Did you know older adults need much more protein than younger adults to achieve the same rate of muscle growth? Maintaining muscle mass as we age is key for staying active and independent, and is one of the main considerations for ‘healthy ageing’. This webinar reviews the state of the science on protein for ageing, and looks at other emerging scientific evidence on plant-based diets, cognition, and more to find creative ways to address needs of healthy agers through product formulation.
Read a summary of the webinar from Nutrition Insight here: Can we age healthily without animal protein? Aging population presents high-protein NPD opportunity.
