Natural sports drink

Top has developed a natural sports drink based on fresh whey as part of the Dutch IPC project Food, Sports and Health.

A study by Top on the functioning of proteins shows that minimally processed and unheated proteins potentially have a better contribution to muscle recovery after exercise, which leads to better sports performance. Therefore, the sports drink is based on fresh whey, which is only mildly treated with pascalisation to ensure food safety and an extended shelf life.

Convenience, natural and minimally processed claims are the main features of the drink, named RE:Balance. As well as fresh whey, it also includes fresh blackcurrant and beet juice. As such, it is not only rich in protein (10%), but also contains fibre and micronutrients, including potassium and magnesium, which are relevant for muscle recovery after exercise.
