What Are Gelatin Hydrolysate, Collagen Hydrolysate,
Gelatin & Collagen
Gelatin & Collagen
Basically, Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate or Gelatin are all derived from Collagen, which can be extracted from the bones, skins and scales of animals such as fish, bovine or porcine. Collagen or gelatin derived from fish and bovine are more popular comparatively. Collagen mainly consists of protein with very big molecular weight of 300kD in its original form.
Gelatin Hydrolysate is also known as Gelatine Hydrolysate, Collagen Hydrolysate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Gelatin or Collagen Peptides. It’s produced by enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen, where the amino acid chains of collagen peptides have been cut into smaller size of 3kD to facilitate absorption in the intestine. Collagen or gelatin in “hydrolysate” or “hydrolyzed” form is therefore rapidly digestible and highly bioavailable to your body systems, and it has no gelling effect.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Or Gelatin: Benefits, Efficacy & Safeness
Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin is gaining its popularity as nutritional food or supplements due to its scientifically proven health benefits. Clinical trials have established the mechanism on how Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate contributes to healthy bone, flexible and mobile joint, strong muscle, beautiful skin, hair or nail, etc. The benefits of collagen towards health and beauty were actually discovered as early as in the 12th century!
Collagen is a structural protein crucial for the structure and strength of your bone, joint, muscle, skin and body systems. It’s worth to note that more than 20 types of collagen have been identified and, each type of collagen has its unique composition of amino acids having different function and benefits.
More than 60 scientific studies have been conducted on the efficacy of Gelatin Hydrolysate or Collagen Hydrolysate in reducing collagen damage and loss in bone, joint, muscle, skin, among others. Erosion of collagen can cause joint pain or arthritis, loss of bone density or osteoporosis, muscle weakness, skin ageing, and so forth. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout are the most common types of arthritis affecting adults whilst children can be affected by juvenile arthritis.
Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin is favorable for enhancing bone density, joint cartilage or connective tissues like ligament and tendon, muscle strength, skin health and elasticity, hair growth or nail as collagen or gelatin in “hydrolyzed” form has much smaller molecular weight; hence, enhances digestibility and bioavailability. Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin is rich in special amino acids composition which can help to stimulate the metabolism of collagen and therefore, accelerate the building and repairing of body tissues.
Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin has been proven to be safe for long-term use besides the scientifically proven health benefits and efficacy. Clinical studies have suggested that consuming 5g to 10g of hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin a day would provide optimum supplementation.
Hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin practically can be consumed by most people. Opt for hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin derived from fish if you can’t take or allergic to bovine, and vice versa. However, you may want to avoid taking hydrolyzed collagen or gelatin if pregnant or undergoing dialysis, due to it’s high protein content.

Gelatin or gelatine, which is commonly used in foods, capsules, etc is produced by pre-treatment of collagen, has gelling effect and with molecular weight of 100kD.
