Recover Quicker with Great Tasting Hydrovon

Whey protein comes in a number of forms, including hydrolysed. Hydrolysed Whey Protein is considered to be one of the more advanced whey protein versions available.  This form of whey protein has had some of its amino acid peptide bonds broken enzymatically into shorter chains of Peptides and Polypeptides. This leads to faster absorption when consumed.  Unfortunately, it has also meant athletes have had to contend with the bitter taste created by the breaking of peptide bonds.  The days of accepting poor flavour are past.

 

Today's committed athletes consider their nutritional intake more extensively and seek products that help them improve performance - while expecting those products to taste good. Faster absorption of protein leads to quicker recovery from strenuous efforts and this makes it an extremely attractive offering to the Multi-Sport athlete - an emerging market sector, as witnessed in the rapid increase in popularity for Multi-Sport events such as triathlons, duathlons, Tough Mudder and Cross Fit.

 

To meet this growing demand Glanbia have created Hydrovon which is an instantized partially hydrolysed whey protein isolate. This product is a next generation WPI developed by Glanbia Nutritionals using its own proprietary technology. The most notable benefit of this technology is that taste of the resulting proteins and peptides is exceptional.  This key material benefit strongly differentiates the Hydrovon offering from other bitter tasting conventional Hydrolysed Whey Proteins.

 

Hydrovon's rapid absorption, combined with its great taste, makes it the ideal protein for athletes that seek to accelerate recovery and enhance muscle repair immediately post activity.
