As well as demonstrating how it can help manufacturers to develop nutritional products with the perfect balance of taste and enhanced performance benefits, Carbery will launch Optipep 90PRO
Carbery, a leading global supplier of whey protein, will be highlighting its extensive technical expertise in performance nutrition at SupplySide West this October.
As well as demonstrating how it can help manufacturers to develop nutritional products with the perfect balance of taste and enhanced performance benefits, Carbery will launch Optipep 90PRO, a new addition to its range of hydrolysed whey proteins.
The new ingredient utilises specialist enzyme technology, creating an improved taste profile for high protein, elite athlete nutrition products.
Carbery’s technical experts in nutrition and sports applications will be available in Las Vegas to discuss the advantages of using Carbery’s whey proteins in performance nutrition formulations. Displaying its premium range of hydrolysed whey proteins, Carbery will give SupplySide West visitors an exclusive preview of Optipep 90PRO, the latest addition to the Optipep portfolio.
Optipep 90PRO offers an improved taste profile as well as allowing for stronger labelling on products. Enabling manufacturers to make hydrolyzed whey protein claims, Optipep 90PRO can be positioned as the first ingredient on labels. It enhances the current range while continuing to deliver important performance benefits, including rapid absorption of essential amino acids and enhanced insulin response, leading to the promotion of muscle protein synthesis and restoration of muscle glycogen stores.
With the global sports nutrition market set to be worth $16.1 billion by 2019, the opportunities within this sector continue to grow. As sports nutrition moves into the mainstream, elite athletes require differentiated and carefully targeted products to address their specific needs, such as muscle strength, recovery and repair.
Owing to the abundance of products on offer claiming performance benefits, manufacturers are tasked with developing products to support the demanding training regimes of today’s dedicated athletes that are backed by scientific evidence. Whey continues to be the protein of choice for specialist athlete nutrition thanks to its efficacy, proven through extensive research into nutrition and sports performance.
Specialising in the supply of hydrolysed whey proteins that can be used in many performance nutrition applications such as drinks, bars and powders, Carbery also provides the sensory and technical knowledge to support manufacturers developing products which offer superior performance, proven efficacy and an appealing taste profile to target the elite athlete nutrition sector.
Carbery, who has been manufacturing proteins for 30 years, understands the application challenges presented in high protein formulations. Carbery will be represented on the booth of its taste division, Synergy Flavors, where Optipep experts will be available.
