The Power of SMART TECHNOLOGY
At this year’s FiE, GELITA, the leading manufacturer of gelatine and collagen peptides, focused on revolutionizing gelatine gummy production with two smart technological solutions based on collagenous proteins.
At this year’s FiE, GELITA, the leading manufacturer of gelatine and collagen peptides, focused on two smart technological solutions based on collagenous proteins, highlighting the various benefits of its novel “Fast Forward Process” and “Particle Engineering” — both of which belong to the company’s SMART TECHNOLOGY portfolio.
The new Fast Forward Process demonstrates the power of cross-business development and revolutionizes gelatine gummy production. The novel solution comprises an innovative gummy formulation from GELITA, an innovative cooking process developed by Hänsel Processing GmbH and a new depositing line from WDS (Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen). The starch-free production method uses reusable silicon molds instead of traditional starch trays, creating significant added value for customers by shortening the gelatine gummy manufacturing time from two days to just one hour, lowering costs and providing a cleaner working environment.
Furthermore, GELITA has turned its established range of collagen peptides into enhanced ingredients with additional benefits. Both Collagen Peptides ST and HST exhibit improved process performance, namely less dust during handling, fewer clumping issues during dissolution, improved wettability and higher bulk densities. The HST version even offers the best of two worlds: Bioactive Collagen Peptides® with gelling power. For the customer, this means improved production, optimized machinability and the ability to develop new and exciting products.
Within the range of collagen proteins, GELITA supplies collagen peptides with proven body-stimulating capabilities, tailor-made gelatines and non- or partly- water soluble collagens. This holistic range of products in combination with its vast experience in developing solutions for different applications makes GELITA first choice for its customers.
In today’s landscape of highest consumer demands, manufacturers of food products have to rely on natural, healthy, non-allergenic ingredients for their developments. Collagen proteins from GELITA are the perfect match for this as they fulfill all of these requirements, a particular plus being the fact that they are foodstuffs in their own right (e.g. no E-number). They also possess a set of unique technical and physiological properties.
Besides the traditional use of collagen proteins as natural stabilizers and emulsifiers for countless products, they enable manufacturers to provide their products with other properties which are becoming more and more important. GELITA has intensified its research in developing solutions for physical mobility, weight management and beauty from within.
