Ingredients for Sports Nutrition and Health Foods: A NewProtein Special Focus


What are the key factors to consider when selecting functional ingredients for sports nutrition and health food products?

  • Purpose: Different functional ingredients will offer distinct benefits, such as enhancing endurance, promoting muscle growth, and facilitating recovery.
  • Quality: Functional food ingredients should be pure, free of contaminants, have proven efficacy, and be consistent.
  • Dosage: The dosage of the functional ingredients should be appropriate for the intended use and should be clearly labeled on the product.
  • Compatibility: The functional ingredients should be compatible with other ingredients in the product and should not negatively interact with other supplements or medications that a user may be taking.
  • Taste and Texture: Products must be palatable and enjoyable in order to encourage regular use.
  • Approval: The functional ingredients selected must be approved for use in the specific application and region.

Thankfully, ingredient suppliers are very good at demonstrating the features and benefits of their products, and they offer excellent support to food product developers as they carry out prototype testing, market research, and scale-up.

In this NewProtein special focus, you'll find ingredients for Protein Enrichment/Fortification, ingredients/insights on improving Cognitive Health, and the latest updates for your Gut Health/Microbiome.
