Form and Function

Throughout Asia, the popularity of collagen rivals that of multivitamins, and it plays a starring role in the formulations of a variety of functional foods, beverages and dietary supplements. Collagen peptides offer an excellent range of individual health benefits, providing product developers with the perfect solution to serve multiple needs for health and wellness solutions. They can easily be incorporated into nutritional supplements and functional foods and are suitable for a wide range of applications from bars to beverages.

Collagen Applications

Collagen food products, common in Japan and throughout Asia, include coffee lattes, candies, chews, jellies, puddings and marshmallows, to name just a few, and are used in liquid, solid or powder applications. Nippi Collagen does not form a gel and dissolves easily in cold water, even at relatively high concentrations. As a highly bioavailable protein with a neutral odor and taste, collagen peptides provide exceptional solubility and instant dispersibility, and rarely interact with other ingredients.

Delivery applications include:

  • Capsules, tablets, orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs), fast melts
  • Powder blends and applications
  • Chews, gummies, chocolate, jellies
  • Functional foods – nutritional bars, yogurts, puddings
