Food and fitness go hand in hand. Eating the right foods before a workout can help you train stronger for longer – and we all know that getting a good workout has endless benefits for your muscles and mood. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true: the wrong workout fuel can also be detrimental to your gym session.

So what exactly should you eat before a workout? While there a few ways to fuel the body, protein remains an important nutrient in an active lifestyle. Thanks to the latest from Danone, you never have to worry about fueling your passions again.

Protein-powered yoghurt

The new DanPro™ yoghurt and drinking yoghurt range from Danone is packed with 10g-20g of high-quality protein per serving, contains no artificial sweeteners, is available in low or medium fat, is thick and creamy and the perfect workout fuel. It provides the right balance of nutrients to keep you strong while you train.

DanPro™ is the only yoghurt with this quantity of protein and while it’s made to provide you with the required nutrients, it’s also delicious. DanPro™ comes in a variety of flavours and convenient formats, including Strawberry, Banana and Vanilla in the drinkable format; and Peach & Mango, Blueberry, Vanilla, Strawberry and Plain in the spoonable format.

“For over 15 years, Danone Southern Africa has been known for its high-quality dairy products for the whole family and now, with this new offering, we are providing even more options for consumers who understand the role of protein and its benefits for their body and lifestyle,” said Danone Innovations Marketing Manager Tarryn Haiden. “As more South Africans adopt healthier active lifestyles, we wanted to provide a product that would fuel their passions and help them to achieve their goals – whether that’s climbing a mountain, completing a marathon, or simply improving their daily endurance for a busy week.”

Made to fuel your passion

DanPro™ is any athlete’s new best friend! While carbs may be the most popular fuel for energy, protein helps with maintaining a strong body and with muscle recovery for those wanting to achieve their fitness goals. The protein in DanPro™ is also a source of all nine essential amino acids, which not only help build muscle, they also aid recovery.

Plus, if you have had a long endurance or resistance training session, DanPro™ Drinkable is ideal for you. It’s a convenient source of 20g protein, of which 69% is concentrated whey in the 300ml bottle – that’s the equivalent protein of three eggs. It’s currently the only yoghurt supported by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, with more protein than other yoghurts. Milk proteins, like those found in DanPro™, have been found to improve recovery from the muscle-damage that occurs during exercise. This drinkable yoghurt will help quench your thirst and alleviate some of the hunger pangs.

Boost your day

But DanPro™ isn’t just for athletes. It’s also a convenient option for busy people – easy enough to put in your lunchbox, drink in the car, throw in the gym bag or take with to the boardroom.

Ready for your first taste of protein power? DanPro™ is available in all leading grocery stores and convenience outlets from 8 July.
