Functional & nutritional proteins
Rooted in the world of dairy, Ingredia was able to successfully promote a whole range of functional and nutritional milk proteins. These unique proteins demonstrate their full potential in food (PROMILK ®) and nutrition (PRODIET®).
Micellar caseins are milk proteins naturally rich in casein and micellar calcium. They are particularly relevant for nutrition markets and cheese manufacturing.
Total milk proteins are highly versatile proteins thanks to a balanced nutritional profile and outstanding functional properties.
Native whey proteins are directly derived from milk through a mechanical action. Under their native format, these soluble proteins are highly functional, and their nutritional profile remains untouched.
Protein hydrolysates benefit from an optimal protein composition, whether they come from caseins or whey. Their nutritional properties make them particularly attractive for clinical, infant* and sports nutrition.

Process adaptation, protein profile optimization, and high protein content are just some of the innovation subjects that Ingredia explored to address its customers’ needs.
Convinced that the future is focused on total transparency, from farms to finished products, Ingredia goes further in its CSR approach by ensuring full traceability and real-time auditing of its milk proteins, using the blockchain system.
In order to meet market expectations for more responsible and better quality consumption, Ingredia offers a range of ingredients 100% Hauts-de-France origin, from cows fed without GMOs which have grazed at least 170 days on a minimum grazing area guarantee of 1500m² per cow.
Thanks to blockchain technology, the milk collection is traced and its specifications audited in real time.
Thus, consumers and industrials have access to all the information on the ingredients that go into the recipe of their finished products with the help of dynamic QR codes printed directly on the packaging.
