Whey Protein Flexes Its Muscles in the Fight Agains Sarcopenia
Thursday, April 23, 2015 (600 reads)

Arla Foods Ingredients is predicting a long-term increase in demand for whey protein ingredients suitable for use in products that address sarcopenia in seniors. Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass with advancing age and is common in elderly people. “The benefits of whey protein are well documented. It is more rapidly absorbed by the body compared with other protein sources and is known to increase muscle protein synthesis after exercise in both young and older people. Whey also offers a highly nutritional amino acid profile and is particularly rich in leucine, which initiates muscle protein synthesis. This package of benefits makes whey ingredients the perfect solution for addressing sarcopenia,” states Peter Schouw Andersen, Business Development Manager for Performance Health & Nutrition at Arla Foods Ingredients.
