The boundaries of the traditional “sports nutrition” marketplace have extended well beyond the confines of the gym or track, and into all aspects of active performance. From consumers who are simply looking to get healthier, to vegetarians interested in alternative protein options, and into trained athletes with goals around performance and muscle building, the market continues to expand, offering companies a prime opportunity to grow their portfolio.

When it comes to function and reason for use, sports nutrition products run the gamut, addressing pre-, during and post-activity nutritional needs. Consider the continued growth of the energy sub-category, which has gone far beyond simple caffeinated drinks into ingredients and formulas that enhance endogenous energy production and even support mental focus and clarity. During exercise, the right combination of nutrients can fuel longer performance. And don’t forget the increased interest in recovery formulas, bolstered with protein, designed to address oxidative stress markers and even enhance sleep quality to ensure the body can optimise its own physiologic responses. Get more insights on the ingredients for a well-rounded sports nutrition portfolio, and how to take advantage of a market with an expanding consumer base.

Now that we have mastered the challenges of plant protein formulation, the possibilities are endless.
