May 9/May 2011 NutraSolutions “NutraNews”-- Zumbro River Brand has added a 70% milk protein crisp to its line of whey protein crisps. The crisps are made using a proprietary extrusion process and have the superior nutrition of milk protein, says the company. The texture and composition are ideal for a variety of novel


applications, including protein bars and cereals. Milk protein isolate is one of the purest forms of protein, according to the American Dietetic Association. It contains very little fat, carbohydrates or lactose and can be used as a daily supplement for those who do not consume the recommended amount of protein in their diet. MPI is a slow-release protein, which wards off hunger and aids in the maintenance of lean muscle--studies suggest it can be a low-calorie, low-sugar option for those looking to lose weight, increase metabolism or manage blood sugar.
