High-protein Iced Tea for movers and shakers
Tea has been a drink of choice for centuries and is considered a healthy option among consumers due to its antioxidant properties. And, while iced tea itself has been popularised as a refreshing, healthy beverage, more and more products are now boasting superfood claims.
One way to boost the nutritional value and attraction of your iced tea beverage is by adding whey protein isolate into the mix. For product development teams however, the key to success is to maintain tea’s refreshing, clean taste while simultaneously delivering on the promise of a protein-rich beverage.
It’s well documented that whey protein isolate (WPI) helps build, repair and maintain muscle mass, supporting muscle protein synthesis better than other protein sources. WPI has been proven in protein shakes for decades and more recently, in high-protein ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. Arla Foods Ingredients offers three different, processing-stable WPI ingredients that meet the brief for a delicious and convenient protein iced tea – both for movers and shakers.
