Geltor, a brand new startup that predominantly bioengineers animal-free proteins, has announced the launch of its most anticipated vegan collagen product called PrimaColl. The company has reported that The Spoon, PrimaColl, which the company privileges are the world's first vegan collagen for food and beverage markets, is a nature-identical replica of poultry collagen that is directly derived using precision fermentation technology.
Collagen, the most abundant protein in humans, has many health benefits, especially important for us as we age. The animal-derived collagen, which is sourced from the bones and other byproducts of farmed animals such as chickens and cows, has now become a crucial ingredient in food and beverage markets in recent times. But for vegans, traditionally derived collagen is problematic.
Many consumers who are abstaining from animal products are forced to use collagen "booster" products which are claimed to help increase human collagen production but are not collagen substitutes. This is why Geltor sees such a potentially significant opportunity, and thereby the company is delivering the first-to-market natural animal collagen replica that could be a massive opportunity across a number who rely on collagen.
