Lactalis Ingredients has expanded its Pronativ native whey protein range with a new micellar casein isolate targeted at consumers who are proactive about healthy ageing.
Pronativ Native Micellar Casein contains 88% protein and is suitable for food and beverage enrichment, in particular as a nutritional solution for healthy ageing and medical applications.
With its new ingredient, Lactalis aims to meet the rising demand for functional products among an ageing population, as well as younger consumers looking to support an active lifestyle.
Lactalis says its new micellar casein is heat-stable and a good source of micellar calcium, while offering low viscosity, low spores and a neutral taste.
The minimally-processed protein is extracted directly from milk using gentle processing with no added ingredients or chemicals – a non-denaturing process which enables Lactalis to obtain a native protein, which it claims is very close to the conformation of the protein present in the milk.
Pronativ Native Micellar Casein is suitable for a range of food and drink applications, such as ready-to-drink beverages and cream desserts.
Lactalis emphasises that protein’s benefits for muscle growth, recovery and weight management make them ideal for food and drink fortification.
Last year, Lactalis Ingredients unveiled a new clean-label whey protein range made with sunflower lecithin.
