WILD Flavors GmbH (WILD) is excited to announce the addition of RPM Factors to the Health Ingredient Technology & Solutions (H.I.T.S.) lineup.
In 2010 WILD and Sterling Technology, Inc. formed a partnership to bring bioactive milk peptide ingredients to the food and beverage industry. This partnership made WILD the exclusive provider of both Immunel for immune health and Tegricel for digestive health. RPM Factors for sports nutrition will now be included as the third functional ingredient from Sterling Technology offered exclusively through WILD.
RPM Factors is a bioactive whey protein concentrate. RPM (Repair, Performance, Mass) Factors provides a difference consumers can see and feel during athletic and exercise activities allowing them to train harder, recover faster and comeback stronger. Studies have suggested RPM Factors to: decrease recovery time, increase lean muscle mass and increase performance intensity. RPM Factors is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and had been Informed-Choice tested for banned substances. It is easily incorporated into food and beverage products with minimal impact on taste. The Associate Director of H.I.T.S., Heather Biehl explains: “We’re very pleased to be able to announce the availability of RPM Factors through our partnership with Sterling Technology. Differentiation of products in the sports nutrition industry gives WILD an essential advantage.
With Sterling Technology’s scientific expertise in bioactive milk peptide research, WILD will be able to utilize its skills to incorporate RPM Factors into efficacious, great tasting food and beverage products.” Derek Kjelden, Vice President of Sales at Sterling Technology, had the following to say on the agreement: “The partnership with WILD Flavors has proven to be successful with our Immunel and Tegricel ingredients in the food and beverage categories. Once RPM Factors was ready for the market, WILD was our first choice. They have the ability to take our innovative ingredients and formulate unique products without sacrificing any of the bioactive properties. We are anticipating many successful launches with RPM Factors in the upcoming months.”
WILD will be featuring RPM Factors in a sports drink at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) 2013 Expo in Chicago, July 14-16. Please visit the WILD booth #900 and stop by the H.I.T.S area to taste.
