Bovine Collagen Peptides: Collagens are the most abundant high molecular weight proteins in both invertebrate and vertebrate organisms, including mammals, and possess mainly a structural role. Because of its unique properties, Bovine Collagen has been elected as a key biological material in tissue regeneration approach for nutritional products.
Bovine Collagen Peptide is an odorless white powder. It has a neutral taste and dissolves easily in room-temperature water and liquids. Bovine Collagen consists mainly of type 1 and type 3 collagen, two types of collagen that play a major role in the growth and repair of bones, tendons, ligaments, and skin.
It is a natural product with 94+ percent protein (on a dry weight basis); it contains 20 amino acids (9 of which are essential amino acids).
Bovine Collagen Peptide is primarily composed of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline (which account for approximately one-half of its total amino acid content).
This unique ratio of amino acids gives Bovine Collagen Peptides specific properties that are not found in other protein sources:
- Stable against food acids
- Neutral taste
- Excellent solubility
