Many consumers associate healthy food with lack of pleasure and limitation. At wheyco we actively work on solutions that make healthy products a treat rather than a pain to eat.
Our wheyco product solutions address protein enrichment, salt reduction and balancing sweetness
A healthy lifestyle is what many people are looking for. Being active and consuming a diet with the right balance of carbohydrates, fat and protein is key to achieving this goal. Amongst macronutrients there is an increasing focus on protein consumption to optimize diet in different stages of life and that way improve health.
Research shows that most people from their thirties onwards will benefit from a higher intake of protein of the right dietary quality. The international protein Board IBP recently published new recommendations on protein intake per day.
Many people find it difficult to incorporate sufficient protein into their daily diet. Moderate protein enrichment throughout many different foods can be a healthy option without sacrificing taste and texture. wheyco product solutions provide the optimum features to achieve this.
• Quality of protein
• Amount of protein consumed per day
• Distribution of daily protein consumption
wheyco product solutions help you to address each of these factors. Whey protein is one of the few proteins containing all essential amino acids and is therefore of superior nutrition quality. We offer product solutions with different functionalities targeting technological challenges in food manufacturing. With their pleasant taste profile on top it is easy to incorporate our products in many food varieties. That way it is easy to achieve the right protein intake per day.
A globally high salt intake and the related increase of cardio vascular diseases led to public health concerns. In conclusion WHO member states committed themselves to are voluntary relative reduction of 30% in mean population intake of salt. The aim is to achieve a target of less than 5 g/day (approximately 2g sodium) by 2025.
So far meta data indicate a global sodium intake of 3.95 g/day in adults in 2010, equivalent to about 10 g salt/day. This is twice as much as targeted by the WHO and illustrates the challenge for the food industry.
wheyco product solutions optimize the flavor profile of your product while reducing salt and that way help to achieve the new targets for sodium intake.
Excess of sugar consumption is regarded as one major contributor to multiple health-related issues, including weight gain, type II diabetes and cardio vascular diseases. Restriction of added sugars is therefore not only a recommendation by the WHO, many nations have adopted it in their national dietary recommendations or even implemented sugar taxes to trigger sugar reduction.
However, sugar does not only contribute to sweetness, but also to color and texture and it influences the total flavor profile of foods. At the same time consumers are used to high sweetness intensity of foods and therefore a stepwise reduction of sugar is often the method of choice to adapt to lower levels of sweetness.
wheyco product solutions deliver on reduction of sweetness or sugar while helping to maintain other product features like depth in flavor, mouthfeel and appearance.
