COLLAGEN HAZELNUT CREAMER
Q: What is collagen?
A: Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body, accounting for about a third of its protein composition. Collagen production naturally declines with age. Collagen may be sourced from animals and fish and made into edible powders.
Q: What is the best way to take collagen?
A: You can take it any time of day, on its own or with a meal. It can be mixed into hot or cold liquids or added to smoothies. You can also take it before or after workouts.
Q: Where does your collagen come from?
A: Our collagen comes from cattle ranches in South America. While the cows are grass-fed for most of their lives and traditionally raised on pasture, we chose to remove the grass-fed claim from our labels in 2018 due to some retailers requiring documentation showing 100% grass-fed, which is not attainable in the collagen supply chain at this time. Be assured that we strive to source high-quality collagen peptides from well-established manufacturers with high-quality standards. This includes consistent testing of heavy metals and product purity in order to comply with stringent regulatory guidelines. In addition, we have worked hard to source collagen with the best flavor profile and ability to dissolve in liquids.
Q: I have an allergy, is the collagen manufactured in a facility that contains allergens?
A: The line that the collagen is manufactured on is in a shared facility and on a shared line with all 8 major allergens. They have an allergen control program and specific cleaning and testing protocols to avoid allergen residues.
Q: How long does my Primal Kitchen Collagen product last?
A: Each canister or stick pack tray has an expiration date printed on the bottom package. Please store in a cool, dry place, tightly sealed.
Q: Why isn't your collagen 100% Grass-Fed?
A: There simply isn't enough volume possible for our needs from suppliers that may provide 100% grass-fed. Most of the major collagen companies are not able to provide certified 100% grass-fed. Although we push to get a better assurance of grass-fed, it is not enough to provide an absolute claim.
