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.

Whey has traditionally been considered the gold standard in sports because of its excellent nutritional profile and rapid absorption resulting in a higher level of muscle synthesis. 

However, consumption of SureProtein™ Fast MPC after exercise results in a similar pattern of amino acid appearance as whey protein, unlike standard milk protein ingredients.

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.

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 4868 will get the benefits of the fast-absorbing protein with high leucine content, which supports muscle maintenance.

SureProtein™ Fast MPC 4868 has been specifically developed to deliver significantly faster rates of amino acid absorption after consumption in comparison to a standard MPC ingredient while maintaining the preferred sensory properties. Our functional ingredient enables the formulation of beverages containing fast-absorbing proteins, at a high dose, to support muscle synthesis in the body.
