Let's develop healthy protein products with high nutritional quality

A market driven by plant-based protein

Sports nutrition market has experienced a strong increase over the last few years.

Once dominated by high-level athletes seeking performance, the development of the market is explained by the emergence of consumers desire for a healthy lifestyle, getting aware of the importance of physical activity and of the link between physical and mental well-being.

There are many opportunities to launch products combining nutritional quality, convenience and taste in sports nutrition.

Sports protein-based products are mainly proposed in powder form, followed by bars and ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. While whey protein concentrate (WPC) remains the most common ingredient in this market, the growth can be explained by the gaining interest in plant-based proteins for ethical reasons but also because of the digestive discomfort that lactose can cause in dairy-based sports products. In fact, according to a survey conducted by V-label Gmhb in 2021, 71% of sports nutrition consumers say that "plant-based proteins" are attractive, ahead of “whey protein” where 69% say so. There is a huge opportunity for the development of vegan sports nutrition products.

We make and offer you a range of nutri-functional ingredients for enrichments in plant-based proteins or fibers to improve the sports performance and to meet the needs of the sports nutrition market.
