Food supplement with unique nutritional and physiological properties.
The special thing about this raw material is not only the addition of minerals. It is also important and beautiful that the collagen comes from certified pasture farming. The cattle are on Argentinean pastures and not, as usual, in the stable. And this is verifiable. The husbandry of the animals is controlled by LIAF Control, which in turn is a member of the American Grassfed Association.

Why we like this grass-fed collagen hydrolysate
Humans and animals benefit equally from species-appropriate husbandry. The use of hormones, antibiotics and anabolic steroids is both prohibited and unnecessary in this pasture-based husbandry. The farms on which the animals grow up must maintain strict protocols. Industrial animal feed, for example, is banned and the cattle must be shown to spend their entire lives on pasture.
Collagen hydrolysate is a highly processed substance. In the first step, the native collagen protein is extracted from cattle split and bones by enzymatic hydrolysis. In the following production steps such as purification, concentration, extraction, sterilisation and drying, the collagen is split into different peptides (amino acid chains). This makes the powder neutral in taste and highly soluble.
What is the difference between collagen and collagen hydrolysate?
Collagen hydrolysate is made from collagen. It is legally classified as a food and is used as a special form of collagen hydrolysate in food supplements. Under "normal bio-physiological" circumstances, collagen is not soluble. However, it can be hydrolysed with the help of bases, acids or heat. Hydrolysis is the splitting of a biochemical compound - in this case collagen - into many small individual parts. Gelatine, for example, consists of concentrated, dried, purified, sterilised and ground collagen hydrolysate.
Pure collagen hydrolysate is enzymatically hydrolysed collagen that is soluble in water. In addition to food supplements, it is also used in hair cosmetics to improve combability and hair shine. Collagen hydrolysate is also found in cosmetics, such as topical skin care creams. However, collagen hydrolysate is most commonly used in the manufacture of products with a high protein content. Collagen hydrolysate has virtually no allergy risk, unlike other proteins. It can also be used to make clear drinks that do not taste bitter. For these reasons, it is increasingly found in protein products such as protein powders, protein bars and protein drinks.
Another area of application for collagen hydrolysate is the food sector, where it is used in the production of meat and sausage products, as well as in drinks and sweets. And last but not least, it is used in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of tablets, capsule coatings and as a filling agent. In the food supplement industry, special collagen hydrolysate powders are used that contain specific peptides.
