Eberbach, October 2016 – At the HiE trade show from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 in Frankfurt, Germany, GELITA will present a first in a new series of SMART TECHNOLOGY solutions: Collagen Peptides ST is a range of enhanced ingredients that brings an optimized performance level and an improved processing performance to customers.
Dr. Margarethe Plotkowiak, head of global product management food at GELITA, notes: “In new product development, there are often limitations by process parameters of existing equipment. These difficulties can be related to dissolution or, for example, undesired foaming. The ST product range was developed to overcome these hurdles. This not only enables manufacturers to run more stable, controlled and optmized processes, it also facilitates the creation of new products without these previous limitations and without investing in new production facilities.”
Building on GELITA’s existing product range Collagen Peptides ST provide physiological functionalities and technological functionalities. Both exhibit improved process performance, namely less dust during handling, fewer clumping issues during dissolution, improved wettability and higher bulk densities. For the customer, this means improved production, optimized machinability and the ability to develop new and exciting products.
Potential applications include the fortification of clear, high-protein gummies with a protein content of up to 35%, and as a nutritious binding agent in cereal bars or coated products. The optimized bulk density means it’s now possible to significantly increase the amount of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® that for example can be included in a hard capsule shell. Furthermore, depending on the product and process requirements, viscosity and drying times can be adjusted to provide optimal results. Of course, in line with GELITA’s existing portfolio, ST products are non-allergenic and can be used to achieve a clean and clear label.
With new products being added to the portfolio on a regular basis, don’t miss this opportunity to discover more about GELITA’s SMART TECHNOLOGY solutions and its market-leading collagen proteins.
