Alpha-lactalbumin is a specialist whey protein fraction rich in cysteine, which can play an important role in enhancing oxidative capacity during exercise. This favourably influences time to fatigue and performance. Furthermore, alpha contains a higher level of tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin, which can improve relaxation and sleep.
Our Lacprodan® alpha ingredients can be applied in a number of applications, including clear UHT beverages, bars and other food solutions.
