Protein and exercise
Those of us who work out actively benefit from protein in our everyday life not only as a good source of energy, but because it contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. Fitness enthusiasts and athletes are interested about whey protein and its effects on performance and recovery.
Protein is also beneficial for dieters and in weight management
Protein can provide those of us watching our weight with a variety of benefits. Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass also during dieting. Foods that contain protein also add wholesomeness to a diet regimen.
Protein helps maintain muscle mass when ageing
The diet of elderly people must be varied to support well-being and functionality. Besides the sufficient intake of energy, it is important to ensure that you get enough protein. Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass and bones, and thereby the overall well-being of an elderly person as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Protein-enriched dairy products with excellent texture and taste
Protein is an essential nutrient in the human diet. High-protein foods are gaining in popularity among mainstream consumers because of their health benefits. Thus, they offer new commercial potential for dairy manufacturers.
Dairy products, in particular, are a natural and effective source of protein. However, high-protein dairy goods are challenging to manufacture because added protein often gives dairy products an undesirable taste and grainy texture. We at Valio have solved this problem; therefore, we can help dairy manufacturers produce high-protein dairy products with excellent texture and taste.
High-protein dairy products that taste good and have excellent sensory properties
Our solution can easily be incorporated into your current dairy production processes and does not compromise the sensory properties of the products. We can help you in designing recipes and processes, so that you can manufacture high-protein dairy products efficiently and accurately with the optimal composition of ingredients.
Indulgence products and the high-protein trend – protein products are going mainstream
We are currently witnessing a protein boom, and not just in a fitness-oriented target group but among all consumers. As a result, the market for products with a ‘protein source’ claim is growing rapidly. The protein boom is especially strong in younger generations, which builds a solid foundation for long-term growth in protein enriched products.
Protein is a component that consumers want to add more of into their diet, also in the indulgence category. High-protein indulgence products, such as chocolate puddings, help consumers balance between deliciousness and healthy connotations. Meet the trend of protein enriched and nutritious food products by adding the benefits of high-quality milk protein to your portfolio.
