Lactalis Ingredients launches new micellar casein isolate
The ageing population is driving demand for functional food and drink. The number of older persons worldwide should reportedly double by 2050. And as people live longer, their sick years increase. It means that life expectancy is growing but not the healthy one. That is why healthy ageing will be one of the main concerns in the coming years. Consumers are looking for food that helps them live healthier for longer and prevent the occurrence of health problems.
Lactalis Ingredients has launched Pronativ Native Micellar Casein to meet the needs of consumers who want to take care of their health proactively. Pronativ Native Micellar Casein is a new reference of native protein. Combining superior nutritional and functional properties, Pronativ Native Micellar Casein is ideal to fulfil the unique needs of the nutrition industry. This native protein meets the needs of consumers looking to support their active lifestyle, as well as provide nutritional solutions for healthy ageing and medical applications.
Pronativ Native Micellar Casein is a minimally-processed protein. It is extracted directly from milk using gentle processing with no added ingredients or chemicals. This non-denaturing process allows Lactalis to obtain a native protein, very close to the conformation of the protein present in the milk.

Lactalis Ingredients’ new micellar casein isolate contains 88% protein and is suitable for protein- enrichment of food and beverages. Its features include:
