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, the company said. According to the company, this product concept highlights not only the unique nutritional profile of this alpha-lactalbumin isolate, but the heat stability, clarity and clean-flavour suitable for aseptically-processed low acid beverages and supplements.

The ingredient is most broadly used for infant nutrition products and is also claimed to be suitable for targeted nutritional products seeking high levels of natural tryptophan with whey protein quality and functionality.

The beverage prototype is naturally flavoured with ginger and sweetened with sugar to highlight what the company says is the exceptionally clean flavour of Davisco’s Alpha. This combination of protein per serving, amino acid profile and nutritional quality, clean-flavour, high clarity and superior heat stability in a low acid beverage is, it says, 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 described as a high purity hydrolysed whey protein isolate that can be used at high levels while maintaining product and process-friendly texture and viscosity. Claimed to be 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 stabilisation 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 savoory whey protein concept.
