Mieke Acda, Product Group Manager at FrieslandCampina DMV explains: “Consumers and athletes around the world are increasingly looking beyond just ingredients towards more natural less processed nutritional solutions with proven benefits. Our journey in developing this solution started with understanding the requirements of elite athletes. Our end user research indicated athletes’ priorities lie in supporting their recovery and increasing their performance to the maximum – but so far there was no premium solution available that ticked all the right boxes. Micelate™ Prestige addresses those needs and is now available to sports nutrition manufacturers looking to tap into overnight recovery and the “clean & natural” label trend.”
Just as with regular micellar casein, Micelate™ Prestige extraction process starts with fresh milk, but that is where the similarities end. Micelate™ Prestige micellar casein isolate is obtained through microfiltration, which results in a 95:5 casein: whey ratio. It is cold-processed and native which means the structure of the micelles is comparable to that of fresh milk. Instantised for ease-of-use, Micelate™ Prestige offers a pleasant sensory experience. It is an ideal component for high protein powdered beverages. Its slow digestion profile makes it suited for products aimed towards evening consumption.
FrieslandCampina invites you to join their upcoming webinar on March 23rd, where Dr. Oliver Witard, University of Stirling, will explain the differences in nutritional quality and digestion profile among various protein sources.
