Protein Plus Milk will help to build immunity
Hyderabad, NFAPost: Creamline Dairy Products Limited (CDPL), a leading dairy player in Southern India and a subsidiary of Godrej Agrovet Limited, announced the launch of ‘Protein Plus’ Milk. With 30% more protein than regular toned milk, it is perfectly positioned to address the protein deficiency in India.
A research in 2019 (The Godrej Jersey South India Protein Gap Report) indicated, while 75% of respondents associate milk as an important source of protein, only 32% of the adults consume milk.
Also, while 54% of the adults in the survey were protein deficient; this deficiency increases to 62% amongst the vegetarians. Godrej Jersey aims to bridge the protein gap through this launch.
Speaking about the launch, Creamline Dairy Products Limited Chief Executive Officer Raj Kanwar Singh said milk is a natural source of protein and the launch of Protein Plus milk will help mothers to fulfil the dietary protein requirements.
“Along with higher protein content, Jersey Protein Plus is also fortified with Vitamins A & D, making its consumption suitable not only for growth and development of children but also for boosting immunity of the entire family,” said Creamline Dairy Products Limited Chief Executive Officer Raj Kanwar Singh.
Highlighting the importance of protein, Dr. Dharini Krishnan, a Doctorate in Science (PhD) and practising as a consultant dietician said, a protein-rich diet plays an important role in maintaining immunity as the Antibodies generated in the body to fight the infection are made up of protein.
“The protein acquired from dairy products like milk, curd and paneer, can help in generating White blood cells (WBCs) in larger quantities and also play a role in maintaining the energy levels throughout the day. Milk is a wholesome source of protein and about 400-500 ml of milk and milk products per family member per day is enough to yield its benefits,” said consultant dietician Dr. Dharini Krishnan.
