Here are the studies that have shown NUTRALYS® health benefits so far.

When consumers opt for plant-based proteins, they’re thinking about more than sustainability. From sports nutrition to disease management, individual health needs may vary as much as the people who buy your foods. But their specialized needs are steering market trends.

That’s why NUTRALYS® has the science to back up a variety of health claims for a variety of important demographics.

For more than a decade, Roquette scientists have designed clinical studies, working with independent third parties to test NUTRALYS® ingredients against specific health concerns and publishing the results in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Studies are showing NUTRALYS® can help with health goals as diverse as weight management, muscle development, elder care and blood glucose management.

Here are our findings so far, with links to published papers.
