How gelatin and collagen peptides enhance our daily food


GELITA is returning to the show floor at FIE/HIE 2021 in Frankfurt with solutions to enrich our daily nutrition routines. Visit The GELITA experts at booth 30F60 to discuss the advantages of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) in Sports Nutrition and how they can contribute to better recovery or gain insights on what gelatin can add technologically to your product to improve texture and mouthfeel while keeping the label clean.

Gelatin – natural, versatile powerful

Although gelatin is typically associated with gummies or other confectionery due to its irreplaceable thermo-reversible gelling behavior – the true potential of this amazing hydrocolloid goes way beyond this expected application. A must-have ingredient used in countless food applications, GELITA Gelatin has many functional properties which cannot be mimicked easily. It is an excellent binding, gelling and whipping agent; emulsifier and stabilizer; and, perfect film and foam former. It creates perfect textures, provides one-of-a-kind mouthfeel, enhances flavor release and more! And, as a pure protein – boosts a food’s nutritional profile, contributes to clean labeling and features no allergenic potential. Due to its diversity and versatility GELITA Gelatin is an ideal ingredient choice for confectionery, half-fat dairy products and many more!

BCP – supporting performance, health and recovery

Collagen continues to be one of the hottest ingredients for sports nutrition formulations. GELITA’s Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) will help keep performance athletes and weekend worriers healthy by addressing condition specific needs. Especially recovery is key. Professional athletes hardly recover completely between two competitions during the season and recreational athletes suffer from soreness for several days after a heavy session. This aspect of sports nutrition is clearly underestimated in current products but provides huge potential for new products to be developed.

GELITA’s BCP are clinically substantiated for:

• keeping ligaments and tendons healthy and flexible (TENDOFORTE)

• supporting joint health and mobility (FORTIGEL)

• improving bone mass density and supporting bone stability and flexibility (FORTIBONE)

• body toning and muscle strength (BODYBALANCE)

Live on Stage Attendees of the virtual show are also invited to attend the GELITA presentation “Fortified Gummies – Pleasure Meets Health” in the Exhibitor Showcase Theatre. On November 23, 11:00, Till Kinne, Technical Product manager Food, will discuss with you how vitamins, omega 3s or other active ingredients can easily be delivered to your body while at the same time pleasing your palate.
