Great Question! Collagen supplements are one of the fastest trends within the functional-food space, and for good reason. Collagen is a main component of your hair, skin, nails, ligaments, and more – it is the human body’s most abundant protein, making up around 35% of total protein content. It ensures the integrity, elasticity and strength of our body’s connective tissues and thus maintains the form and function of our skin, cartilage and bones. Yes, we seriously NEED collagen!
When consumers find out how important collagen is, many look for creative ways to add collagen into their daily routine, but struggle to find an easy way to do it, and even more importantly, they don’t want it to taste awful or chalky.
Enter Collagen Creamer! This new form of supplement is trending on the market, offering collagen in an easy-to-use format that blends well with anything you would use traditional creamer or booster in. (Coffee, Smoothies, Protein Shakes, Tea, etc.) Collagen Creamers usually contain ingredients that boost your collagen production mixed with additional ingredients to boost flavor and give it a delicious creamy texture.
So What’s The Problem?
The main problem with most of the Collagen add-ins, boosters, or creamers on the market today is that the taste is still off-putting! Say it ain’t so… No matter how beneficial a product is, it can be hard to keep it in a daily routine if the taste is a pain-point.
The second problem is that most of the collagen in the market comes from animal products (BOVINE). As plant-based diets continue to gain traction, this makes it very difficult for anyone looking for a plant-based collagen booster to find a functional and great tasting product on the market. Many consumers also want the convenience of a booster or creamer to add to their routine. So how can I add collagen to my diet if I don’t want to eat Cow Hooves or Hide? Let’s back up for one second… What science tells us is that Bovine Collagen Peptides are broken down in our digestive system to amino acids – those amino acids are then converted into collagen within your body. So why not bypass the whole eat a cow thing??
