Consumers were looking for products with milder sports nutrition qualities, such as Glanbia’s Avonmore Protein Milk, as they were leading more active lives, said Denis Carrigan, head of research and development at Glanbia Nutritional’s consumer food division.
The low-fat milk contains an added 50% extra high quality whey and casein protein than regular milk, Carrigan told FoodManufacture.co.uk in this podcast.
‘Aid muscle recovery’
“Consumers are looking for foods to aid muscle recovery without having to use a dedicated sports nutritional product,” he added.
