Congress organized by the European Society of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism is an event where scientists and health care professionals can meet and discuss cutting edge science on medical nutrition.
FrieslandCampina Ingredients was represented by Marieke Schoemaker, Senior Nutritionist and Sjors Verlaan, Research and Discovery Manager for Adult Nutrition, who presented recent experiments and human study conducted with our ingredient Resana Activating Protein.
Resana is an exclusive protein product that has been developed to enable very high protein concentrations in (medical) nutrition drinks. In lab experiments with an in vitro stomach digestion model we demonstrated limited coagulation of Resana protein, which may facilitate fast digestion. In the following human clinical RAP study, consumption of Resana protein by older volunteers resulted in a fast and sustained amino acid profile in blood. That could bring positive effects on muscle protein synthesis, contributing to improved patients outcome.
The combination of its nutritional, sensory and processing profile makes it an ideal ingredient for new products addressing the Compacting trend in Medical Nutrition liquid applications.
