Maximuscle gets a rebrand

Sports nutrition brand Maximuscle, part of GSK, has been renamed Maxinutrition as part of a long term strategy to broaden the relevance and appeal of protein. The traditional Maximuscle products will be rebranded and divided into four ranges: Recover and Rebuild; Mass and Size; Strength and Power; and Lean Definition. The rebrand is supported by a consumer campaign, feedyourmuscles, which uses real people to demonstrate the difference protein makes to them when they exercise.

Bare Naked nutrition

Bare Naked Foods has introduced protein noodles to extend its range of low carb, gluten-free products for weight management and fitness training. Available for gyms to retail and serve in their cafes, the Bare Naked Protein Noodles contain 16 calories per 100g, and are made using the Asian-grown Konjac plant. “Protein Noodles from Bare Naked Foods are for fitness enthusiasts and athletes to increase their protein intake whilst keeping an eye on the carb content”, said Ross Mendham, managing director of Bare Naked Foods. “However, protein is also crucial for those people looking to lose weight. The fewer calories a person consumes, the more calories should come from protein to prevent the body from consuming muscle mass for energy.”

Have your seconds First

Protein First has developed a range of protein ice creams with help from food industry experts and Teesside University. The ice creams are fortified with vitamins and minerals and are available in three flavours, French Vanilla, Wild Strawberry and Chocolate Hazelnut. Graham Woods, managing director of Protein First said: “The whey protein isolate in our ice cream is an excellent source of all the essential amino acids and the richest source of branched chain amino acids,?which are particularly important for muscle protein synthesis and ensure it is rapidly digested and absorbed by the body, making our ice cream the ideal protein supplement post exercise.”

Hyperice launches Ice Compression Technology

Hyperice USA has created a two-part system for treatment of sports injuries. Available for gyms to retail, the Hyperice device is composed of an ‘Ice Cell’ and a ‘Compression Wrap’, that work together to combine compression and cold therapy. Ice is loaded into the cell and as it melts, pockets of air build up, creating a barrier between the ice and the compression wrap. The compression wrap maintains pressure on the ice and forms a cast around the injured areas. There are five Hyperice products in the range: Utility, Shoulder, Extended Shoulder, Knee and Back. Hyperice is represented in the UK by Solutions for Sport.
