Best quality proteins for a strong later life
Protein malnutrition is a growing challenge for the elderly in general and among elderly people with chronic diseases. It affects morbidity and mortality in a number of ways and results in reduced quality of life and increasing health care costs for society.
Whey protein is considered one of the best quality proteins. The amino acid profile of whey protein fully covers, and even exceeds, human requirements for essential amino acids according to the requirements set by the Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization FAO/WHO. Whey protein furthermore has very high digestibility, making it ideal for helping to prevent protein malnutrition.
