Milk Specialties Global will highlight industry-changing proteins for bars and RTDs during IFT16 in Chicago

Industry leader to showcase game-changing high-protein inclusions, as well as lactose-free and organic ready-to-drink formulations

Milk Specialties Global, industry leaders in creating high-end organic milk protein and rBGH-free whey products, will showcase a number of game-changing dairy protein ingredients during this year’s IFT16, July 16 through 19 in Chicago. Attendees stopping by booth #4640 will sample a newer generation of ingredients for ready-to-drink (RTD) formulations as well as bars.

Recognized for its rBGH-free/hormone-free whey, organic milk and whey protein, as well as its lactose-free whey and milk protein, Milk Specialties Global’s technologists continue to raise the bar for proteins that will satisfy consumers’ insatiable demand for better nutrition, taste, mouth-feel and shelf life.

Four reasons why you’ll want to spend a lot of time at the Milk Specialties Global booth

1. Innovative high-protein extruded inclusions will forever change the bar category. As portable nutrition delivery systems, bars are growing in popularity here in the U.S. and gaining momentum in other westernized countries. Consumers love crisp inclusions in bars, but they are usually dead space nutritionally. Milk Specialties Global has developed great-tasting, high-protein extruded inclusions that will enable manufacturers to push up the protein number on bars’ nutrition labels.

“These flavorful protein-packed inclusions – including chocolate chip and graham – can be used in different bar types, from dessert quality bars to meal replacement,” comments Benoit Turpin, vice president of sales for Milk Specialties. “Our high-protein inclusions can generate an additional one to three grams of protein per serving, without increasing the serving size. That means that a standard 60 gram bar can contain as much as 21.2 grams of protein while still maintaining its fiber content.”

2. BARsoft highly functional dairy proteins address quality concerns and improve customers’ experience. Milk Specialties Global’s BARsoft dairy proteins are designed to provide a soft texture, optimal sensory experience, and extended shelf life in high-protein and nutrition bars. This soy-free line of ingredients is composed of whey and milk protein isolates to give superior nutrition and digestibility to your snack bar. It has excellent pliability and can last on the shelves for up to 12 months with significantly reduced browning and hardening. In an accelerated shelf life study, compared to an industry leading protein bar, BARsoft was found to be 33 percent softer after a 30-day trial. Milk Specialties Global has a BARsoft solution for all types of bars, baked or extruded style, and to fit your nutritional requirements. This is beneficial to bar manufacturers and bakers for extension of their products with a relatively short shelf life.

3. Hormone-free, organic, non-GMO milk proteins designed for cleaner RTD labels. Milk Specialties Global will be sampling a specialty organic chocolate milk protein concentrate for RTD formulations as well as a cappuccino RTD. The result is a creamier mouth feel and texture. “Our milk protein concentrate allows formulators to do away some of the stabilizers commonly found in RTD formulations. Having fewer ingredients is sure to result in bigger customer appeal,” says Turpin.

4. A lactose-free RTD formulation made with organic milk protein isolate. “We’re riding a trend of lactose-free and organic RTD formulations with superior quality, shelf-stable ingredients,” comments Turpin.
