Unique and pure peptides

ProGo® is highly soluble in water due to its low peptide molecular weight. This also gives the protein the fastest uptake of nitrogen compared to any protein, with more than 98 % digestibility. With its very low fat and ash content, ProGo® delivers pure peptides like no other protein on the market.

Characteristics

HBC’s proprietary enzymatic hydrolysis technology gently extracts the product from the raw material and creates a mix of over 500 peptides with numerous health benefits.

Sensory characteristics of ProGo® are unique with a mild taste of salmon, which can be completely masked by mixing with other proteins, natural sweeteners and flavours, as well as other masking agents. ProGo® is highly soluble in water due to its low peptide molecular weight.

Benefits

ProGo® corrects anemia and boosts nitrogen uptake. A clinical trial demonstrated increasing serum ferritin levels by 140 % in 42 days. Furthermore, ProGo® provides the fastest uptake of nitrogen compared to any protein, with more than 98 % digestibility.

ProGo® decreases BMI. Studies have shown a statistically significant decrease in BMI of –5.9 % in comparison to whey protein which showed a small (+1.6 %) increase in BMI. Further studies prove ProGo’s® positive effect on supporting metabolism and decreasing inflammation.

Applications

ProGo® can be used in healthcare products for the treatment of irondeficiency anaemia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and sarcopenia.
