Creator's Brief: Protein Power
Arla Foods Ingredients unveiled Lacprodan DI-7017, a new generation of pure whey protein concentrate that is stable in ultra-high temperature (UHT) formulations at neutral and acidic pH levels, at Healthy Ingredients Europe and Natural Ingredients 2012, Nov. 13-15 in Germany. Whey protein is notoriously hard to incorporate into UHT processes, which are widely used to manufacture clinical nutrition beverages with a long shelf life, the company says. The powdered Lacprodan DI-7017 will allow companies to produce 100 percent whey-based ready-to-drink beverages that are more effective, easier to formulate and better-tasting, it says.
