More and more health conscious consumers are looking for protein on the go. No longer a niche market, Sports Nutrition has become mainstream.
At Quadra we have a great toolbox of ingredients to create sports nutrition products with benefits. We have a full line of proteins: Dairy-Based (WPI & WPC, MPI & MPC), soy, rice, pea, wheat and more. We carry a range of functional ingredients offering a specific health benefit: heart health, immune health, or cognitive health.
Partnering with Lonza we offer Carnipure®, which plays a critical role in metabolism, having a wide variety of benefits, energy & muscle recovery, weight management, cardiovascular health and more.
Beneo’s Palatinose™ is a naturally sourced smart sugar, that provides full carbohydrate energy (4kcal/g) in a more balanced way, resulting in a low glycemic effect. It helps to improve fat oxidation during physical activity leading to prolonged energy supply. Also, it is the first non-cariogenic sugar, making it kind to teeth.
Extensive research in the area of sports nutrition shows that ingredients which help maintain immune health are critical in optimizing performance. We proudly offer well studied, scientifically backed ingredients to address this concern. Kerry (formerly Biothera) offers Wellmune®, a bakers yeast beta glucan, which is clinically proven to maintain health in particular in times of intense physical demand. Lonza also offers Resistaid®, which is a Larch Arabinogalactan, which is clinically proven to have a positive benefit on the immune system.
