GELITA: a pioneer in collagen proteins


And the official collagen protein sponsor of Supplyside West

GELITA returns to Las Vegas and Supplyside West once again as the official collagen protein sponsor to showcase its latest collagen innovations and scientific findings for the nutritional supplement industry.

With much attention on the sports nutrition arena, GELITA’s roster of Bioactive Collagen Peptides will be the stars of the show. TENDOFORTE - GELITA’s latest collagen peptide brand – offers specific and optimised collagen peptides proven to strengthen tendons and ligaments.

With its unique mode of action, this clean label ingredient is especially suitable for the booming sports nutrition market. GELITA will also present the latest scientific research on FORTIBONE, which underlines the ingredient’s potential to significantly increase bone mineral density.

Finally, manufacturers of soft gelatin capsules will be able to see first-hand the complete spectrum of capsule fill release profiles – including the latest addition to GELITA’s delivery system portfolio: GELITA EC for enteric gelatine capsule performance.

Staying active and mobile

At its booth, GELITA will offer visitors to Supplyside West in-depth information on specific collagen peptides that support the musculoskeletal system.

For example, TENDOFORTE has a pronounced stimulatory impact on the biosynthesis of extracellular matrix molecules in ligaments and tendons. This makes it highly suitable for sports nutrition products targeted toward protecting soft tissues in both amateur and professional athletes.

As it makes up 95% of organic bone matrix, collagen is also essential for strong and stable bones. Now, a new study has investigated the long-term effects of specific collagen peptide supplementation on bone health.

Experts will be available at the GELITA booth to talk visitors through the promising results, which confirm a pronounced increase in bone mineral density after FORTIBONE supplementation.

To showcase how these and other GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides could work in finished products, GELITA has developed a full menu of exciting beverages and foods to be exclusively featured and sampled at the Supplyside West Tasting Bar (booth 5735).

At the GELITA CAFÉ within the Tasting Bar, attendees will have the opportunity to partake of everyday foods and beverages that have been creatively infused with collagen for added benefits and value.

In addition to products with TENDOFORTE and FORITGEL, GELITA will offer selections including BODYBALANCE for body toning and increased muscle strength and VERISOL for improved skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction, and even cellulite reduction as well as improved nail growth.

Excellent fill release performance

Soft gelatin capsules are a preferred delivery method for all kinds of nutrients and active ingredients. By adjusting the production process of soft capsule gelatin, GELITA 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. As of now, the company can cover the complete spectrum of desired fill release profiles – from very fast release in the stomach to very slow release in the intestine – and everything in between!

GELITA EC Gelatine product is just one product of a complete line-up for optimised gelatins for the world’s most popular delivery systems.

GELITA has designed and developed a comprehensive portfolio 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 gummies.
