GELITA is returning to the show floor at FIE/HIE 2021 in Frankfurt with solutions to enrich consumers’ daily nutrition routines. GELITA’s experts will 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, it also 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 others.
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®).
