Beta-lactoglobulin – A Game-Changer for Sports Nutrition

Beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) is a whey protein that offers a range of new opportunities for medical nutrition and sports nutrition manufacturers. Lacprodan® BLG-100 is a pure BLG ingredient with a unique nutritional profile. Produced using Arla Foods’ Ingredients’ patented new separation technology, it contains 45% more leucine – the main muscle-building amino acid – than commercially available whey protein isolates.

In addition to its naturally high leucine content, Lacprodan® BLG-100 provides 26% more essential amino acids (EAAs) and 40% more branched-chain amino acids than commercially available whey protein. It offers a better taste than leucine as a single amino acid, and it’s ideal for sports nutrition applications like clear ready-to-drink beverages and powder shakes.

Consuming high-quality protein in sufficient amounts is also a key nutritional need for patients and elderly people. The high leucine content of Lacprodan® BLG-100 means it can support muscle protein synthesis to minimise the loss of muscle mass and sustain physical mobility.
