MBP® – The latest ingredient for a healthy, competitive edge

MBP® is a proven, emerging ingredient with easy commercial applications for bone health products.

Consumer confidence

It’s natural and it works. MBP® is a functionally active protein complex extracted from natural bovine milk. It is the only known protein that works on both osteoblast (bone-forming cells) and osteoclast (bone-destroying cells). It aids the body’s ability to regulate the natural breakdown of old bone, and then promote the formation of new bone. A number of clinical studies prove this.

Possible Commercial Applications

MBP® is a unique ingredient with great commercial potential as a high-quality, value-adding product that can be easily added to a number of consumables: food, beverage and supplements intended for the promotion of strong and healthy bones.
