Wellnex collagen peptide ingredients add minimal viscosity, color, flavor, or odor, to final formulations. Exceptional heat and pH stability means that our collagen peptides are more resistant to precipitation in the presence of polysaccharides than many plant or dairy-based proteins. Additionally, their instant cold-water solubility makes them the perfect solution to powdered “ready to mix” beverage applications.

In bar and bakery applications, Wellnex collagen peptides improve pliability, softness and shelf-life, while acting as a binding agent for other ingredients. Collagen peptides may be included as a protein source in high protein formulations, while also contributing to specific health benefits associated with their unique dipeptide and amino acid compositions.


Custom Delivery Options

Popular delivery formats include:

Gummies: Nutraceutical gummies are favorites for kids and adults alike. Wellnex collagen peptides can easily be incorporated at up to 20% in gelatin or pectin-based gummy supplements, with no degradation to finished product texture or shelf-life.

Powders: Blending well with other dietary supplement ingredients in powdered formats, Wellnex collagen peptides are ideal for “ready-to-mix” applications in canisters, flexible packaging, sachets, and single serve stick packs for customer convenience.

Tablets & Capsules: Wellnex collagen peptides can be directly compressible. Our granulated products produce clean edges and a firm, stable tablets. Due to their unique particle size and bulk density, Wellnex collagen peptides are used in filled capsules and run efficiently through capsule equipment.

Liquid Supplements: Wellnex collagen peptides are highly water soluble with a neutral taste and aroma. They can be used effectively in highly concentrated, viscosity-controlled liquid dietary supplements.
