Global leader in gelatine and collagen peptides, Rousselot®, will be showcasing its exciting range of functional food ingredients at this year’s Vitafoods South America in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The company will present its award-winning Peptan® collagen peptides, as well as its extensive range of gelatine solutions. Rousselot representatives will in particular highlight Peptan’s scientifically proven ability to deliver specific health benefits, revealing the latest clinical study to support the ingredients’ efficacy. This will be of particular interest to manufacturers in Brazil, where the health and wellness market has more than doubled in the last six years, growing from $33.8m in 2007 to $70.4m in 2013.
Safe and reliable collagen peptides
Highly digestible and bioactive ingredients, Peptan collagen peptides are safe, natural sources of protein. Manufactured in state-of-the-art Rousselot production facilities in Brazil and France, Peptan collagen peptides offer unique biofunctional benefits not found in other protein sources.
A convergent body of research has proven Peptan’s ability to deliver joint health, skin beauty and sports nutrition benefits. The most recent insights on the efficacy of these functional ingredients will be delivered by Fernando Blüguermann, regional technical support and applications manager, at Vitafoods South America during the seminar ‘Peptan collagen: updates on the latest research and market development.’ This will include the recent clinical study on the effect of Peptan on joint health, carried out in partnership with the Shanghai 6th People’s Hospital of Shanghai Jiaotong University in China. The seminar will be held at 15:40 on April 8 in the Seminar Theatre.
In addition to aiding joint health, a regular intake of Peptan has been shown in numerous other scientific studies to boost collagen in skin and combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A pure and easily digestible protein, Peptan promotes satiety which is helpful for weight management, and supports muscle regeneration, which can assist recovery after exercise.
At the show, Rousselot will highlight its Peptan collagen peptides in both HD (high density) and fast-solubilizing LD (low density) formats, showcasing their unrivalled ability to meet all application requirements.
Peptan will be available to sample in several exciting applications such as delicious sugar-free Peptan ice-cream with joint health benefits. A range of beverages containing Peptan, including fruit juice and protein drinks with added skin beauty and joint health advantages will also be available.
