Bioactive ingredients to assist with the prevention of COVID-19!


The continuing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) throughout the world is leading to an increasingly anxious public in terms of health. More than ever, people are aware of the importance of protecting their health and preventing illness. They are looking for brands and products they can trust, that will promote good health.

Adding bioactive ingredients derived from milk to foodstuffs is a method of promoting good health and well-being, not just in light of the current COVID situation, but generally. People tend to live longer these days, so looking after our long-term health should be a priority.

Ingredia has spent several years developing three dairy-based bioactive ingredients that can facilitate the development of immune-boosting, anti-stress and prediabetes food products.
Each of these ingredients has a role in promoting better health during and beyond COVID that can be used in various applications to help boost the immune system:
  • Lactium: this is a natural bioactive ingredient that can be used to alleviate stress and promote a sense of calm.
  • Pep2Dia: a milk-protein that can help pre-diabetic people reduce their blood sugar level and prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
  • Proferrin: to boost the immune system and also help it to return to normal after an infection.


While the pandemic has been a shock that has rocked our personal and professional world, it has made us aware of the importance of protecting our health and the health of our loved ones.
