DSM’s PeptoPro 'adds competitive edge to PowerBar'

10 June 2011

PowerBar has launched Isomax, a high-performance isotonic beverage powder for serious endurance athletes that contains DSM’s PeptoPro

The new formula contains functional ingredients including a unique mix of five electrolytes, caffeine and C2MAX, a carbohydrate blend designed for maximum energy delivery.

The inclusion of PeptoPro facilitates efficient amino acid delivery during intense physical exercise, when the body’s digestive capacity is heavily compromised. The new formula combines optimal functionality with great taste and ease of preparation.

A highly advanced peptide formulation derived from dairy protein, PeptoPro provides amino acids in a form that does not require further digestion and can be delivered straight to the muscles. This instant delivery of amino acids protects the muscles during exercise and kick-starts the recovery process.

Sufficient amino acid intake is important after exercise as there is a limited timeframe, known as the post-exercise ‘window of opportunity’, before the muscle cells’ capacity for nutrient absorption slows down.

PeptoPro works in synergy with carbohydrate to efficiently repair the muscles and help replenish glycogen stores by boosting post-exercise insulin levels. In trials, PeptoPro has been shown to improve endurance and performance, stimulate muscle growth, accelerate recovery and reduce muscle soreness.

PeptoPro is completely and instantly soluble in cold water and is available in forms suitable for use in a variety of sports nutrition products. Jacob Bauly, Market Development Manager Europe, Africa, Middle East, DSM Nutritional Products Europe, commented: “We are excited about the launch of this new product containing PeptoPro.

PowerBar is a world-leading brand in sports nutrition and our latest collaboration exemplifies DSM’s steadfast commitment to global nutrition excellence. We continue to leverage our scientific knowledge to help manufacturers formulate innovative nutritional solutions for this competitive industry.”
