Arla Foods Ingredients launched MicelPure Organic, an organic micellar casein isolate with a minimum of 87% native protein.

Arla Foods Ingredients (Basking Ridge, NJ) launched MicelPure Organic, an organic micellar casein isolate with a minimum of 87% native protein and extracted from milk using gentle processing without the addition of acids. It is suitable for functional health foods and active-nutrition applications, low in lactose and fat, heat-stable, and neutral tasting.

“When consumers hear organic, they think healthy, sustainable, and wholesome,” said Barbara Jensen, business development manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, in a press release. “However, 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.”

Joe Katterfield, business development manager for sports nutrition and health foods at Arla Foods Ingredients, said in a press release, “Protein’s benefits for muscle growth, recovery, and weight management have driven consumer demand in a range of categories. But while the high-protein trend is definitely here to stay, manufacturers also have to meet many other needs. MicelPure combines high protein levels and functionality with an offer of healthy wholesomeness that increases appeal.”

MicelPure Organic can be used in a number of food applications cooking-stable cheeses, yogurt, ice cream, pudding, as well as health and performance applications such as ready-to-drink high-protein beverages and powder shakes.
