Arla Foods Ingredients is taking advantage of increasing demand for material nutrition food and drink products with the launch of a new ‘Smart Mama’ concept.
The launch has seen the development of two new drink and bar protypes which both contain the ingredient Lacprodan MFGM-10 – a whey protein concentrate featuring the benefits of milk fat globule membranes (MFGMs).
The Smart Mama prototypes are available now, offering manufacturers the opportunity to launch a premium functional product into the rapidly growing market for maternal nutrition food and drink products.
“Our Smart Mama drink and Smart Mama bar concepts are convenient, offer a great taste and provide Lacprodan MFGM-10, which has documented benefits for brain development when applied in early-life nutrition products,” said Anne Staudt Kvistgaard, Arla Foods Ingredients’ Senior Manager of Early Life Nutrition.
The Smart Mama drink is low-fat, offers a source of protein and calcium, and contains high levels of folic acid, which helps prevent neural tube birth defects, Arla said.
