core users in sports nutrition - athlete building muscle mass with whey protein
Sport nutrition consumer segment

Core users

Bodybuilders and athletes were for a long time the only regular consumers of sports nutrition products. Although the consumption of these products has begun to spread throughout various other groups as well, athletes and especially bodybuilders still make up the largest part of the sports nutrition market.

The first stop for most core users is a high quality source of protein, and it is well established that whey protein is the best available for building muscle mass and improving muscle recovery.

Arla Food Ingredients specialises in producing premium quality whey proteins and whey-derived ingredients for solutions that help core users achieve their sports performance goals. We deliver first-class quality ingredients to our sports nutrition customers, just as we do for some of the most demanding infant formula and medical nutrition customers in the world.
