Geltor's precision fermentation-derived collagen caters to market demand for animal-free ingredients

May 06, 2021 | Case Study

Collagen and its hydrolyzed derivative gelatin are important structural protein ingredients with downstream applications in many areas, including cosmetics, food, and beverage. Conventional collagen is extracted from bovine or porcine skin and connective tissue. With the growing trend of sustainable ingredient sourcing and consumer preferences for greener ingredients, developers turn to technologies like precision fermentation to meet these market demands. Geltor is one such startup that develops a scalable fermentation platform for producing structural proteins like collagen and elastin.
