Lactalis Ingredients has expanded its range with a micellar casein isolate.

The company pointed to the ageing population driving demand for functional food and drink.

The number of older persons worldwide should double by 2050. Lactalis Ingredients said healthy ageing will be one of the main concerns in the coming years, and people are looking for food to help them live healthier for longer and prevent the occurrence of health problems.

Senior nutrition is moving from cure to prevention, and ageing-well products are targeting not only older consumers but also younger consumers who are proactive about healthy ageing.

Muscle and joint health claims are, therefore, important given the potential for muscle loss due to ageing. Protein’s benefits for muscle growth, recovery, and weight management make them ideal for food and drink fortification.

Lactalis Ingredients’ new Pronativ Native Micellar Casein has been created to meet the needs of consumers looking to support their active lifestyle, as well as provide nutritional solutions for healthy ageing and medical applications.

Pronativ Native Micellar Casein is a minimally-processed protein, extracted directly from milk using gentle processing with no added ingredients or chemicals. The company said the non-denaturing process allows it to obtain a native protein, close to the conformation of the protein present in the milk.

Lactalis Ingredients’ new micellar casein isolate contains 88% protein and is suitable for protein-enrichment of food and beverages. It also features low viscosity, low spores, a neutral taste, and is heat stable.
