What is Collagen?

Collagen is the fundamental building block of human body and it accounts for approximately 30% of the protein content found in bodies. It is the key structural protein that ensures cohesion, elasticity and re-generation of all our connecting tissues, including skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones. In essence, collagen is strong and flexible and is the glue that holds everything together.

Collagen Peptide

Stable bones, mobile joints, smooth skin, glossy hair and health fingernails – collagen peptides play a very important role in keeping human body healthy and strong. Collagen peptide is derived by enzymatic hydrolysis of Collagen, which breaks down molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides, reducing the molecular weight from 30,000 – 200,000 Da to 2000 -10,000 Da. With a very lower molecular, collagen peptide is highly soluble in water and can be readily absorbed into the body.

Jellice Collagen Peptide is derived from Bovine bone, Bovine Hide and Fish skin. Jellice manufactures fresh bovine bone and fish skin into gelatin and then into collagen peptide. Collagen Peptide finds application in food supplements and is also widely used in skin and hair-care products.

Our Collagen Peptide is pure (> 90% protein), is low in odour and heavy metal content and has white colour. It has a molecular weight between 2000 – 5000 Da.


Pale yellow – white powder, soluble in cold water and has a neutral taste.

Nutritional value

It is an excellent source of protein and has most of the essential amino acids that humans need.

Characteristics of collagen peptide


Collagen peptide has been hydrolyzed and does not gel at low temperature. It can be added into drinks and soups to increase the intake of protein/collagen.


Collagen peptide stabilizes emulsions, and prevents precipitation or agglomeration of insoluble particles. The mixture remains homogenized.


Collagen peptide forms a layer of film on the surface and it may protect from physical and chemical harm. It has been widely used in skin/ hair-care products.
