Our Solutions

BevEdge™ Whey Protein A-220W

This revolutionary ingredient makes berry and citrus flavoured protein powdered mixes possible for the first time.

A clean label solution with excellent high acid flavour expression and no unsightly cloudiness typical of high acid RTM mixes, this ingredient creates opportunities for new SKUs and new types of protein powders. Label simply as whey protein isolate, citric acid.
