Davisco to Showcase Innovative Protein Products at SupplySide West.
Eden Prairie, MN - October 5, 2015 - Davisco, business unit of Agropur inc., will showcase innovative whey protein products at SupplySide West Oct. 5-9 in Las Vegas. A new alpha-lactalbumin protein drink prototype will be at Davisco’s booth (No. 4632), along with a premium trail mix protein bar.
Alpha-lactalbumin is the primary protein in human breast milk and is uniquely rich in tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin. The neurotransmitter serotonin affects mood and studies show that alpha-lactalbumin, a common ingredient in infant formula, improves morning alertness and attention when consumed in the evening. Davisco manufactures the cleanest commercially available form of alpha-lactalbumin at more than 92 percent purity and recently hosted a first-of-its-kind educational conference on the protein called Alpha Summit 2015.
Davisco’s premium trail mix whey protein bar contains BioZate® 7, a hydrolyzed whey protein that is lactose-, fat- and gluten-free. Hydrolysis is a natural process that improves a protein’s bioavailability and bioactivity. The hydrolyzed protein found in Davisco’s premium trail mix bar prototype can be absorbed quicker than other whey protein types such as concentrates and isolates.
“Our alpha-lactalbumin protein beverage and premium trail mix protein bar prototypes are more high-quality products that show Davisco is at the forefront of whey protein innovation,” said Polly Olson, vice president of new business development, sales and marketing at Davisco. “We’ve already received positive feedback on both items and are excited to share their wonderful properties with SupplySide West attendees.”
Craig Sherwin, director of Davisco’s whey protein technology center, will be on hand to answer questions about the alpha-lactalbumin beverage and trail mix bar prototypes. Sherwin will also conduct a brief presentation at the event’s central stage at 12:10 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
SupplySide West is an annual conference that exhibits new findings in animal nutrition, beverage, cosmetics, dietary supplements, sports nutrition, food and pharmaceutical industries.
