LAFAYETTE HILL, Pa., Jan 19, 2006 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Protica, Inc. today announced the introduction of Profect(R), the world's first capsulized protein beverage. Patients with special medical needs, as well as dieters, health enthusiasts, and even snack food addicts can benefit from the 25-gram dose of hypoallergenic protein Profect delivers in its compact, ready-to-drink vial- shaped container.
Profect is a beverage containing 25 grams of protein, zero carbohydrates, zero fat and the complete spectrum of water-soluble vitamins. Profect weighs only 2.9 fluid ounces, and is packaged in a virtually unbreakable, vial-shaped container (patent pending). Profect can be consumed in less than five seconds.
In a day when diet choices seem endless -- low-carb, low-fat, isometric -- Profect offers the one common denominator: protein.
"Instead of just replacing a meal, Profect complements it. We developed Profect to quickly supply your body with the protein and vitamins missing from any meal or snack, particularly those high in carbohydrates or fats. Profect also helps the body naturally reduce fat storage, increase nutrient utilization, and accelerate metabolism," said Jim Duffy, President of Protica.
Actinase(R), the patent-pending, 25-gram protein complex in Profect, is a natural, hypoallergenic, enzymatically-hydrolyzed formula. Actinase contains all the essential amino acids and 100% heat-stable, short-chain peptide proteins (average molecular weight: 1,400 daltons).
"Profect represents a large step forward in the field of protein technologies. For patients with special medical needs, it means they can meet their protein requirements when high-density nutrition (i.e. maximum grams of protein per fluid ounce), low allergen content, low glycemic index, high bioavailability, or excellent palatability is a critical requirement. For consumers, it means they can feel better about the 'bad' foods they occasionally eat, such as fast foods or snacks," says Duffy. "Profect can also be taken by itself to fortify the body before or after physical activity, or to curb hunger between meals."
Profect is recommended for men and women, from teens to seniors, regardless of activity level or fitness goals.
Profect is certified Heart Friendly(R) by the Food Certification Institute(R).
