PROTHY® R80 & Health claims

11:04 2011

The alarming increase in allergy problems in infants forced key players in infant nutrition to turn to new hypoallergenic nutritional sources. Tournay Biotechnologies’ Partially Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, PROTHY ® R80, fully addresses this demand and is currently experiencing a high popularity in this market. With its technical expertise in extraction process, enzymatic hydrolysis or drying, Tournay Biotechnologies now offers an improved ingredient that is completely soluble, stable and neutral in terms of flavor. These much demanded characteristics , along with the fact that PROTHY R80 is a totally natural source of hypoallergenic high quality protein, allow this ingredient to be used in many more applications destined to adults and seniors. Indeed, with a market for hypoallergenic products set to soar to unprecedented heights, offering a source of vegetable, hypoallergenic and highly bio available proteins is crucial to any food maker. PROTHY® R80 will help developers to address all these issues at once.


Compliant with latest EU health authorities decisions and food market demands, Tournay Biotechnologies is now able to offer various blends of natural extracts that fully meet the expectations of industrial food processing and nutraceuticals in terms of nutrition and health, while benefiting from future health claims. For example, the EFSA friendly Brain BoosterTM: a proprietary combination of guarana, green tea, green coffee, and sea water extracts that can claim to improve mental and cognitive performance, reduced feelings of fatigue and resistance to stress.
These “turnkey” blends will allow industry players to benefit from the too few health claims granted by the EU authorities while retaining the possibility to advertise on more than a single ingredient, differentiating from competitors.
