We’re here today to set the record straight and help you to decide which product (or both!) fits best in your life. Take a look at the answers to the questions you always had when settling the Collagen vs. Beef Gelatin debate:
Our Collagen Peptides formula is unflavoured and dissolves in both hot or cold liquids. It’s easy to use in a large variety of foods or drinks, making it a great option for those who are busy and want a no-muss, no-fuss collagen solution.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen is made up of amino acids: glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. The composition of collagen is considered unique given its high hydroxyproline content. If you lack the amino acids that combine to form collagen, your body’s cells can’t produce enough of it.
There are many benefits of collagen, such as supporting a youthful appearance. As collagen is a protein, it also helps to maintain muscle mass.
Our Beef Gelatin must first be ‘bloomed’ in a cold or room temperature liquid. This process plumps up the granules and makes them easier to stir into your food. After ‘blooming,’ you’ll need to add it to hot liquid in order to fully dissolve them.
Beef Gelatin sets up jiggly (like jelly) when chilled. The gelatin has the advantage of taking slightly longer to digest and coating the small intestine. Plus, it’s also unflavoured.
