at higher pH levels. It originates from high-quality Gouda cheese whey, producing a neutral-tasting, low-sodium isolate uniquely suited for high protein drinks or waters.
Everything we do at FrieslandCampina is driven by the Corporate Social Responsibility promise of nourishing by nature. As we develop new products and technologies, we are dedicated to evolving and improving the sustainability of our production chain. Our commitment is fueled by a number of initiatives, including sustainable farming, production and procurement of raw materials; reduced energy and water consumption by production facilities; and climate-neutral growth. Every effort in service of our mission is to provide better nutrition to the world and a good living for our farmers, now and for generations to come.
