Glycomacropeptide (GMP)

Glycomacropeptide (GMP) is a bioactive whey protein with superior purity. Agropur has developed a unique process by which a purified form of glycomacropeptide is isolated from the whey after cheesemaking. The result is a light colored, mild tasting, free-flowing powder ideal for usage in both functional foods and beverages, and dietary supplements.

Application

  • Beverages
  • Weight management
  • Nutritional bars
  • Oral care products
  • Dietary supplements
  • Medical foods (PKU)

GMP differs from other whey proteins in its amino acid profile. A pure molecule of GMP is completely devoid of aromatic amino acids and Agropur’s GMP has very low levels of these aromatic amino acids. GMP also has relatively high amounts of branched chain amino acids, especially isoleucine and valine. The combination of low aromatic amino acids and high BCAAs allows GMP to be an ideal ingredient in nutritional formulations for people suffering from hepatic diseases. The low level of phenylalanine in Agropur’s GMP also makes it a highly desirable nitrogen source in the special diets formulated for phenylketoneuria patients.
