Arla Foods Ingredients has launched a new whey protein hydrolysate ingredient that is said to overcome taste challenges in products for patients with maldigestion or malabsorption.

Whey protein hydrolysates are commonly used in medical nutrition products for people with conditions that impair their ability to digest or absorb protein. However, they commonly have a bitter taste not found in intact whey protein.

To tackle this problem, Arla Foods Ingredients has developed WPH Lacprodan DI-3091, an extensively hydrolysed whey protein for medical nutritional supplements.

Kasper Faarkrog Høyer, sales development manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said, “WPH Lacprodan DI-3091 offers all the advantages of whey protein hydrolysate, including rapid absorption of nutrients. What distinguishes it is that it combines these benefits with a far better taste than similar ingredients. This means a more pleasurable experience for patients, which is particularly important considering the profound consequences of poor nutritional compliance during recovery.”
