Functional ingredients at the forefront

Consumers continue to take an unprecedented interest in immunity and have now become more aware that the body is defending itself all year round and are focusing on preventative measures to maintain long term immune health. 

We’ve also seen that a more holistic view is taken in terms of general health and consumers are now focused on how to feel good both mentally and physically, not only in the short term, but taking these measures to remain feeling good as they age and as preventative. 

In a recently Fonterra conducted Ipsos Consumer Wellness Index survey across various European markets, Asia and the US, concerns around sleep and stress came though as a very common thread.1

Come talk to us to discover how NZMP Lactoferrin, Probiotics and Milk phospholipids can help you tap into this still growing trend.

Our proteins cover four ranges for different performance requirements and delivering a range of end-product protein levels.  These are ingredients specifically for; low viscosity or texture boosting, gelling and our foundation range, which is for high quality protein ingredients in everyday yoghurt formulations. Also, by using specific combinations of our protein ingredients, customers can limit their ingredients list and offer a clean label product, an attribute that is increasingly being looked out for by consumers.
