Gelita will exhibit at this year’s Natural Products Expo West, presenting its range of bioactive collagen peptides (BCPs) along with its Controlled Release portfolio. The company will discuss how its BCP products can address condition-specific needs for athletes and consumers with an active lifestyle. It can also assist manufacturers in choosing which gelatins for soft gel, hard-capsule or gummy delivery systems is best for a given product.
Gelita offers ingredients clinically substantiated for ligament and tendon health, joint health and mobility, bone mass density, stability and flexibility, as well as body toning and muscle strength. For beauty-from-within applications, the company says its Verisol collagen peptide will help improve skin elasticity, wrinkle and cellulite appearance and promote nail growth and stronger hair.
The company will also showcase its gelatin delivery systems at the show, including variations for true enteric performance with soft gels, reduced cross-linking and improved shelf stability or faster release of the active ingredient. It has also developed two products in a gummy format: the aforementioned Verisol collagen peptide, as well as Soluform, a protein-boosting ingredient for confectionery applications.
