Our Approach to Custom Formulation

Pro-tip from our Senior Flavorist - Robin J. Rusinko

When choosing flavors for sports nutrition powders, look for fruits that complement the natural acidity of the powder, such as citrus or berry flavors. Green powders,  may be flavored with virtually anything, such as mango/vanilla, watermelon, or a tropical blend.  Plant proteins generally don't have citrus flavors because they lack acidity and have a heavy, frothy, and fibrous texture. Instead, chocolate, vanilla, and dessert flavors are often used.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the main source of collagen? 

Bones and skin from beef cattle, hogs, chicken and fish are the most common natural sources of collagen. 

Manufacturers make collagen ingredients by breaking down the raw collagen sources into hydrolyzed collagen, which involves the following steps: 

  • Demineralization. 
  • Collagen extraction from gelatin 
  • Enzymatic or acid hydrolysis to obtain hydrolyzed collagen 
  • Ion exchange 
  • Filtration 
  • Evaporation 
  • Sterilization 
  • Drying 


No. Stomach acids help to break down collagen into smaller molecules (collagen peptides and amino acids) to facilitate absorption and utilization by the body.
