Norland Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen is manufactured from collagen which is the principal protein found in skin and bones. Animal collagen is typically extracted from bovine or porcine skin while our fish collagen is produced from the skin of deep water, ocean fish such as cod, haddock and pollock. Since the hydrolyzed (hydrolysed) collagen is manufactured from the skins of kosher fish, it is able to meet strict kosher standards.

Norland Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen is hydrolyzed with acid and then further hydrolyzed with a food grade enzyme to further break down the molecular weight. No genetically modified materials are used in this product or in any of our Fish Gelatins. After filtering, purification and concentration, the HFC is sterilized with steam injection and spray dried.

The HFC has a high protein content, is very water soluble and has no off odor or taste. It can be used as a protein additive in nutraceutical, cosmetic or food applications and will meet the purity requirements of the United States, European and Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
