Arla Foods Ingredients, a Scandinavian multinational cooperative based in Viby, Denmark, has launched the first ever organic micellar casein isolate, Suitable for food, functional health foods and active nutrition applications.
It contains a minimum of 87 percent native protein and is the company's first ingredient to be offered in an organic version, made from certified organic milk from Denmark.
Helping manufacturers meet demand for organic, natural and functional protein products, Arla Foods Ingredients’ new micellar casein isolate, MicelPure is low in lactose and fat, heat-stable and taste-neutral.
Rich in native milk proteins, micellar casein isolate is extracted from milk using gentle processing without the addition of acids. The protein maintains its chemical structure, allowing the creation of products that are as close to nature as possible.
Barbara Jensen, Business Development Manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “A shortage of natural, organic protein ingredients has prevented many manufacturers from entering this market.
MicelPure Organic fills the gap, allowing companies to extend their portfolios with products that are both organic and packed with high-quality protein.”
Samples of MicelPure are available for food applications such as cooking-stable cheeses, yogurts and ice cream and puddings, as well as health and performance applications, such as ready-to-drink high-protein beverages
