What is Peptan

Peptan, a high-purity, natural bioactive product

Peptan® collagen peptides are so-called Type 1 Collagen Peptides. This means they are identical to the collagens found in human bones and skin. Peptan® is a high-purity, natural bioactive product, containing more than 97% protein (on a dry weight basis). 

Peptan collagen peptides are optimized for high bioavailability and activity, and their hydrolyzed form makes them easily digestible by humans. Peptan is a bioactive ingredient that has been specifically developed to deliver multiple health benefits and functional properties. As a natural, non-allergenic and clean label ingredient, it can be easily and cost-effectively incorporated into functional foods and beverages, nutri-cosmetics and dietary supplements without impacting taste or odor. 

Peptan's unique amino acid composition

Peptan contains 18 amino acids, the building blocks of our tissues and the primary component of proteins. Glycine, proline and hydroxyproline represent around 50% of Peptan’s total amino acid content; the glycine and proline concentration in Peptan is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. As a result, Peptan offers health benefits that cannot be found in other protein sources.

Developed to improve health

Peptan collagen peptides deliver multiple health benefits and display unique bioactive properties in body tissues. At Rousselot, we believe in investing in scientific evidence and clinical studies, and we continue to perform scientific studies, including in-vitro, in-vivo and clinical research to further substantiate Peptan’s health benefits and broaden its application potential.

Peptan is the world’s leading collagen peptides brand.
