The ingredient – branded ProTherma - is described as an, “agglomerated hydrolyzed whey protein designed to withstand high temperatures giving it the ability to stay soluble and stable when added to hot water”. ProTherma completely dissolves with no coagulation, added the company in a press release.
The ingredient allows for protein fortification in hot ready-to-mix powdered applications that include coffees, teas, hot chocolates, malt drinks, soups, oatmeals, coffee pods and coffee creamers.
“With the growing demand for hot beverages and the continued interest from consumers for protein enriched products, the addition of ProTherma to our portfolio will provide an exciting new alternative for our customers and their consumers. We have made it easier to formulate heat stable and protein rich ready-to-mix powdered applications,” said Ram Nimmagudda, Ph.D., Senior Director Performance and Wellness Bioactives for Glanbia Nutritionals.
ProTherma is GRAS, Kosher and Halal approved.
