It is virtually tasteless and therefore will not have an impact on the flavor our your bar.
Who should use it?
It’s a great dietary addition for anyone but is particularly helpful for those who are active and are looking to help the body repair broken down muscle and connective tissue.
Also, as we age the body naturally produces less collagen and therefore increasing dietary sources becomes more important later in life.
How can I Add Collagen to my Protein Bar?
It’s available as a ‘Booster’ option on both the ‘gourmet’ and ‘cheat day’ custom protein bar pages.
Although it isn’t currently offered as a ‘base’ ingredient, adding it as a ‘Booster’ to your bar will increase overall protein levels by 1-2 grams per bar.
