GELITA, the German-based gelatin supplier and leader in collagen peptide research and production, puts “Science on Your Side” through a robust body of scientific evidence.
Diverse Delivery Systems & Active Ingredients
In addition to featuring GELITA’s optimized and tailor-made gelatins for the world’s most popular delivery systems like gummies and hard- and soft-capsules, GELITA will showcase its latest innovations and scientific research in collagen peptide development. “Bioactive Collagen Peptides have considerable stimulation effects on the body’s collagen metabolism,” said company spokeswoman Lara Niemann. “Our commitment to extensive clinical research, optimized production processes and technical know-how puts GELITA far above the competition.”
Collagen: The Body’s Protein
Although not a new discovery, the human body’s protein is comprised of about 30% collagen—making collagen the most abundant protein in humans. This is exciting because of the advances in collagen peptide research as it relates to human physiology and the body’s collagen metabolism. Recent research studying GELITA’s Bioactive Collagen Peptides offer promise through collagen peptide supplementation with significant impact on musculoskeletal and skin health. In particular, the specific collagen peptides from GELITA are studied and proven to be useful in serious health issues related to aging, such as protein malnutrition (BODYBALANCE), joint or bone problems (FORTIGEL and FORTIBONE) and loss of skin vitality (VERISOL). With their special nutritional and technological properties, these pure proteins are enjoying increasing popularity in the food and dietary supplements market—and not just because they can be easily incorporated into diverse supplement and food applications.
As they are hydrolyzed to a certain extent, they can be readily absorbed by the body and are easily digestible as well as highly bioavailable. They are free from fat, cholesterol, carbohydrates, gluten and do not contain purines. Collagen peptides are non-allergenic and are suited for the development of clean label products. The bioactive collagen peptides can be used to develop innovative products such as beverages and shakes, bars, gels, powders, gummies and diverse fortified foods—all contributing to healthy nutrition. And these versatile collagen ingredients can bridge the gap between product categories such as food and cosmetics or food and pharma.
