Protein is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. It is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the “building blocks” for healthy bodies. Oak Zone offers high quality whey protein that is rich in branched chain amino acids isoleucine, leucine, and valine. It is used as a nutritional dairy ingredient, which combines superior nutrition, enhanced functionality, complete solubility, and neutral flavor. Whey protein provides many health benefits and helps rebuild and repair lean muscle tissue, manage weight, support the immune system, and improve the overall protein quality of infant formula.
- Whey Protein Isolate: BiPRO whey protein isolate (WPI) is the first of a new generation of dairy ingredients. BiPRO is a completely natural, unique dairy protein produced from pasteurized whey through proprietary selective ion exchange technology.
- Whey Protein: BioZate is a nutrionally complete protein source with rapid digestibility converted from ion-exchange purified whey protein. BioZate typically delivers 95% pure high quality protein. BioZate proteins can be incorporated into bars and sheeted or extruded snacks without introducing firm textures, and they can be blended with other proteins for optimal effect.
- Alpha-Lactalbumin: Alpha-lactalbumin is the primary protein in human milk, and is therefore extremely important for infant nutrition. The nutrient composition of human milk is the “gold standard” for infant formula development. Whey proteins are an ideal protein source to add to infant formulas to match the high concentration of whey proteins found in human milk and to take advantage of specific health benefits associated with specific whey proteins. Alpha-lactalbumin is a rich source of the amino acid tryptophan, which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter, serotonin. Serotonin has been shown to have a positive impact on mood, anxiety and stress control.
- Guar Gum Powder: We also offer guar gum powder that is one of the best natural thickening, emulsifying, and stabilizing additives and is used in bakery products, beverages, canned foods, confectionery, cheese, dairy products, gravies and soups, ice creams, ketchups, mayonnaise, noodles, and pharmaceuticals.
