EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., July 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Davisco, Business Unit of Agropur Inc. will be exhibiting at the Institute of Food Technologists Food Expo in Chicago July 12-14 (Booth 961) highlighting new whey protein ingredients. These latest ingredients are ideal for protein fortification of snack foods and other nutritional products with the high quality and high purity whey proteins for which Davisco is known.
A protein-packed 6 oz. nighttime beverage containing 20 grams high quality alpha-lactalbumin with approximately 2 grams leucine and 1 gram tryptophan highlights what can be done with Davisco's industry-leading high purity whey protein fraction. This product concept highlights not only the unique nutritional profile of this alpha-lactalbumin isolate, but the heat stability, clarity and clean-flavor suitable for aseptically-processed low acid beverages and supplements. This ingredient is most broadly used for infant nutrition products and is also suitable for targeted nutritional products seeking high levels of natural tryptophan with whey protein quality and functionality. The beverage prototype is naturally flavored with ginger and sweetened with sugar to highlight the exceptionally clean flavor of Davisco's Alpha. This combination of protein per serving, amino acid profile and nutritional quality, clean-flavor, high clarity and superior heat stability in a low acid beverage is only possible with 90% pure Alpha-lactalbumin.
A trail mix bar with premium visible particulates and held together with a viscosity-controlled binder highlights two new ingredients from Davisco suitable for snack foods. BioZate® 7 is a high purity hydrolyzed whey protein isolate that can be used at high levels while maintaining product and process-friendly texture and viscosity. Unique to BioZate® 7 is an absence of bitterness and a protein purity typically at 95% dry basis. Both BioZate 7 and Davisco's WPC-80 Heat Stable ingredient are also used in a whey protein crisp, extruded on a twin-screw extruder to highlight the light texture and air-cell stabilization that is possible in 50% and 60% protein crisps. The complete trail mix bar prototype is formulated to have 10 grams protein in a 40 gram serving, with ginger, nuts, pumpkin seeds, and a Thai spice seasoning blend in a unique premium savory whey protein concept.
