Improving mobility

With a large proportion of elderly citizens, China’s incidence of osteoporotic fractures will probably double by 2035². It is expected that the demand for products which can help to provide bone and joint health benefits will rise. Rousselot is an official Nutrition Supporter of 2015 World Osteoporosis Day and will be highlighting its Peptan range of clean-label collagen peptides at its booth and the studies showing Peptan’s ability to improve bone mineral density and reduce bone loss³. In addition, Peptan can be easily combined with ingredients traditionally used for their benefits on bone health such as calcium and vitamin D.

Easily digestible, Peptan can also be used in a variety of applications, some of which will be available for visitors to sample on the day. Beauty drinks and tablets, along with mobility boosting sticks of Peptan powder that dissolve to form a drink, will be on offer, giving manufacturers a taste of the products that can be achieved by using this versatile ingredient.

In addition to the collagen peptides, Rousselot experts will be on the stand to explain the benefits of its gelatin products. Able to boost protein content whilst maintaining the texture of the original product, Rousselot gelatin is an effective solution to help food and beverage manufacturers create convenient products aimed at boosting the protein intake of the aging population. On stand samples will include soft nutrition capsules, showcasing easy to swallow end products for the burgeoning elderly nutrition market.
