Arla Foods Ingredients has developed a ‘unique’ new ingredient that, it said, overcomes the taste and mouthfeel issues that challenge manufacturers of clear protein waters.
As demand for high-protein products continues to grow, Arla Ingredients noted demand for RTD nutritional beverages is supporting consumer interest in clear protein waters. However, problems with taste and dry mouthfeel have stifled product launches.
The ingredient manufacturer claims to have developed a solution: Lacprodan ISO.Water. The new ingredient is a 100% whey protein isolate designed for clear beverages. According to Arla Foods Ingredients, it delivers ‘great mouthfeel without the taste of protein’. This, the company believes, will open up new opportunities in the functional beverage space.
“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,” Troels Laursen, director of health & performance nutrition, commented.
Arla Foods Ingredients will showcase the new product alongside its portfolio of ingredients at on Stand 6C120.
