Sport nutrition

Meet the needs of active adults with our protein enriched solutions for the wellness market.

Conscious consumers

Health and wellness are growing industry trends. Maintaining a fit and active lifestyle are now everyday goals, where consumers invest in quality nutrition, and demand sustainable and clean label options.

Forerunner in nutritional innovations

Dairy ingredients are an excellent source of nutrition as they feature benefits such as high-quality protein - complete with all nine amino acids essential for the human body - as well as minerals and vitamins that are complementary for active and health-conscious lifestyles. Our digestive system absorbs milk protein effectively, making dairy an easily accessible supply of nutrients.

As a market leader in sports nutrition in Finland, Valio pioneers protein enriched dairy ingredients that meet the highest quality and nutrition standards, ideal for active adults. Our Valio PROfeel® product range is developed using fresh whey protein - through our unique patented production method - resulting in a great-tasting product that contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass as part of a healthy lifestyle.

GMO & Antibiotic free

Our ingredients are fully traceable to their origin, free of antibiotic residues and subject to strict quality controls. We use only GMO-free feed for cows and our products do not contain or are produced from GMOs (EC Regulation 1829/2003 and 1830/2003). Our aim is to become a carbon neutral dairy by 2035.
