Foods Enriched With Company’s Protein Ingredient Improve Health Profile Of Elderly

September 15, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
New Zealand dairy company Fonterra says studies it sponsored show that elderly people can improve their health easily – and avoid frailty – by eating protein-enriched foods. In the two studies, conducted in a hospital and an orthopedic rehab center, patients who consumed yogurt drinks and bread enriched with a Fonterra dairy protein upped their daily intake of protein significantly without drastically changing their eating habits. Fonterra said its protein ingredient ”does not change the sensory profile” of the foods and so is easily incorporated into the diet. After three days in one study, the 22 patients who ate high-protein diets were consuming about 75 grams of protein a day, compared to 58 grams for those on the regular diet.
