Pioneer in the production of native proteins with Pronativ® Native Whey Protein, Lactalis Ingredients expands its range with a micellar casein isolate.
Rising demand for functional food and drink
The ageing population is driving demand for functional food and drink. The number of older persons worldwide should double by 2050. And as people live longer, their sick years increase. It means that life expectancy is growing but not the healthy one. That is why healthy ageing will be one of the main concerns in the coming years. Therefore people are looking for food that helps 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.
For many consumers, staying active is a priority. 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.
