For the first time in Europe, innovation leader GELITA will present its new PeptENDURE® collagen peptides for improved endurance performance at Fi Europe in Frankfurt, Germany (November 28-30). GELITA’s broad portfolio of gelatin solutions for confectionery, gummies, and softgels will be another focus theme on stand this year. Visitors who want to learn more about these latest ingredient innovations are invited to attend two presentations by GELITA experts highlighting their potential in the sports nutrition and gummy markets.
Pushing harder, going further
PeptENDURE® will be unveiled for the European market at Fi Europe as the first-ever collagen protein designed to improve endurance performance. As it creates long-term adaptive change in the muscles, it is suitable for those partaking in a range of endurance disciplines.
Manufacturers of sports nutrition supplements can further explore the exciting opportunities for PeptENDURE®, and how it will potentially change the face of endurance sports during a presentation by Martin Walter, Category Manager Healthy Aging and Sports Nutrition, GELITA, on Wednesday, November 29, at 11.30 am in the Showcase Theatre.
GELITA will also be highlighting its ingredients for the production of great-tasting, fortified gummy and confectionery products. With CONFIXX®, manufacturers can produce gummies in a starch-free process that avoids the risk of cross-contamination, protects sensitive active ingredients, and results in optimal texture and mouthfeel. SOLUFORM® PE is designed for the production of great-tasting fruit gummies with high protein content, while SOLUFORM® SR allows for substantial sugar reduction in confectionery products. Completing the line-up is VERISOL® HST, which provides the industry with a science-backed solution for developing effective collagen-rich beauty gummies.
The potential of these customised solutions, and how they can help manufacturers gain a competitive advantage in the market will be revealed in a presentation by Johanna Schmidgall, Global Head of Application Development and New Product Development, and Natalie Leuwer, Category Manager of Food Specialties. It will take place on Wednesday, November 29, at 2.30 pm in the Showcase Theatre.
Visitors to the show will also get to learn about EASYSEAL® – a new pharmaceutical-grade softgel gelatin that improves capsule seams and helps manufacturers significantly reduce leakage.
“Our natural, pure and allergen-free ingredients play a key role in good food, healthy living and technical innovation, and harness the power of science and creativity,” says Oliver Wolf, Marketing EMEIA. “They are proven safe and effective, and can be easily incorporated into a range of products, from gummies to sports nutrition drinks, bars and gels.”

More than 20 sites and a global expert network ensure that state-of-the-art know-how is always available for customers. With 150 years of experience in the field of collagen proteins are the basis of GELITA’s performance. A strong requirement for innovation is the driving force of the family-owned company that is always looking for new solutions for food, pharmaceutical, health & nutrition, as well as for technical applications.
Within the range of collagen proteins, GELITA supplies collagen peptides with proven body-stimulating capabilities as well as tailor-made gelatins. This holistic range of products, in combination with its vast experience in developing solutions for different applications, makes GELITA the first choice for its customers. In today’s landscape of the highest consumer demands, manufacturers of food products have to rely on natural, healthy, non-allergenic ingredients for their development. Collagen proteins from GELITA are the perfect match for this as they fulfill all of these requirements, a particular plus being the fact that they are foodstuffs in their own right (e.g., no E-number). They also possess a set of unique technical and physiological properties.
Besides the traditional use of collagen proteins as natural stabilizers and emulsifiers for countless products, they enable manufacturers to provide their products with other properties, which are becoming more and more important. GELITA has intensified its research in developing solutions for physical mobility, weight management, and beauty from within. www.GELITA.com
