WHAT IS COLLAGEN COFFEE?
Cast your mind back to 2014, Japan landed a space probe on a comet, Germany handed Brazil a 7-1 drubbing at the World Cup and BULK POWDERS® had just launched our first iteration of Complete Protein Coffee™. This was the UK market’s first experience of a protein coffee that didn’t require endless mixing, microwaving, further mixing and overall feelings of disappointment.
When we originally brought this product to market, it was made with a heat-stable whey protein isolate that mixed instantly with hot water, which sadly got discontinued after a couple of years. We tried every single heat-stable whey protein that suppliers could throw at us, but sadly to no avail, Complete Protein Coffee™ was no more.
Fast forward to 2019 and for better or for worse, a lot has happened. One thing falling in the ‘better’ category is Collagen Coffee becoming the latest offering in our ACTIVE FOODS™ range. It is made simply with Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides, Colombian Fairtrade Coffee and MCTs. On the surface it may just appear to be another protein coffee, however the beauty comes with how it mixes and tastes. All you need to do is add one 25g scoop to your favourite mug, pour over hot water from your kettle and let the powder dissolve. You’ll have a ready-to-drink protein coffee in seconds that provides 18g protein and 100mg caffeine, about the same as a regular high street coffee for a fraction of the price.
The hydrolysed collagen peptides in Collagen Coffee are composed of Type 1 and Type 3 collagen and are obtained from bovine hides. Our collagen has a particularly neutral flavour, making it suitable for use in this application. Collagen has a different amino acid profile to dairy proteins; instead of Tryptophan and Cysteine, it provides Hydroxyproline and Hydroylysine.
