In weight management programs, consuming a balanced diet is important. Less known is that proteins also have a higher satiating effect, which means people tend to eat less of it and therefore have an even lower calorie intake. Proteins also help prevent the loss of muscle mass, which is particularly important for groups like the elderly or chronically ill. These nutritional facts were the driving forces behind Darling Ingredients’ Food Reformulation program in collaboration with NIZO Food Research, with a goal to reduce fat content in food products by up to 25% while retaining the desirable sensory properties of fats (i.e., its smoothness, juiciness).
SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE FOOD INGREDIENTS,
As population growth continues to rise, so does the demand for proteins. Value added proteins from animal by-products reduce the pressure on other protein sources.
WITH BETTER NUTRITIONAL PROFILES,
We encourage a lower calorie intake and help the aging population remain active.
THAT HELP PEOPLE STAY HEALTHY AND MOBILE.
Helping consumers meet their dietary and culinary needs using healthier products, we contribute to reducing the pressure on healthcare services.
“WE ARE INVESTIGATING PROTEINS IN THEIR BROADEST SENSE TO OFFER THE MARKETS MORE POSSIBILITIES TO BENEFIT FROM ANIMAL PROTEINS”
