Cornelius and Agropur bring ultimate clean protein to market

(Posted on 17/08/16)

Cornelius Group has partnered with international food ingredients company, Agropur, to supply the purest whey protein supplement available on the market today.

BiPRO® (Whey protein Isolate), manufactured by Agropur, contains 97 per cent protein - two per cent more than competitive protein products currently available.

BiPRO® comes in standard or intantised with sunflower lecithin form that contains zero carbohydrates, sugars and less than two per cent fat. It also contains high levels of leucine (2.6g/20g serving) which scientific studies have revealed is the key amino acid involved in muscle protein synthesis.

Laura Rehne, business development manager (sports nutrition), said: “Consumers, particularly those concerned with sport, health and nutrition, are increasingly looking for products which are high quality and don’t contain unnecessary additives or ingredients. BiPRO® contains 97 per cent protein and there is nothing on the market that can match that. It is the purest whey protein available, eating clean has been a key topic for many consumers concerned about what they are putting in their bodies. BiPRO® is the cleanest WPI in these terms which makes it the ultimate protein for consumers.

In order to achieve the highest protein content, Agropur has incorporated proprietary selective ion-exchange technology. The unique process selects the primary functional and nutritional proteins from dairy.

BiPRO® is a high quality, complete protein that delivers all of the essential amino acids needed by the human body, without carbohydrates and fat. The supplement is also ideal for consumers who are lactose intolerant.

BiPRO® is manufactured exclusively by Agropur which has sold the ingredient to industrial customers for more than 30 years. The company was founded in 1943 and processes 11 million pounds of milk per day to make whey and cheese products. A pioneer in whey protein isolate research, Agropur produces over 10 million pounds of whey protein isolates annually, accounting for 65 per cent of whey protein isolates sold worldwide.
