 Arla’s New Ingredient Provides A Protein Boost For Dairy Products  

Arla Foods Ingredients has launched Nutrilac® Hi-Pro Improvers, a range of functional milk proteins that boost protein levels in dairy products to as high as 10% without negatively impacting on taste and texture.

Made from natural milk proteins, Hi-Pro Improvers make it possible to pack a bigger protein punch into yogurts and dairy beverages, as well as ice creams – tapping into the increasing popularity of premium, high protein products among mainstream consumers.

Hi-Pro Improvers facilitate the creation of delicious and nutritious products with increased protein content without damaging the sensory properties of a product, and with no dryness or graininess – previously a major challenge for manufacturers of high-protein products. When using Hi-Pro Improvers, dairy companies can maintain complete control of texture, whether they are producing a thick, spoonable yogurt or a refreshing dairy drink.

Hi-Pro Improvers will enable dairy manufacturers to create high quality products, containing up to 10% protein, that are simultaneously natural, healthy and indulgent – tapping into three of the food & beverage industry’s key trends at the same time. Even stirred yogurts with very high protein content – once a ‘Holy Grail’ for dairy producers – are now within reach thanks to the unique benefits of Hi-Pro Improvers.

Torben Jensen, Application Manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “Nutrilac® Hi-Pro Improvers eliminate all the processing and quality issues that have previously limited the addition of high levels of protein to food products. For the growing numbers of people following a high-protein diet, these difficulties have until now forced them to consume large quantities of protein-enriched products to reach their requirements. But the launch of Hi-Pro Improvers means that it is possible, at last, to incorporate much more protein into smaller portions. This innovation presents manufacturers with the opportunity to create a real point of difference that will add to their brand appeal and competitive edge.”

Potential applications for Hi-Pro Improvers include Greek-style yogurts, which are riding on a wave of popularity on both sides of the Atlantic. Fat-reduced dairy products that don’t compromise on quality are also within reach, as are high-protein juice and milk blends.

Torben Jensen added: “Protein-rich foods are no longer just for bodybuilders – lots of people are realising the benefits of a high-protein diet. Hi-Pro Improvers from Arla Foods Ingredients are natural milk proteins that open the door to a wealth of new product development possibilities. They are easy to work with on a processing line and bring protein enrichment and a premium dairy taste to a range of dairy products. Hi-Pro Improvers are the starting point for developing premium quality, delicious and nutritious high-protein dairy products with huge consumer appeal.”
