This very specific composition of amino acids provides Peptan with unique biofunctional properties that cannot be found in other protein sources.

As a bioactive protein, Peptan is highly digestible and bioavailable. It is neutral in taste and odor and can be easily incorporated into different applications – from functional foods and drinks, such as nutritional bars or powder drinks, to dietary supplements with little requirement for any additional product reformulation.

Today Peptan collagen peptide is recognized due to the substantial scientific evidence that backs it up. Collagen peptides’ efficacy in supporting joint and bone health, healthy aging, skin beauty and sports performance has been proven in double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies and results have been published in leading scientific journals.
