GELITA will use this year’s SupplySide West exhibition to demonstrate how GELITA® gelatin and collagen peptides are integral components for countless nutritional supplements, functional foods and more.

GELITA, SupplySide Booth #MM151, supplies collagen peptides with proven body-stimulating capabilities, tailor-made gelatins and non- or partly- water soluble collagens. This holistic range of products—in combination with the company’s vast experience in developing solutions for different applications—makes GELITA a first choice for its customers.

In today’s landscape of highest consumer demands, manufacturers of food products have to rely on natural, healthy, non-allergenic ingredients for their developments. Collagen proteins from GELITA are the perfect match for this as they fulfill all of these requirements. This is a particular plus when considering the fact that they are foodstuffs in their own right (e.g. no E-number). They also possess a set of unique technical and physiological properties. 

Besides the traditional use of collagen proteins as natural stabilizers and emulsifiers for countless products, they enable manufacturers to provide their products with other properties that are becoming more and more important. GELITA has intensified its research in developing solutions for physical mobility, body toning and beauty from within.

GELITA’s scientifically substantiated Bioactive Collagen Peptides® enhance health and nutrition products while offering ease of formulation. And, if processors are looking for gelatine delivery systems, GELITA is a pioneer in developing customized gelatines. Here, GELITA offers solutions for hard and soft capsules from enteric release profiles to rapidly releasing systems – and everything in between. 

GELITA’s Bioactive Collagen Peptides® and Gelatines are vitually odorless and neutral tasting – and to prove it, the company will offer samples of exciting product prototypes! As pure and non-allergenic proteins, GELITA’s ingredients support modern market trends and consumer demands for protein enrichment and clean labeling.
