Around a third of your natural protein composition is collagen. But the human body still finds good use for more of it, whether to reinforce joints or aid digestion. Collagen powder processing breaks the chains of amino acids into smaller units, allowing them to be consumed at higher concentrations without changing your diet.

Treat the raw material with mild chemicals to cleave the collagen

Collagen is, by nature, cross-linked to other molecules in the living organism. Freeing it up before extraction will increase the substance purity of your collagen powder processing line.

Pre-treating the material with a solution of diluted chemicals breaks up the tissue. But a partial hydrophilization afterward ensures that collagen chains are held together. Delicate organisms like porcine skins may be immersed in acidic agents. More rigid materials such as bovine ossein require a more aggressive pre-treatment using alkaline solutions.

Organic acids achieve better chemical hydrolyzation than inorganic acids

Hydrolyzing your pre-treated material can be done using both organic and inorganic acids. The former types, however, show more efficiency in solubilizing collagen.

Once filtered from residues, the liquid collagen is typically precipitated with sodium chloride to obtain a powder. Purification is the final but critical step in your collagen powder process. The material is dialyzed in acetic acid and distilled water ideally replaced at 12-hour intervals.

Activate enzymes to reduce collagen powder processing time

Biological hydrolyzation offers an attractive extraction method, particularly in the food industry. Products made with enzymatically hydrolyzed collagen report a higher concentration of beneficial nutrients after ingestion.

This technique solubilizes collagen in an acetic acid mixture containing enzymes. The method accelerates the process with lower salt content. Although the method incurs a higher processing cost, it leads to higher yield and lower waste.

Marine collagen mitigates health risks associated with animal-based collagen

Fish provide an alternative source for collagen powder processing. By-products such as scales, skin, and bones contain an appreciable amount of this protein that can be safely extracted. Marine collagen fibers tend to be less intertwined and more fragile than other animals, making acid pre-treatment more suitable.

Fish-based collagen overcomes concerns such as disease transmissibility associated with cattle or poultry. But with a low denaturation temperature of 25–30 ◦C, the properties of the substance can be disrupted by average body temperatures.
