Arla Foods Ingredients has capitalised on fibre and whey protein to develop a pre-meal drink concept designed to improve blood sugar levels.

When the company’s founders heard that The World Health Organisation ranked high blood sugar third in the top 10 of risk factors linked to 33 per cent of deaths worldwide, they wanted to do something about it.

The clinical evidence was mounting up: whey proteins could help improve lower a person's blood sugar, so they set up about designing a product utilising this ingredient.

They developed a small drink prototype containing fibre and a high level of whey protein, called the pre-meal Lacprodan whey protein shot.

The pre-meal shot application of 100ml provides 15g of Lacprodan whey protein, and more than 3g of fibres, combining the effects of ingesting whey protein and non-digestible fibres for blood glucose control.

According to Arla Foods Ingredients, the product induces a lower blood glucose rise after consumption; is high in protein, fibre, calcium and a source of phosphorous.
