GELITA to exhibit at Natural Products Expo West 2019

The company will feature collagen protein solutions for sports nutrition and controlled capsule fill release

GELITA is set to return to Natural Products Expo West to exhibit and 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 on display. 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.

Manufacturers of soft gelatine 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.

Collagen ingredients supported by science

At its booth, GELITA will offer visitors to Natural Products Expo West in-depth information on specific collagen peptides that support the musculoskeletal system. TENDOFORTE has a pronounced stimulatory impact on the biosynthesis of extracellular matrix molecules in ligaments and tendons. This makes it 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 results, which confirm an increase in bone mineral density after FORTIBONE supplementation.

GELITA experts will also be available for in-depth discussions on a range of other products, including BODYBALANCE, for body toning and increased muscle strength; FORTIGEL, for supporting joint health and mobility; and VERISOL, for improved skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction and even cellulite reduction, as well as improved nail growth.

Gelatine ingredients for delivery systems

Soft gelatine capsules are a preferred delivery method for all kinds of nutrients and active ingredients. By adjusting the production process of soft capsule gelatine, 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 gelatine product for true enteric performance.

GELITA has designed and developed a comprehensive portfolio of gelatines, including GELITA RXL for reduced cross-linking and improved shelf stablity; GELITA RXL R2 for faster release of the active fill and custom-designed standard gelatines for optimum performance in hard and soft capsules and gummies.

GELITA has joined forces with Hänsel Processing GmbH and Winkler & Dünnebier Süβwarenmaschinen (WDS) to revolutionise gelatine gummy production with “Fast Forward Process” technology – a starch-free production method that uses reusable silicone moulds instead of traditional starch trays.
