Rousselot, Darling Ingredients’ health brand, invites visitors to booth I114 at Vitafoods 2022, where it will show its latest collagen and gelatin ingredients. At this year’s event, the company will reintroduce its all-in-one collagen matrix designed to provide joint care benefits for several consumer demographics. In addition, the company will discuss its porcine collagen ingredients and SiMoGel gelatin platform for nutraceutical gummies.
Visitors to the company’s booth can also make use of the ‘Live Chat Corner’, where they can speak with formulation experts and discuss tailored technical solutions for specific formulation challenges.
In less than 30 years, the number of people aged 60 years and over is expected to double, reaching a total of 2.1 billion. In parallel to these demographic changes, the market value of dietary supplements aimed at supporting mobility is forecast to grow by 4.7% CAGR by 2026. This creates significant opportunity for nutritional solutions formulated to support bone and joint health and help an ageing global population keep fit into later life.
On Tuesday 10 May at 2:30pm at the Life Stages Theatre, Dr Sara De Pelsmaeker, Global Business Development Health & Nutrition at Rousselot will unveil the findings of a recent study to help brands address these shifting consumer trends. Through the speech, entitled: ‘Joint care innovation with an all-in-one collagen matrix, fueled by new consumer-based science’, attendees will learn about the use of the company’s collagen matrix in the joint care of more than two-hundred people, all varying in age, gender, and activity level.
The company’s Peptan brand is a bioavailable collagen peptide ingredient which delivers health benefits from joint support and bone health, to enhanced skin and hair beauty. At the event, Rousselot will highlight the specific advantages of Peptan P, an accessible premium-quality collagen solution of porcine origin that offers a fast route to market. Event attendees can experience the functional and sensory properties of Peptan P on-stand, through specialised samples, including an oat-based breakfast solution tailored for the nutritional needs of seniors.
Manufacturing nutritional gummies can be a difficult task, as traditional starch molding techniques present a risk of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) cross-contamination. Rousselot’s SiMoGel gelatin means manufacturers can produce functional, liquid-centre filled gummies using an inherently hygienic, starch-free molding technique. The ‘gummy caps’ allow for higher and more accurate API dosing, with virtually no risk of interaction with the gelatin excipient.At the company’s booth, visitors can sample liquid-centre gummies with Ibuprofen.
