Whey protein hydrolysates

Whey protein hydrolysates – nutrition for hospital patients

The whey protein hydrolysates in the Arla Foods Ingredients portfolio include mild to extensively hydrolysed whey proteins that support health in various ways. Enteral nutrition formulas are among the application possibilities.

Our hydrolysed products are enzymatically treated for the fastest possible absorption in the human body.

Whey protein hydrolysates may improve nutritional status and gut and liver functions in specific patient groups and can help prevent loss of lean body mass during hospitalisation, shortening hospital stays. For patients who depend on enteral feeding products, maintenance of body mass is particularly key.

Whey protein hydrolysates may also improve blood glucose control in people with metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes. This is due to a superior insulinotropic effect compared to intact proteins.
