Growing Demand of Collagen for Meat Processing

Collagen has been a popular processing aid among meat processors in United States, Mexico, Canada, and other regions of North America, where meat products are a popular choice of meal. According to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the retail sales value of meat products is forecasted to increase to USD 3.84 billion by 2022 in Canada. Since collagen peptides, as an additive, enhance tenderness and juiciness, the two highly desirable traits that consumers seek in any processed meat products, the trend is expected to continue. Collagen also contributes to the nutritional value, flavor, and succulence of meats. Infact, it can be added to meat and meat products, either as a constituent of high-collagen peptide-based meat, or in a concentrated form (as a direct additive). In either form, collagen and its derivatives can significantly affect the processability and organoleptic attributes. Collagen peptides also significantly reduce the occurrence rate of fat caps in meat and meat products, thus aiding in its storage stability. These factors, coupled with growing meat demand is driving the market for collagen in North America.
