Healthy bones need sufficient dietary intake of minerals

As we age, we start to lose bone mass and density, which can cause osteoporosis. Fractures from osteoporosis are a leading cause of disability among elderly. Mineral intake is an essential part of improved bone health, and calcium is a crucial building block of bone tissue.

Improve mineral content of your products to boost senior citizens’ bone health

Functional dairy ingredients add valuable minerals in your products. This can help the elderly fight low bone mineral density and reduce risk of osteoporotic bone fractures. With Valio Eila® lactose free skimmed milk powder, food manufacturers can improve the mineral and protein content of their products:

  • Calcium naturally found in milk ingredients may reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women
  • Calcium enhances the maintenance of normal bones
  • Phosphorus aids in the upkeep of normal bones
