Meet the megatrend demands of healthy ageing and sugar reduction

Wellness is an ongoing megatrend in food. Consumers in all age groups are looking for better-for-you food products that support their personal dietary needs and choices. Senior citizens want to age healthily, and chocolate lovers want to eat their chocolate with a better conscience. Valio has the value-adding ingredients and expertise to help food manufacturers meet these needs, whether they are looking to reduce sugar or add cognitive benefits in their food products.

Develop desirable food products for healthy ageing – phospholipids in dairy fat show promise for brain health

“Some of the major concerns among the ageing population are losing mobility and memory, and as a result, their independence. Thus, ageing adults are willing to invest in innovations that help them maintain their physical activity and cognitive functions”, says Minja Miettinen, Senior Research Manager at Valio.

Valio Eila™ NUTRI F+ lactose free formulated milk protein powder fulfils the key nutritional needs of the elderly. It contains phospholipids that have been associated with improved memory and cognition in several scientific studies. But it also gives a full taste and texture, helping Valio’s customers to formulate their products to the taste of older adults. It works in several applications, such as milk powders, special nutrition drinks, dairy drinks, nutritious food and dietary products.
