Hydrolyzates: Our latest Launches

By marzo 27, 2024 abril 4th, 2024 No Comments

Proteins are essential components of our daily diet, yet there are times when our bodies fall short of their necessary intake, particularly during physically demanding activities such as intense workouts or weightlifting. Athletes, especially, require elevated protein consumption to sustain their heightened physical exertion.

During weightlifting or intense training, small tears occur in the muscle fibers. While this is a natural consequence of strength training and poses no harm, it’s crucial for these fibers to undergo repair for muscle tissue regeneration and growth. This repair process underscores the significance of proteins. They play a pivotal role in expediting muscle recovery, enabling the body to rebound and perform optimally in subsequent workouts. 

Hydrolyzed proteins undergo hydrolysis, a process that breaks them down into smaller, more easily digestible components called peptides. These smaller peptides are quicker to absorb, making them ideal for facilitating muscle recovery and growth following intense physical activity.

Market Overview

We will focus on three key market segments:

  • The infant formula market has witnessed substantial growth between 2015 and 2019, with over 16,648 products introduced. Among them, 235 formulas containing hydrolyzed milk and/or whey proteins stand out1.  Experiencing a 9.5% annual increase between 2018 and 2023, this market segment is estimated to be valued at $24.04 billion2. These broken-down proteins facilitate digestion and are well-suited for infants with food sensitivities, showcasing the industry’s dedication to offering safe and effective options for infant care and nutritional requirements.
