Whey-based protein powder for protein cookies
A new concept from Arla Foods Ingredients will help cookie manufacturers tap into the high-protein and healthy indulgence trends while overcoming technical challenges.
The number of sweet and savoury cookie launches in North America and Europe featuring protein claims has more than doubled in the last five years. However, producing indulgent but high-protein biscuits can come with processing and sensory challenges.Arla Foods Ingredients’ new Whey-Pro Biscuit concept features Nutrilac®, the company’s whey protein ingredient.
The concept was designed to create cookies with the right structure and appearance after baking, as well as low water activity for long-lasting crispness and low risk of microbiological spoilage. It helps overcome issues such as unpleasant aftertaste and unattractive appearance, and qualifies for a high-protein claim in the EU.
Lene Hald, Senior Category Manager, Bakery, at Arla Foods Ingredients, said in a press release: “High-protein and healthy indulgence are both important trends in the baked goods category. Biscuit manufacturers who tap into them have a great opportunity to grow their market share. Our new concept demonstrates that it’s definitely possible to combine a high-protein claim with an indulgent taste and texture, while overcoming technical challenges.”
