Derived from cows’ milk, Nutrilac PB-8420 ensures protein bars retain a chewy texture for 12 months or more in ambient storage conditions, said Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI).
AFI showcased a 28% protein apple and coconut bar using the whey at the IFT17 Annual Meeting & Food Expo in Las Vegas at the end of June.
Neutral tasting protein water
Also on display was a protein water formulated with AFI’s Lacprodan DI-9213, a whey protein isolate claimed to be neutral in taste and easily absorbed into the body.
In addition, visitors were able to sample a chocolate cookie made with whey protein Nutrilac YO-8075. AFI said the protein gives the end-product “a crunchy texture and excellent taste”.
“These solutions all address common problems with texture and taste, opening the door to new product development that will tap into the growing popularity of high protein products,” said Inge Lise Povlsen, senior category manager for bakery and beverages at AFI.
