Collagen

The addition of collagen in food products is a consumer friendly way of improving texture, juiciness and the overall eating experience while sticking to a clean-label. Collagen is the building blocks of the body’s various connective tissues and is a sought after ingredient for health benefits. When used, collagen binds to fat and acts as a stabilizer and emulsifier which helps to naturally maintain more moisture. In meat and poultry adding collagen increases yield, reduces purge and shrinkage while improving the overall slice-ability of the final product. When used in nutritional products, collagen increases protein content, acts as a stabilizer and emulsifier binding fat to water, and is a great addition for the label conscious consumer looking for value added health and beauty products.
