GELITA will use this year’s virtual Natural Products Expo West event to discuss how GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® (BCP®) are ideal for sports nutrition supplements. Strong ligaments and tendons, bones, and joints, also identified as “white tissue,” are a vital precondition for this. BCP® support white tissue and thus, help to build stamina, strength, athletic agility as well as performance. 

Collagen continues to be highly sought after for sports nutrition formulations.  GELITA’s roster of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® help food and beverage formulators address condition-specific needs. GELITA’s ingredients are clinically substantiated for body toning and muscle strength (BODYBALANCE®); improving bone mass density and supporting bone stability and flexibility (FORTIBONE®); supporting joint health and mobility (FORTIGEL®); increasing the health and quality of ligaments and tendons (TENDOFORTE®). 

Delivery Systems
Also, sure to star are specific gelatins for softgel, hard-capsule or gummy delivery systems!  They are capable to define when and where in the body softgels open to release their fill, provide capsules with reduced cross-linking and longer shelf life, and allow palatable delivery systems in the form of fortified gummies! 

Softgels are a preferred delivery method for all kinds of nutrients and active ingredients. By choosing the right type of gelatin from the GELITA release profile portfolio you can modify the specific effect, timing, and duration of the fill release to tie in with consumer needs. The latest addition to its portfolio is GELITA® EC, the first and only gelatin product for true enteric performance of softcaps. 

GELITA’s line-up of gelatins that provide excellent fill release performance for soft capsules, including GELITA® RXL for reduced cross-linking and improved shelf stability; GELITA® RXL R2 for faster release of the active fill and custom-designed standard gelatins for optimum performance in hard and soft-capsules.  

And, with gummies emerging as a valuable player in the Health & Nutrition space, GELITA offers solutions and technical know-how for this delivery format including starch-free molding.
