“More and more active consumers are discovering the benefits of using sports nutrition products to help them optimise their workout programmes. This means the category is quickly becoming mainstream. Our new range of whey protein hydrolysates offers a straightforward way for brands to create differentiated products that deliver the benefits these consumers want”, Peter Schouw Andersen, Head of Science & Sales Development at Arla Foods Ingredients, says.

According to Euromonitor, the global sports nutrition market will be worth $17.5 billion in 2020, compared with $10.8 billion 2015 and $6.7 billion in 2010.
