Sustainable sports nutrition

Following the sustainability theme of the Vitafoods 2019 event, Glanbia Nutritionals will be highlighting innovation and application know-how across various plant-based solutions. Glanbia will introduce two plant-based sports nutrition prototypes at the show.

The first designed for pre-workout is FitNox Fueled RTM, featuring FitNox, a source of 100% plant-based nitric oxide (NO) that has been shown to deliver a 336% boost in NO with no added stimulants. Driven by patent pending plant-based matrix technology, FitNox contains three botanical ingredients designed for pre-workout – Moringa Oleifera Leaf extract, pomegranate extract and black ginger extract. High in vitamins C, B1, B3, B5 and B12 the FitNox Fueled RTM is designed to protect cells from oxidative stress and boost overall performance, Glanbia Nutritionals said.

Glanbia will also present Plant Protein Recovery RTM. Featuring HarvestPro PeaProtein, BevOat, BevFlax XtraSmooth flaxseed and Glanbia’s instantized Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) AminoBlast, the beverage delivers 20g of protein per serving, 1.1g of Omega-3, and is a source of fiber.

Indulgent healthy snacking 

As the healthy snacking market segment continues to grow, Glanbia will showcase its bar ingredients with a Whipped Chocolate Sensation Bar with 13.2g of protein per 50g serving. The bar features BarPro Milk Protein, which minimizes bar hardening and extends shelf life, and BevFlax XtraSmooth.

Alongside this will be a Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Bar featuring their new Crunchie Milk Protein Crisps, BarFlex partially hydrolysed whey protein isolate, BevWise whey protein and BarPro Milk Protein. With 20g of protein per 72g bar, the snack is low in sugar and has 11g of fiber.

Glanbia will also demonstrate its micronutrient premixes and supplements with the Blueberry Boost solution designed to increase energy and strengthen the immune system.

Oat powered beverages

The growing popularity of oat drinks is well documented, with a 40% increase in product launches for oat drinks in 2017-2018 and Forbes even pondering if 2019 is the year of the oat, it is the on-trend drink of the moment.

Glanbia’s new BevOat Low Viscosity (LV) provides manufacturers with a gluten-free, heat-stable oat flour designed specifically for RTD. The pourable oat flour will be showcased at Vitafoods.
