Hydrolysed Collagen (Collagen Peptides)
Improving the supply of protein
Hydrolysed collagen (collagen peptides) – a unique bioactive protein – is used in many applications, from convenience foods such as soups and beverages – such as juices, dairy and water – to protein bars, anti-aging skin solutions and dietary supplements.
As leading Hydrolysed collagen peptides suppliers, Healan are also one of the UK’s main collagen powder suppliers. Collagen is both a protein and one of the most important components of our body. Abundant in connective tissue, ligaments and skin – it comprises up to 30 per cent of the human body’s total protein.
As such, food and nutritional supplements containing collagen are an ideal way to deliver and improve the supply of protein to the entire body.
More protein, less-fat alternative
More protein, less fat: these are the benefits that collagen brings to the production of meat products. Plus, thanks to its water-binding properties, collagen can contribute to more cost-effective production processes while improving the texture of the final products.
Whole collagen is broken down into collagen peptides through hydrolysis, so collagen peptides are frequently also referred to as hydrolysed peptides, or just hydrolysed collagen.
Healan are suppliers of bovine and marine hydrolysed collagen, which is easy to dissolve in drinks and smoothies, making it the perfect solution to gain the benefits of great skin elasticity.
