1. Once the package has been opened, how long can I keep using TEXTURA™?
The most important thing is that you store the product in a completely dry place: humidity will affect the functionality of the product. So close the packaging well, immediately after use.
2. Does TEXTURA™ have an impact on the organoleptic properties?
No, it is neutral to taste and odor. Moreover, because you don’t have to heat TTR during the process, all the goodness of your ingredients will remain intact.
1. What are SOLUGEL® collagen peptides?
Collagen peptides, which are also known as collagen hydrolysate or hydrolyzed collagen, are a highly digestible protein obtained through the enzymatic treatment of collagen rich materials.
Sourced from the highest quality raw materials, the bioactive SOLUGEL® collagen peptides are produced from a strictly controlled process that uses a unique biotechnology that results in consistent premium quality.
2. What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and it accounts for over 30% of the body’s protein. As the key building blocks that provide support and structure to our bodies, collagen is present in all connective tissues such as skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. As the structural framework of the body, collagen plays a crucial role in terms of supporting and connecting everything together.
3. What is the difference between gelatin and collagen peptides?
Gelatin and collagen peptides are both natural products that are extracted from collagen-rich materials. While gelatin is an ingredient that is typically used as a gelling agent, emulsifier, stabilizer or water binding agent for confectionery, dairy, desserts and pharmaceutical applications, collagen peptides are predominately consumed for the nutritional value and health benefits, as well as easy integration in food and beverages.
4. How is SOLUGEL® absorbed by the human body?
Collagen peptides are further hydrolyzed into smaller peptides or even free amino acids along the human digestive tract. They can also easily be absorbed in the intestine. Tests have proven that they reach the blood stream within 15 minutes and are available to exert different functions in target tissues. The presence of peptides reached a maximum level after 1-2 hours and then decreased to one-half of the maximum level 4 hours after the ingestion.
5. Are SOLUGEL® collagen peptides protein?
SOLUGEL® collagen peptides are pure proteins. This natural ingredient is free from gluten, sugar, fat, cholesterol and carbohydrates, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. It does not contain any additives or preservatives.
6. Can I combine SOLUGEL® collagen peptides and other proteins such as whey?
Thanks to the neutral flavor and smell, as well as the excellent dissolution properties, SOLUGEL® can easily be combined with other proteins for your healthy and balanced diets or formulation needs. In fact, you will appreciate the synergy between different proteins to help you realize your sport and fitness goals. For example, a shake containing a blend of collagen and whey protein is ideal for pre and post workout for muscle building and tissue protection.
7. What are the health benefits associated with collagen peptides?
Several clinical studies have proven the positive health benefits of collagen peptides in relation to the skin, bones, joints, weight management and sports performance.
8. What is the recommended daily dosage?
The recommended daily dosage ranges from 5-15g per day depending on the desired health benefits, and the duration of intake may also vary. Contact us for an overview of recommended dosage and duration of the oral intake of collagen peptides.
9. What is the production process of SOLUGEL® collagen peptides?
SOLUGEL® collagen peptides are extracted from collagen-rich raw materials by a strictly controlled process that involves enzymatic treatment, extraction, drying, etc. The state-of-the-art-technology we use guarantees premium quality products.
10. Are there also kosher or halal SOLUGEL® collagen peptides?
Yes, we are able to supply kosher and halal SOLUGEL®.
11. Can we use your SOLUGEL® brand name or logos in our communications? (e.g. on our website, in our brochures, etc.)
