Product information about Ingredia's natural ingredient Lactium is available to download now
Lactium® is a milk protein hydrolysate which contains a bioactive decapeptide with soothing properties. This peptide, also called α-casozepine, is produced from the milk protein thanks to a “food grade” tryptic hydrolysis. Lactium® decreases anxiety-related symptoms and helps consumers better manage their emotional state, whether it is induced by occasional or everyday anxiety.
Long before it reached the market, Lactium® was the subject of numerous assessments on toxicity or side effect according to OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) guidelines and Good Laboratory Practices. These demonstrated that Lactium® presents no health risks at the recommended doses: no undesirable side-effects, no acute or chronic toxity, no memory loss, no habituation, no addiction, no sedation, no disinhibition.
In April 2020, US FDA authorized 7 claims for Lactium®. The dietary supplements manufacturers featuring Lactium® in their products for adults will be able to communicate on the benefits of this unique bioactive.
As a natural ingredient, Lactium® can safely be used by the whole family.
