Lactalis enters post-workout recovery category
The US post workout category is expanding with the addition of two products from French dairy giant Lactalis.
The company’s UP2U RECOVER protein drinks and UP2U RECOVER unflavored protein powder are designed for fitness enthusiasts and athletes.
The products contain Lactalis’ PRONATIV native whey protein which provides purity and potency, which the company said appeals to fitness devotees looking for higher quality performance.
UP2U RECOVER flavored protein drinks feature a formula of fast absorbing protein, carbohydrates, and electrolytes, stimulating muscle recovery within 30 minutes after physical exercise.
The product is lactose free and easy to digest, Lactalis said.
Meanwhile, UP2U RECOVER unflavored powder protein consists of 17 grams of protein, 70 calories and zero carbohydrates powder and can be added to other foods and drinks.
“UP2U RECOVER is backed by our legacy and leadership in dairy products,” said Jean-Luc Bruandet, president and chief executive officer, Lactalis American Group.
“Consumers can use UP2U RECOVER products to help embrace a healthy lifestyle, balancing fitness needs and hectic daily life, as they offer a fast, optimized recovery using clean, minimally processed ingredients for those looking to be fit, active and take care of their bodies.”
