Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein is a milk protein isolate enriched with micellar caseins: 90% compared to 80% in the original milk.
At LACTALIS Ingredients, we combine expertise, trust, and commitment to providing the best dairy ingredients. We were the first to explore the field of native proteins, perfecting a technique for the gentle extraction of dairy proteins directly from milk.
Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein is a pure and natural protein. It starts with quality fresh milk. Thanks to our cold filtration method, we can extract Pronativ® directly from milk with minimal processing, without adding additives or chemicals. This process keeps the protein in its purest form. It is in its native shape, and therefore very close to its natural structure in the milk. And because the process is not very denaturing, the nutritional value of Pronativ® – Native Micellar casein is intact.
Combining superior nutritional and functional properties, Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein is ideal to meet the unique needs of the nutrition industry and consumers. Whether they are looking to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle or to age in good health, Pronativ® can be used in a wide variety of products, such as ready-to-drink beverages and cream desserts.
As a producer of micellar casein, LACTALIS Ingredients offers a range of micellar casein isolate powders to best meet the specificities of your products:
Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein is extracted through a gentle process. It is minimally processed and offers excellent biological properties. Thanks to its slow digestion, it ensures a prolonged release of amino acids in the blood. It thus slows down the degradation of the muscle during periods of fasting and prevents sarcopenia. Rich in bioavailable micellar calcium, it also has a beneficial effect on bone health by preventing osteoporosis.
The micellar casein content of 90% compared to 80% in a conventional milk protein gives this protein interesting functional properties for the formulation of foods with low viscosity, high protein density, and neutral taste.
Main characteristics of Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein for clinical nutrition :
• High content of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA)
• Source of calcium
• Heat stable & low viscosity
• Neutral taste
• Microbiological quality suitable for clinical nutrition – low in thermophilic spores
Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein is a protein in its purest and most natural form. It is an ingredient designed for consumers who care about what they put in their bodies and want to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. Its neutral taste and low denaturant process allow for more natural active nutrition products without compromising on taste.
During periods of fasting, protein catabolism increases to maintain a healthy protein balance. Through its slow digestion, Pronativ® – Native Micellar Casein can provide amino acids over a long period, inhibiting muscle breakdown. It is therefore ideal taken at bedtime, for recovery after exercise at the end of the day.
