Source is everything
Claus is in no doubt about the most important lesson he learned when working on the recipes. “It makes the world of difference to choose the right protein source – it’s really critical. It’s not so much the kind of raw material you use, because usually, that’s some form of whey protein, but about working together with the protein supplier to get the right protein product.”.
“We found it quite hard in the beginning because we were using standard high-protein milk or whey powders and the end results weren’t great. They were watery, or sandy, or just not very nice to eat. The stability of the product over shelf-life wasn’t good either. We realised it wasn’t working so we took a bit of a break, then we spoke to two specialist protein powder manufacturers, and they both had the right solutions which made all the difference. You’re relying heavily on the supplier to make the right adjustments, so you really need to find one with the expertise to know what’s going to work.”
