DAVISCO DEVELOPS A HIGHLY PURIFIED PROTEIN
As a pioneer in the field of whey protein isolate research, Davisco Foods provides 65% of the world’s whey protein and is distributed in more than 55 countries around the world. Davisco Foods began as a small creamery in 1943 and the undulating currents of the dairy market led them to take chances and diversify their products. Long known as a high-volume cheese producer, the once-considered waste whey was harnessed and eventually the whey protein alpha-lactalbumin was isolated for the infant formula market.
Davisco’s expertise in protein isolation and purification technologies has resulted in the development of this highly purified form of alpha-lactalbumin. This allows consumers to take advantage of the unique nutritional properties of alpha-lactalbumin that are not expressed in milk, purified whey protein concentrates, or whey protein isolates.
BIOZZZ IMPROVES SLEEP AND HEALTH
Consumers are looking for natural ways to improve their sleep and to improve their health in general. BioZzz provides the natural protein source, alpha-lactalbumin, to accomplish both those goals. BioZzz is manufactured and sold as a pure, unflavored, instantized alpha-lactalbumin that allows consumers the flexibility to incorporate it into almost any food or beverage of their choice. By providing 20 g of soluble protein, it will quickly become part of their daily nutrition routine.
BioZzz Alpha-lactalbumin is rich in the essential amino acid tryptophan, containing the highest level of tryptophan naturally available from a protein source, at 4.8 g tryptophan per 100 g protein. Tryptophan is the least abundant amino acid in the diet, and is the precursor to serotonin (a neurotransmitter) and melatonin (a neurohormone). Studies have shown that consuming alpha-lactalbumin rich in tryptophan may improve sleep quality and morning alertness, cognitive performance under stress, and mood under stress.
THE BENEFITS OF ALPHA-LACTALBUMIN INTAKE
The end user further benefits from BioZzz Alpha-lactalbumin because it provides a purified source of the whey protein, alpha-lactalbumin. Alpha-lactalbumin is a high quality, complete protein source containing low levels of the minerals calcium, phosphorus and potassium, which is critical for people monitoring intake of these minerals.
The use of the purified whey protein, alpha-lactalbumin in infant formula also allows infant formula manufacturers to more closely mimic the composition of human breast milk, which naturally contains a higher concentration of whey protein and alpha-lactalbumin than bovine milk. Developing a purified alpha-lactalbumin ingredient allows for greater control in defining the protein profile and amino acid composition of an infant formula. One of the most important aspects of the amino acid profile of alpha-lactalbumin is its high tryptophan content, which is important for infant formula as well as many other nutritional applications, including sleep quality.
