- Target number of participants300
- InterventionsDuration of intervention: 13 weeks with an optional extension period of 13 weeks.

1. Intervention group: All participants in the intervention group will receive daily two servings of the Active study product, which has a high protein content;
2. Control group: All participants in the control group will receive daily two servings of the (isocaloric) Control product.

Both products consist of about 40 grams of powder which has to be dissolved in 125 ml of water and are available in two flavors: vanilla and strawberry.

During the intervention period, subjects consume two servings per day. In the facultative extension period subjects are randomized into a group consuming one serving and a group consuming two servings per day.
- Primary outcome1. Muscle strength (hand dynamometry) during 13 weeks of intervention;
2. Physical Performance (test battery) during 13 weeks of intervention.
- Secondary outcome1. Physical activity (Questionnaire);
2. Appendicular muscle mass (DXA and BIA);
3. Health related quality of life (Questionnaire);
4. Independence of ADL (Questionnaire).
- Timepoints0, 7, 13, and 26 weeks.
