Custom Collagen

What are Collagen Peptides?

Collagen Peptides are 100% hydrolyzed gelatin. There are no fillers, additives, MSG, GMOS or artificial ingredients. This is simply collagen that has gone through an additional enzyme process called hydrolysis. This process breaks down the protein chains that are naturally occurring into smaller pieces, creating a hot or cold water soluble collagen powder supplement that is easy for the body to digest and absorb.

Amino Acids and Collagen

The collagen molecule is made up of amino acids joined together to form long, molecular chains. There are 18 different amino acids in collagen, each occurring at its own level and sequence in the molecule. Collagen is an excellent dietary source of the primary amino acids that make up the protein molecule:

  • Glycine
  • Proline
  • Hydroxyproline
  • Lysine
  • Hydroxylysine

As a concentrated source of these amino acids, collagen nourished the tissues throughout the body, such as cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, vital organs, skin, hair and nails.

THE FACILITY

Gelatin Innovations was created in 2001 by the owner of Vyse Gelatin Company because he saw the need for a gelatin company that served more specialized gelatin markets. Gelatin Innovations focused on small pack sizes and gelatin dessert flavor blends. Due to its success, Gelatin Innovations acquired the Custom Collagen division of Vyse Gelatin Company in 2012 and assumed the Custom Collagen name as this name more accurately portrays the nature of the business. As a highly specialized gelatin company, Custom Collagen is able to supply all gelatin markets to ensure that we meet your specific needs. We understand that there are many customers with unique requirements. We were established to meet those requirements by maintaining maximum flexibility and offering options that are not available with other gelatin companies. Our connection to Vyse Gelatin allows us to draw on over 80 years of knowledge and experience in the gelatin industry. Our small packaging options are perfect for small businesses and retail sales.

Our new facility was completed in 2012. It features state of the art equipment that was designed by our president who has 40+ years of experience in this industry. Our shelves are always stocked with a large variety of premium gelatin and collagen. Quality, efficiency, and cleanliness are important to us. We take pride in our raw material selection process and internal organization systems. Here, each order is carefully selected and custom blended to meet your specification.

What is Gelatin made from?

Gelatin is a protein that is a hydrocolloid. There are two types of gelatin. Gelatin derived from an acid-treated precursor is known as Type A. Gelatin derived from an alkali-treated precursor is known as Type B. Gelatin is obtained by the partial hydrolysis of collagen derived from the skin, white connective tissue and bones of animals. Gelatin does not occur free in nature, and cannot be recovered from horns, hooves and other non-collagen containing parts of vertebrate animals. There are no plant sources of gelatin, and there is no chemical relationship between gelatin and other materials referred to as vegetable gelatin, such as seaweed extracts.

Collagen Shelf Life

If collagen is stored in a tightly sealed poly-lined container in normal indoor conditions, it will remain stable indefinitely. The only exception is if the collagen is kept in a heat above (45°C) 113°F with relative humidity above 60%. In this extreme scenario, the collagen will gradually lose its ability to swell and dissolve.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GELATIN AND HYDROLYZED GELATIN (COLLAGEN)?

Answer: Gelatin can only dissolve in hot liquid and will form a gel. Hydrolyzed gelatin (collagen) will dissolve in cold or hot liquid and will not form a gel.

IS YOUR HYDROLYZED GELATIN | COLLAGEN PEPTIDES DIETARY SUPPLEMENT MADE FROM GRASS-FED CATTLE?

Answer: We are aware of some gelatin companies claiming that their gelatin comes from grass-fed cattle. However, they will never be able to certify that. The raw materials for this specific product are sourced from the same places; Brazil, Columbia and Argentina. We do sell hundreds of gelatin products that are sourced from other countries, but we are very selective in the material that is used for our dietary supplements. There is no governing body in South America that will certify beef as grass-fed because there may be occasional pieces of corn, grain, etc. that the cattle consume while grazing. We have visited and inspected the facilities from which our raw materials are sourced. We know that they are pasture raised, which is the standard for South America. Grass is the cheapest and more plentiful feed available. If you are currently purchasing beef gelatin or collagen from another company who is claiming that their product is made from 100% grass-fed cattle, we strongly recommend asking for something in writing that will certify the claim.

IS YOUR GELATIN ORGANIC?

Answer: The word "organic" will never be applicable to gelatin. The process to make gelatin is not at all organic.

ARE THE COWS USED TO MAKE OUR HYDROLYZED GELATIN | COLLAGEN PEPTIDES FED GROWTH HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS?

Answer: Out of all of the testing that we have seen performed on the materials used to produce this product (hides, skin), we have never detected antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, or herbicides. As a result, none of these would be present in our finished product.

WHAT IS TYPE I COLLAGEN?

Answer: Type I Collagen is the most abundant type of collagen and is made from skin, bone, tendon, and fibrous tissue.

WHAT IS TYPE II COLLAGEN?

Answer: Type II Collagen is made from cartilage and is commercially derived from chickens.

WHAT IS TYPE III COLLAGEN?

Answer: Type III Collagen is made from skin and fibrous tissue; no bone or tendon.

WHAT DOES HYDROLYZED MEAN IN THE CASE OF OUR PRODUCTS?

Answer: When we hydrolyze gelatin, we do nothing more than put the gelatin in an enzyme bath. We do this to break down the gelatin's ability to make a gel. These protein digesting enzymes help us break down and digest our protein foods. Since gelatin is a pure collagen product, it is very difficult to digest on its own. The hydrolysis merely helps us digest the product easier. The gelatin still has all of the properties that it started out with; such as amino acids. The only difference is that there are now shorter protein chains that our bodies can use. There are no MSG or artificial ingredients added.

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED SERVING FOR OUR HYDROLYZED GELATIN | COLLAGEN PEPTIDES?

Answer: We recommended taking 11 grams once a day.

CAN YOU TAKE OUR HYDROLYZED GELATIN | COLLAGEN PEPTIDES MORE THAN ONCE A DAY?

Answer: Absolutely! We have heard some great success stories from people who take this two or three times per day. Since this product is purely hydrolyzed gelatin, there is no toxic level.

CAN I GIVE YOUR HYDROLYZED GELATIN | COLLAGEN PEPTIDES TO MY DOG?

Answer: Yes! We recommended 1.5 tsp per 50 lbs.

WHAT IS "BLOOM?"

Answer: The measurement of force, in grams, required to depress a standard plunger on a texture analyzer 4mm into the surface of a 6.67% gelatin sample at 10ºC (50ºF). The harder the gelatin the higher the bloom strength.

IS ALL GELATIN THE SAME?

Answer: No. Gelatin is tested and “graded” according to strength. The grade is based on the “bloom” test. The higher the bloom number, the higher the grade. Gelatin is usually priced according to the grade; the higher the grade, the higher the price.

WHAT IS BULK DENSITY?

Answer: Bulk density is the exact volume of space the gelatin takes up. Bulk density is determined by pouring the gelatin into a graduated cylinder. Once filled and leveled with a spatula, the loose density calculation is recorded. Then the cylinder is taped 15 times on the bench top and the packed density is recorded. The test is repeated three times and the average value is recorded. Our test results are expressed in grams per Cubic Centimeter (g/cc). You may convert our expression to any unit of measurement that fits your need.

WHAT IS VISCOSITY?

Answer: Viscosity is a measure of a 6.67% gelatin solutions resistance to flow at 60ºC (140ºF). Flow time of 100 ml of a 6.67% gelatin solution at 60ºC (140ºF) through a standard pipette. The time required to flow through a standard viscosity pipette is mathematically converted into a viscosity measurement expressed in millipoises.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
