An innovation in the collagen space21 Jun 2018 Rousselot’s Peptan brand has launched Peptan IIm, an all-round hydrolyzed collagen type II matrix, containing both type II collagen and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in one single ingredient. According to the company, it is specifically designed to boost joint health and is suitable for use in pills and capsules due to its low daily dosage. “Peptan IIM is produced from cartilage, so it is a hydrolyzed cartilage product. It is a natural matrix product containing hydrolyzed collagen and GAGs. Those are two molecules that are present in the cartilage matrix and we extract them into one product,” Janne Prawitt, Scientific Director, Peptan at Rousselot, tells NutritionInsight at the show.
