Company description

Within the range of collagen proteins, GELITA supplies collagen peptides with proven body-stimulating capabilities and tailor-made gelatins. In today’s landscape of highest consumer demands, manufacturers of food products and dietary supplements rely on natural, healthy, non-allergenic ingredients for their developments. Collagen proteins from GELITA fulfill all of these requirements and are foodstuffs in their own right (no E-number). They also possess a set of unique technical and physiological properties.

Collagen peptides enable manufacturers to add specific health aspects. GELITA has intensified its research in developing solutions for this important market segments:
Physical mobility with FORTIGEL®, bone stability with FORTIBONE®, beauty from within solutions for nutricosmetics with VERISOL®, optimized body composition with BODYBALANCE®, and finally TENDOFORTE® for strengthening ligaments and tendons. GELITA also provides a whole portfolio of capsule gelatines to define the fill release profile of the soft capsule from extremely fast and reduced cross-linking (GELITA® RXL R²) to very low or even enteric release (GELITA® EC).
