Health and exercise enthusiasts love protein powder drink mixes. They’d love them even more if their flavor choices weren’t so limited. Because of the makeup of whey protein isolate, protein powders have only been available with flavors like vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. Citrus or berry? Simply not available, at least not in a tasty, clear, and refreshing format. Until now.
BevEdge™ Whey Protein A-220W overcomes the challenges of creating berry- and citrus-flavored, high-acid protein powder drink mixes. Typical lecithinated whey protein isolate does not work well in high acid environments. The new ingredient is made with Glanbia Nutritionals' BevEdge instant dispersion technology, meaning it mixes easily and won’t clump or float. And because the breakthrough ingredient is preacidified to pH under 3.5, it allows for great-tasting fruit flavors. It also delivers a clearer end product than lecithinated proteins.
BevEdge™ Whey Protein A-220W is a boon for manufacturers in other ways as well. Its large, uniform particle size reduces dusting, creating a much less messy production process, cutting down on waste and reducing processing downtime.
