Epi Ingredients has entered the protein ingredient segment by releasing its first protein concentrate for manufacturers, called Epiprot 60 UL.
Epiprot 60 UL is derived from milk protein concentrate, and can be incorporated into a wide range of applications such as cheese, yogurt, quark, beverages and more.
Containing 60% native protein, the ingredient is produced from fresh milk using an ultra-low heat process which preserves the 80/20 casein/native whey protein ratio to create optimum nutritional properties for manufacturers.
Epi Ingredients claims that the ingredient offers strong gelling, emulsifying and water retention capabilities, and also gives products an enhanced creamy taste and a rich mouthfeel.
The company will release an unspecified concept product which utilises the ingredient in the near future, and will release further details on the new concept in September.
Mathieu Lucot, marketing manager at Epi Ingredients said: “As a major food producer, we have a responsibility to contribute to people’s quality of life through our products.
“This is why we are fully committed to assist our customers by supplying sustainable, high-quality ingredients designed to tackle their current challenges as well as to meet consumers ever-evolving requirements.
“At Epi Ingredients, we take our mission to drive innovation very seriously and the best way for us to feature what our ingredients can do is to develop finish product concepts with them.”
