Collagen Peptides is a natural protein product, obtained by the enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen-rich material or the hides and connective tissues of cows. These hides would normally be discarded as a byproduct of the meat industry, but since they’re a perfect source of collagen, the hides are able to be "upcycled" and turned into a high-quality health product.
Are your Collagen Peptides pasteurized?
Pasteurization is a process used for dairy (milk) products. Since Collagen Peptides do not contain dairy, they are not pasteurized.
How are the cow hides processed?
After harvesting the cattle for their meat, the cow hides (skins) are removed and then treated to extract their collagen protein. During this process, the proteins are hydrolyzed, which breaks down the collagen proteins into smaller, more digestible amino acids.
