Volac has extended its whey protein isolate range with the introduction of Volactive Pro2O RTM.
The new ingredient is set to launch at Vitafoods Europe on 9 May in Geneva, Switzerland. Volactive Pro2O RTM allows manufacturers to develop shakes that are clear in solution, allowing for more fruit-based flavour options, such as citrus and melon.
Nadia El-Zanfaly, marketing manager at Volac, said: “In today’s market, performance and active consumers desire not only exciting new flavours but also optimised products with less foam, reduced powder residue and clear nutritional benefits”.
She continued: “The benefits of using Pro2O translate into an enhanced experience for the consumer while also maintaining the classic attributes associated with the clear RTM category, including lower turbidity and a neutral mouthfeel.”
Through using a “unique” agglomeration technique, according to Volac, Pro2O offers manufacturers an ingredient with high mixability, improved powder flow and up to five times faster foam dispersion.
The Volactive Pro2O range is low in fat and carbohydrate and is a source of concentrated natural proteins from milk of high biological value.
Elisa Glover, nutrition specialist at Volac, added: “Protein sources vary in nutritional value. The difference lies in the protein quality, determined by the amino acid profile and the protein source’s digestibility. Higher quality protein sources are easily digestible and provide ample amounts of essential amino acids, which the body cannot produce.”
Volac will be showcasing its Volactive Pro2O RTM at Vitafoods Europe from 9 to 11 May at Stand I39.
