Gelita granted health claim in Japan for Verisol peptide

Gelita has been awarded a Foods with Function Claim (FFC) for skin elasticity in Japan for its Verisol collagen peptides.

Food and beverage manufacturers using these bioactive collagen peptides can now claim on their packaging that “This product contains Verisol Collagen Peptides.Verisol is reported to maintain skin elasticity and supports skin health” after submitting their product for approval as food with function claim.

Function claims are based on scientific evidence, proving their beneficial health effects and safety.

The Japanese FFC health claim category was introduced in April 2015 in order to improve availability of products that are clearly labelled with certain nutritional or health functions.

Gelita Japan general manager Koji Tanabe said: “In Japan, collagen peptides are already well known as a ‘beauty from within’ ingredient. However, the granting of this health claim is a very important milestone for the market.

“Manufacturers can directly show consumers the proven health benefits of Verisol collagen peptides on their food labels. On top of that, the recommended daily dosage of 2.5g per day and good technological properties are also attracting new business developments with Verisol in Japan.”

Pure collagen peptides stimulate the fibroblasts in the dermis which substantially increases the synthesis of collagen, elastin and proteoglycans – all of which are essential for skin elasticity.

As a result, the epidermis is supported from beneath and skin sagging is prevented.
