Fonterra Whey Protein Quality Issue Does Not Affect Vitaco Customers
Following Fonterra’s announcement of contamination of its whey protein concentrate Vitaco Health Group, one of eight Fonterra customers potentially impacted, wishes to confirm that its customers are not affected.
Aussie Bodies UHT (ultra high temperature) sports drinks contained whey protein from one of the batches concerned. UHT is universally regarded as a commercial sterilisation process. These products have been processed at extremely high temperatures to deliver a safe, sterile product and therefore do not present a risk to customers.
Every batch of Aussie Bodies UHT product is produced under strictly controlled manufacturing conditions and is rigorously tested to ensure only safe product reaches its customers.
None of Vitaco’s Aussie Bodies sports nutrition protein powders or bars contain the affected whey protein concentrate.
