Key Market Trends

Increased Application in Food and Beverage Segment

Collagen is widely used in the food and beverage industry to improve the elasticity, consistency, and stability of products, especially in the snack bars and soup bases. Collagen also enhances the quality and nutritional and health value of these food products. It is used as an additive in food, including snack bars, soup bases, desserts, and pastry glazes, during processing, to improve color, texture, flavor, or quality. Collagen peptides, which are used as food additives, help to improve the rheological properties of sausages and frankfurters while providing animal nutritive fibers in adequate amounts. The heat-treated collagen fiber has been increasingly used as an emulsifier in various food, especially in acidic products. In addition, heat-stabilized collagen fiber acts as a natural alternative to synthetic emulsifiers, for use in acidic food and drink formulations
