Whey protein is being incorporated into a number of products, such as oatmeal and snack bars, and it can bring various health related benefits, including minimizing the loss of muscle mass. This is of obvious interest to active, healthy people but it is also relevant to seniors who may experience losses in body mass and strength.
Industry consolidation has been a significant feature of the sports nutrition industry over the past few years. This activity has included GSK's purchase of Maxinutrition, Abbott's acquisition of EAS, Glanbia's purchase of BSN and also the Carlyle Group's $3.8bn capture of NBTY, the maker of Nature's Bounty, MET-Rx and Solgar supplements.
