Consuming quality protein immediately after exercise is key to optimise muscle recovery and maximise building lean muscle.

Athletes know that quality nutrition is important to reap the maximum benefits of exercise. The faster appearance of essential amino acids in the blood results in a greater muscle protein synthesis response; the desired outcome of the exercise.

While whey protein has traditionally been considered the gold standard in sports Fast Milk Protein provides a new science story from which to engage consumers in the sports and healthy lifestyle segment, through taking MPC from a ‘slow’ protein to a ‘fast’ protein.

Create unique differentiation within the protein beverage market.

Consuming quality protein is vital for muscle health which is crucial for a fulfilling life at every stage.

From getting active everyday to staying independent in senior years, NZMP's range of Functional Milk Protein Concentrates can be used to create great tasting, functional beverages to support your target consumers needs. 

High-quality protein, available quickly to patients when their body needs it most.

Formulating compact beverages with high levels of protein and desirable taste and texture is difficult. Low compliance rates within hospitals are symptomatic of the issues that manufacturers face when processing proteins.


Patients consuming oral nutritional supplements which contain SureProtein™ Fast MPC 4861 will get the benefits of the fast-absorbing protein with high leucine content, which supports muscle maintenance.

Ideal for yoghurts that need a thick and creamy texture.
