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

Core users

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

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

Arla Food Ingredients specialise in producing premium quality whey proteins and whey derived ingredients that can be used in a wide range of high protein solutions designed to help core users achieve their sports performance goals.
