Lactalis Ingredients announces new instant whey protein range with sunflower lecithin
Lactalis Ingredients, a producer of healthy and clean dairy ingredients, now offers a range of allergen-free instant whey protein produced with sunflower lecithin.
Lecithin is added to whey protein powder to help the powder become instant when mixing and clump-free, which is ideal for shakes.
The demand for sunflower lecithin is growing on the back of the ever-increasing demand for natural products coupled with the stigmatisation of soy lecithin as soy has been linked to allergen problems. Sunflower lecithin is hypoallergenic, sustainable and does not need to be declared as an allergen. Unlike soy, it is naturally guaranteed GMO-free because no genetically modified sunflower plants have been grown commercially anywhere in the world.
This trend can also be found in many other applications such as bakery and confectionery indicating a global move towards the use of sunflower lecithin.
The new range of instant whey protein with sunflower lecithin is produced in its plant in Retiers, France.
Available for the native whey protein Pronativ and whey protein Laktein WPC80/WPI, the new references meet the requirements of manufacturers:
- Good solubility
- Neutral taste
- 79 to 95 % protein on dry matter
- Low lactose reference
