Premium collagen peptides
Building on more than 80 years of experience with collagen production, Viscofan BioEngineering has developed a bovine collagen type I hydrolysate of exceptional quality that meets the demands of the global health food market. Produced with an advanced technology, our collagen peptides feature an optimal bioavailability profile and a per se low allergy potential along with easy processing properties.
We offer or collagen hydrolysate COLLinstant® on industrial-scale for a broad variety of applications, such as nutraceuticals, nutricosmetics or food supplements.
Collagen sustains tendons, skin and cartilage, thereby supporting integrity, firmness and elasticity of the musculoskeletal system. Descriptions of beneficial effects of collagen peptides (gelatin) on joint regeneration date back to the 12th century, documented by Hildegard von Bingen. Meanwhile, collagen peptides are commonly used as food supplements to support bone and joint health, e.g. in arthritic conditions.
With its optimal bioavailability, digestibility and low allergy features, COLLinstant® is predestined for nutraceutical use.
Collagen is an essential component of the skin that supports its flexibility, firmness and elasticity. As we age, the production of collagen slows down and collagen structure changes, adding to wrinkle formation. Food supplementation with collagen type I peptides is widespread to counter the effects of aging. COLLinstant® is neutral in oder, taste and color, well suited for a broad range of cosmetical applications.
Spiraling health care costs, aging populations and a global healthy lifestyle trend boost the worldwide demand of the food industry for collagen peptides. Hydrolized collagen has therefore become a universal ingredient of functional foods.
COLLinstant® is ideal for food processing, esp. with its good digestibility and easy processing features.
