Peptan Collagen Peptides

The Peptan® story began in the early 2000s, when scientists at Rousselot discovered a specific blend of natural proteins (enzymes) that transform native collagen molecules into collagen peptides while preserving the neutral organoleptic properties (odor and taste) and white color of the collagen peptides powder.

Spurred by this realization, Rousselot began developing a full range of collagen peptides, to be marketed under the brand name Peptan®.

Peptan collagen peptides are made from fish skin, pigskin or bovine hide from stock farm-bred for human consumption. Rousselot collagens are produced from selected, high-quality raw materials subject to continuous rigorous checks on safety and origin.

Rousselot Research & Development teams called on scientific experts to verify the health benefits associated with collagen peptides. As the findings emerged, Rousselot teams became more and more convinced of the unique properties of Peptan collagen peptides. Several comprehensive studies were subsequently published in recognized scientific journals.

Peptide is derived from the Greek word πεπτός, which means “digested”. Peptides are fragment of proteins.

Peptan® are type-I collagen peptides and have the same amino-acid content as that found in human bones and skin. Peptan® is a high purity, natural bioactive ingredient containing more than 97% protein, with no fat or carbohydrates. Peptan® is supplied in a form that is easy to use and digest, as shown by scientific analysis.

Rigorous research findings and unmatched quality make Peptan® a truly differentiated ingredient. Numerous studies have been published and reviewed over the past decade endorsing its safety and efficacy.

When it comes to quality, safety and clinical evidence, the scientific qualities of Peptan® remain unparalleled.

Peptan® is produced using GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facilities. As far as safety is concerned, collagen peptide is without doubt one of the world's best studied foodstuffs and it has been confirmed safe by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Peptan® is Kosher and Halal certified and has earned Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) status in the USA.

Peptan® is a registered trademark (registration is ongoing worldwide).
