Pork collagen peptides powder

Pork is an important part of the human diet in many European, American, and Asian countries. Although not often serving as a claim ingredient in pet food, it is used in many pet food formulations. Of the many different pork-based ingredients available to the pet food industry, IQI focuses on specialty pork-based ingredients for pet food. Programs for pig production pay special attention to animal welfare, which is becoming more and more important to consumers and pet parents.

Research shows that collagen, especially in its so-called hydrolysate form, can prevent the destruction of cartilage through the production of macromolecules and suppression of catabolic enzymes. It also shows that omega-3 long-chain fatty acids combined with collagen peptides can reduce inflammation in the joints – specifically as part of osteoarthritis. Pure pork collagen peptides, which are derived from pork skin or pork bone collagen and produced in a European human-grade facility, can help improve skin and coat condition, and reduce mobility problems related to bones, muscles, and cartilage.
