What’s the difference between collagen peptides and hydrolyzed collagen?

Collagen Peptides or Hydrolyzed collagen? In this article we clarify the two names and get to the root of where they come from and what they mean. There is no difference. The terms collagen peptides and hydrolyzed collagen are synonymous and used interchangeably for the same product. It’s just a matter of semantics. The phrase ‘collagen peptides’ is based on the end product, which are peptides derived from collagen; whereas ‘hydrolyzed collagen’ comes from the hydrolyzation process, the method by which collagen peptides are made. For a simple illustration, consider the ingredient ‘wheat flour’. You can call it ‘ground wheat’, after the grinding process. Or ‘wheat flour’ after the end product i.e. flour. So hydrolyzed collagen is just another way of saying collagen peptides. Hydrolyzed Collagen vs Collagen Peptides:...

Collagen Peptides: Support Your Skin the Nutritional Way

Skin beauty: a fresh approach to an old problem Over the last few decades the most popular methods for maintaining skin beauty have been centered on the use of creams, lotions and gels applied directly to the skin as part of a daily routine. Another popular method is cosmetic surgery, which is very costly and quite invasive.

Consumers are becoming more aware of the scientific studies that support new innovations in the skin care industry. The concept ‘beauty from within’ is finding its way into the consumer’s mind. ‘Beauty from within’ is the idea that skin beauty should also be addressed by daily nutrition. The part of the...

Rediscovering porcine collagen

Pork is a relatively overlooked source of collagen peptides. Yet it’s been part of our diets for many thousands of years. So in this article we’re going to look at what porcine collagen is, its history and why it’s currently making a comeback in the Western world.   What is collagen? Collagen is a protein that can be found in all animals, including humans. It’s basically the glue that holds everything together and gives structure to the body. The highest concentrations of collagen are found in connective tissues, bones and skin. This type of unprocessed collagen is commonly known as ‘native collagen’.   Native collagen vs collagen peptides Native collagen is hard to digest. So, for it to have nutritional value, native collagen needs to be processed into collagen peptides for bioavailability....
