Benefits of Whey Protein Hydrolysates in Clinical Nutrition
Whey protein hydrolysates deliver all the benefits of whey protein but are more rapidly absorbed and easily digested, ensuring increased amino acid availability to support the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Whey protein has also shown positive nutritional benefits for specific needs, such as protein malnutrition, critical care, GI disorders, sarcopenia and glycaemic management.
- Reduced allergenic potential compared to intact proteins
- Easier digestion compared to intact protein and free amino acids
- Faster absorption compared to intact proteins
Our dedicated range of hydrolysed whey proteins for comfort formulae are specifically designed and tested for antigenicity, molecular weight distribution and degree of hydrolysis and taste to ensure a consistent quality for this sensitive consumer group.
Absorption rates using peak total amino acid concentration as a key marker.
When it comes to absorption, whey protein hydrolysates are the fastest protein source with peak total AA’s occurring at +/- 30 mins post ingestion.
In the past RTD manufacturers typically had to rely on casein-based ingredients or compromise on the protein level to avoid taste issues. Optipep® RTD 8051 is a significant breakthrough allowing manufacturers to offer an all whey protein in a great tasting RTD beverage.
