Protica - Protein Twist Jelly Candy Grape - 1 oz. (29 g)
Protica Protein Twist Grape Jelly Protein Candy contains 15 grams and one full serving of fruit. Protica protein candy is indicated for a broad range of special medical needs. It is also used to support a healthy lifestyle. For health and exercise enthusiasts, Protein Twist conveniently provides 15 grams of protein, one full serving of fruit and zero fat in a soft, ready-to-eat candy weighing only one ounce.
For medical patients with special protein needs, Protein Twist provides critical nutrition. Protein Twist protein therapy is recommended for patients when high-density nutrition (i.e. maximum grams of protein per fluid ounce), low glycemic index, low allergen content, high bioavailability, or excellent palatability is a critical requirement. Oftentimes, patients with special dietary requirements have difficulty consuming protein because they cannot tolerate the taste, the volume, the protein allergens, or the protein structure (eg. large or denatured protein molecules). Protein Twist addresses these challenges by providing 15 grams of Actinase in a ready-to-eat form. Actinase is an all-natural protein compound with the following characteristics:
Actinase has a very neutral organoleptic profile (i.e. the characteristics related to the sense of taste and smell). Actinase also has a smooth texture. These features provide the foundation for the palatable flavors without the use of heavy flavorings or sweeteners.
To understand how and why Actinase is hypoallergenic, a brief explanation of hydrolization is required. Actinase undergoes a process called enzymatic hydrolysis. This process breaks protein molecules into smaller units called peptides. The average molecular weight of the peptides in Actinase is 1,400 daltons ("dalton" is the unit of measurement for atomic weight). The human body can readily digest and absorb peptides, which is why they are also used in infant formulas. A byproduct of the hydrolization process is that many of the allergens typically found in proteins are removed.
Actinase is easy to digest because the protein molecules are enzymatically hydrolyzed to form peptides (i.e. small protein molecules). Peptides are easier for the body to digest and assimilate.
The molecular structure of Actinase is extremely dense, making Protein Twist the most concentrated protein candy on the market. Protein Twist provides more protein per ounce than any other candy. This unique characteristic allows patients to consume ample amounts of protein in a very small fluid volume (eg. 15 grams of protein in one ounce).
