Can collagen be vegan?  
Yes, no, maybe.... Let me try and explain.
Collagen is a structural protein found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage of the human body and animals.  It is the most abundant structural protein in the body but as you age your collagen production naturally declines and collagen becomes fragmented.  This contributes to signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dry, sagging skin and  reductions in bone strength.  Over recent years, collagen supplementation has become popular to boost collagen levels in the body and support structural strength.

Strictly speaking, collagen comes from animal or fish source.  Collagen supplements are the structural proteins from these sources that have been hydrolysed and made into a fine powder.  Up until now, vegan collagen products have been 'collagen builders' a set of amino acids to encourage your body to make collagen.
We can however now introduce 'Vollagen'  Vollagen is a vegan product with the identical amino acid profile of human collagen.  Using a unique specific method of fermentation desired ratio and blend of amino acids can be created as opposed to simply combining individual amino acids which exhibit very low solubility.  Vollagen supplements have been found to have the benefits of animal collagen products but you can be assured that it is free from contamination, ethically and sustainably used.

To celebrate the introduction of Vollagen products to the Amaranth range we are offering 15% off during April
