    The Launch of an Innovative Human Milk Oligosaccharide

    06 December 2016
    FrieslandCampina Domo has recently launched its latest high quality infant nutrition ingredients: Vivinal Milk Fat and Human Milk Oligosaccharides (2’-Fucosyllactose) to meet this need. 2’-FL is a breakthrough innovation for the infant formula industry. Godert Zijlstra of FrieslandCampina Domo says: “Human milk contains 200 or more complex sugar molecules. The most abundant one is 2’-FL, which is a very interesting recently researched compound in breast milk that we can now make available for the infant nutrition B2B ingredient market. It can stimulate the healthy growth of bifidobacteria and it has been heavily researched for its anti-bacterial and anti-viral effects, especially in the area of diarrhea prevention, which is a big risk in infants.”

Timing protein intake and overnight recovery crucial to sports performance

22 Sep 2017 --- Timing protein intake is a crucial part of a nutrition strategy aimed at maximizing the result of a training effort. FrieslandCampina DMV has learned this from research on elite athletes and that the importance of overnight recovery is underestimated. Test research insights on protein timing suggest that there is a window of opportunity for muscle recovery throughout the night. Protein for muscle protein synthesis, directly after exercise and before bedtime is an area of opportunity which FrieslandCampina is discussing with customers, in order to bring this research forward.

FrieslandCampina DMV presented Excellion Calcium Caseinate S “Overnight recovery protein” at HIE 2016. Studies show that casein ingestion prior to sleep increases muscle mass and strength. With Excellion Calcium Caseinate S, containing >90% casein protein, customers can create a neutral tasting Recovery drink with an excellent stability and mouthfeel enabling a release of amino acids in the bloodstream over 7 hours. Benno van Mersbergen of FrieslandCampina DMV explains: “Athletes commonly take a shake with whey protein after exercise, which is very effective in increasing muscle mass and the recovery of muscle. There is however one moment in the day that we found that everybody is lacking protein: during the night we don’t eat. Whey is fast processed in the diet, which is why it is very popular in recovery today.”
