Tnuva launched Milk V for children. With double the calcium content (said to be the highest level in the Israeli market) and increased levels of vitamin D, Milk V relies on the CapsuDar vitamin D solution provided by LycoRed, which was involved in the development of the product. Milk V has 1.5 grams of daily vitamin D in one serving. A glass of Milk V contains 400 mg calcium (at least 30% of the DRI) as well as the increased vitamin D. This customized formulation of vitamin D is structured for pasteurizing and performs well under a wide range of pH. LycoRed uses exclusive technologies to ensure highly stable vitamin D formulations.
“CapsuDar vitamin D is highly stable in high temperatures, making it a perfect choice for many food applications,” explains Udi Alroy, V.P. Global Marketing and Sales at LycoRed. “The major challenge in dairy fortification is to stabilize minerals and vitamins during the homogenization and pasteurizing processes. The result is an active ingredient, stable across a wider pH range that works well with pasteurized products and with a significantly longer shelf life.”
“LycoRed specializes in fortification solutions for dairy products,” said Alroy. “Manufacturers can’t afford to risk negatively impacting taste or aroma when they fortify their products. Our fortification capabilities allow us to combine ingredients without cross-interaction, creating a more neutral flavor profile demanded by functional foods. Consumers are looking for easy, tasty and healthy products. LycoRed was proud to help Tnuva to meet this challenge.”
