High-protein demand in female fitness
Sport nutrition consumer segment

Female fitness

High-protein demand in female fitness

An emerging, rapidly growing market segment can no longer be overlooked. The number of women who consume high-protein products is growing at a phenomenal rate that does not look like it will decline any time soon.

Driven by a higher demand for protein products and an increased acceptance of products previously associated with extremely muscular males, female consumers are buying sports nutrition products to achieve their performance, aesthetic and health goals. That makes the female fitness market a very attractive business opportunity for sports nutrition manufacturers.

Due to the quality of the raw material, gentle treatment as well as the purity of our whey proteins and whey derived ingredients, Arla Food Ingredients can provide healthy and effective application technologies that are tasty, convenient and appealing applications for this target group. These include crystal clear, 100% whey protein waters, delicious high-protein bars and cookies and many other products that can be tailored to customer specifications.

All our sports nutrition ingredients are kosher and halal certified.
