Dairy processors and soft drinks manufacturers can exploit the huge potential offered by high-protein RTD beverages with Nutrilac® WheyHi, an innovative new ingredient solution from Arla Foods Ingredients.
Previously, technical obstacles have made it difficult for manufacturers to add whey protein to long shelf life drinks made using UHT processes without the risk of fouling. But now, this risk is significantly reduced. This means that with WheyHi, companies can create long-life sports nutrition drinks, tea and coffee beverages, and smoothies in which 40% of the protein comes from whey – and yet still deliver a delicious flavour.
WheyHi is suitable for high temperature applications that use both direct and indirect UHT treatment, without compromising on processing capacity. It offers 80% more whey content than standard milk protein concentrates, boosting the nutritional value of the finished product. It also delivers a better taste profile compared with vegetable proteins and casein.
WheyHi will be showcased on stand G2 at this year’s Health Ingredients Europe exhibition
