Glanbia Nutritionals, stand 08.0J31, Food Ingredients Europe, 28-30 November 2017, Frankfurt, Germany

Leading nutritional powerhouse, Glanbia Nutritionals, will be presenting its comprehensive portfolio and knowledge through a range of healthy snack solutions at FiE 2017, offering the best of functionality, texture and flavour.

A team of experts will be on-stand to highlight its extensive capabilities in providing customised formulations across beverage, bar and soup applications – to present how its ingredients can meet the latest consumer trends.

Functional beverages performing beautifully

Glanbia Nutritionals will be showcasing its beverage expertise in developing tailored solutions for ready-to-mix (RTM) applications, with a high-protein chai latte drink.

Targeting active women, the spicy hot beverage contains up to 10g of ProTherma hydrolysed whey protein, offering a number of nutritional and beauty benefits, including muscle maintenance, skin, nail and hair health, as well as antioxidative cell protection.

The team will be on-hand to explain how the ingredient can withstand brewing temperature, to deliver a healthy, hot beverage solution that appeals to females with urban and active lifestyles, and a taste for international flavours. Made with milk, the drink is an example of how ProTherma provides high solubility – even at a fast brew mode.

Convenient food for energy

The functional and nutritional benefits of ProTherma will also be demonstrated in a high-protein vegetarian soup. Highlighting its full breadth of experience, Glanbia Nutritionals experts will be on-stand to show forward-thinking manufacturers how ProTherma, together with Micelle XL, a milk protein that improves amino acid absorption, can contribute up to 8g of protein in the instant soup.

Plus, the addition of 3g of quinoa seeds and an energising vitamin premix provides extra appeal to health conscious, active consumers, who want an extra hit of protein on-the-go.

Setting the bar high

Glanbia Nutritionals will again put its high-quality bar solutions in the spotlight at FiE. The super seed granola bar combines quinoa, oat flakes and flaxseed for healthy, indulgent snacking. Aimed at Millennials and super seed fans, the bar contains OatPure™ gluten-free jumbo oat flakes, quinoa flakes and almonds providing a slow release of carbohydrates that can be enjoyed between meals for a natural health boost.

In addition, experts will be showing how health and indulgence can come together to form a great-tasting protein bar, with the melt-in-your-mouth texture of a confectionery product.

With sweetness from a caramel layer and chocolate topping and a soft chewiness, the bar prototype holds wide appeal for those with active lifestyles, looking to increase their protein intake without sacrificing taste.

Containing BarPro291, BarFlex and Solmiko MPC, and incorporating 20g of protein per 60g serving, this bar solution has the added benefit of an extended shelf-life for maximum consumer enjoyment.

“Continually innovating with nutritional ingredients has allowed us to stay at the forefront of the industry – and this year is no different. The trend for millennial snacks shows no sign of slowing down, and we are proud to present the very best of our solutions, offering health, functionality and great taste together,” comments Dagmar Ortlepp, Marketing Manager at Glanbia Nutritionals.

“FiE is a fantastic platform to showcase our expertise, as it gives us the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of end-to-end development with our array of prototypes, while advising visitors on the best formulations for their applications."
