As a result of the new health trend, there is a significant opportunity for beverage companies to formulate healthy ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages that will resonate with shoppers. In response to this, Weishardt's on-trend solutions deliver proven health benefits related to well-being and beauty-from-within, and are easy to formulate into affordable beverages that are pleasant to drink.
Naticol fish collagen peptides offer an outstanding nutritional profile, proven health benefits and all-round cost effectiveness. They are produced from quality natural raw materials (fish skins) using a specific enzymatic hydrolysis process that ensures the finished ingredient has a unique collagen peptide profile that delivers enhanced efficacy in functional beverage applications.
The efficacy of Naticol has been shown in pre-clinical and clinical studies conducted in three main areas: skin health, musculoskeletal and joint health, and weight control. Due to its high bioavailability and bioactivity, Naticol is the ideal ingredient of choice for drink formulations delivering well-being and anti-ageing benefits.
Adding Naticol to a beverage formulation is an effective way to add value and generate greater differentiation. It is the perfect functional ingredient for use in RTD beverages and dry instant powder drinks. It offers excellent solubility in cold water and other aqueous solutions, creating a transparent solution that will not gel and has very low viscosity. It is also stable in processes involving heat treatment, such as pasteurisation.
