Microparticulated Whey

Ideal source of concentrated protein that undergoes a unique process that denatures the protein to give it less of a tendency to aggregate and gel upon heating.

Benefits


  • Uniform particle size provides a rich, creamy mouthfeel and texture, making microparticulated whey protein (MWP) a great fat replacement option for low-fat products such as yogurt, processed cheese, dressings, and sauces.
  • Has superior emulsifying capacity by preventing the coalescence and flocculation of the fat droplets, which will enhance the storage stability of dressings and sauces.
  • The heat stability of MWP at high protein concentrations allows for lower viscosity and reduced sulfur notes traditionally seen with whey RTD beverages, creating an improved overall drinking experience.

Applications


  • Yogurt
  • Dressings
  • Sauces
  • Ready-to-drink beverages
  • Cheese
  • Ice cream

Native Whey Protein Isolate

Microfiltered directly from milk and virtually free of fat and lactose, our high-quality Native WPI is an undenatured, unmodified protein that has an amino acid profile with higher leucine levels. Contains no less than 90 percent protein on a dry basis.

Benefits


  • It has a greater leucine content than traditional cheese whey, therefore athletes can achieve greater muscle protein synthesis. 
  • Due to the higher levels of branched chain amino acids, athletes will achieve the onset of muscle protein synthesis while consuming a smaller dose of protein. 
  • It is the least processed of any whey product, which means it provides the cleanest flavor profile possible. 

Applications


  • Sports Nutrition 
  • Bars 
  • Protein fortified food sand mixes 
  • Protein fortified waters, juices, and teas

Infant Grade Native Whey Protein Isolate

Microfiltered directly from milk and virtually free of fat and lactose, our high-quality Native WPI is an undenatured, unmodified protein that is free of casein glycomacropeptide (cGMP). Contains no less than 90 percent protein on a dry basis.

Benefits


  • The superior quality of native whey protein provides a higher level of tryptophan and a reduced amount of threonine so that babies are not overfed protein. 
  • The absence of glycomacropeptide (GMP) in native whey means there is more tryptophan which helps babies sleep well. 
  • Because the protein profile includes beta casein, it provides infant formula with the protein and amino acid profile closer to human milk. 
  • Uncompromising microbiological limits using sensitive micro methods, leading to low levels of contaminants and heavy metals, which gives infant formula producers peace of mind. 

Applications


  • Infant formula powder 
  • Infant formula RTD 
  • Follow on formula powder & RTD 
  • Growing up milk
