  • Agropur’s Glycomacropeptide (GMP) is described as a casein-derived protein fraction with superior purity. Agropur says it has developed a unique process by which a purified form of glycomacropeptide is isolated from the whey after cheesemaking. The result is a light colored, mild-tasting, free flowing powder ideal for usage in both functional foods and beverages, dietary supplements and pharmaceutical applications. There is no similar ingredient with such high purity, commercially available in the marketplace, the company says, as it contains 95 percent of total protein in the form of GMP. The high purity is critical to applications such as Phenylketonuria (PKU), where no alternative source of protein exists.
