Electric Recovery Results With DSM and ElectroPro

The number of products containing DSM Food Specialties’ successful casein hydrolysate PeptoPro® continues to escalate with the launch of Now Foods’ new endurance and recovery drink, ElectroPro™. Ideal for athletes or sportspeople wanting to achieve rapid recovery after intensive exercise, ElectroPro is an innovative and tasty electrolyte energy formula.

“We’re delighted that Now Foods has selected PeptoPro as the key ingredient in its new drink mix”, announced Reto Rieder, PeptoPro’s national accounts manager. “To date, it’s the biggest name in the US to launch a PeptoPro product. Because of its short chain peptides and unique water solubility, PeptoPro is easily incorporated into powder solutions. What’s more, unlike other peptides, PeptoPro does not leave a bitter aftertaste and is exceptionally clean and smooth. This makes it the perfect choice for powder manufacturers wanting to produce great products that work.”

Commenting on the launch, John Urban, General Manager, Sports Now Foods, remarked, “Here at Now Foods, we aim to produce the highest quality nutritional products that are both effective and tasty. That’s why we chose PeptoPro, which has been proven in recent trials and research to aid muscle recovery after workouts. ElectroPro combines this special mix of simple and complex carbohydrates, protein and electrolytes for effective post-exercise recovery.”

ElectroPro is available in 907g jars and comes in a refreshing orange flavor. One serving of 43g contains 7.5g of PeptoPro and can be consumed during and after exercise by mixing it with 250ml to 340ml of water or juice.
