What Does Collagen Taste Like?

What does collagen taste like? Get the lowdown on the Absolute Collagen taste and how to enhance the flavour in this helpful article.

With our liquid collagen supplements, you’ve got the optimal amount of collagen to take in a day, fitting in one convenient daily dose.

However, when we speak to our customers about the myriad of benefits to taking collagen, we hear one common question: does collagen taste bad?

Well, we’re here to put those worries to rest! In this article, we will talk through the Absolute Collagen taste, as well as claims that ‘Absolute Collagen tastes disgusting’. 

Let’s start busting some myths!

What does Absolute Collagen taste like?

With our liquid collagen sachets, you can enjoy 8,000mg of premium marine collagen, a helping of vitamin C*, and a dollop of delicious natural flavouring. It’s everything you need to enjoy the benefits of collagen in one small, but mighty package!

But what does our collagen taste like? And does our marine collagen taste fishy?

Well, while some Absoluters have reported a slightly bitter taste, there’s no fishy smells or tastes when you tuck into our liquid collagen. In fact, we offer a mango and mandarin flavouring (and Absoluter favourite!) to ensure you receive the best tasting collagen possible. 

*Each sachet of Absolute Collagen contains 60 mg of Vitamin C, which is 75% of your daily Nutrient Reference Value. Enjoy a daily dose of Absolute Collagen as part of a balanced, healthy diet and active lifestyle.

Mrs Harding, one of our customers, also waxes lyrical about the Absolute Collagen taste: “I’ve been using Absolute Collagen for over a year and my hair, skin, and nails are in the best condition ever. I would recommend it to anyone. I love the raspberry taste!”

Where does the Absolute Collagen taste come from?

Even though some competitors claim that ‘Absolute Collagen tastes disgusting’ when talking about capsules vs liquid collagen, we (politely) disagree!

As we’ve mentioned, some Absoluters report a slightly bitter taste when first trying our sachets, but they quickly get used to the flavour. What’s more, the Absolute Collagen taste lets you properly enjoy the benefits of marine liquid collagen, which has been scientifically proven to absorb 1.5 times faster than other types of collagen.

So, while other collagen brands will claim their tablets are flavourless and ‘easier to take’, you just don’t see the same results as you would with our liquid collagen!

How can you make collagen taste better?

Here at Absolute Collagen, we understand that everyone has different tastes and preferences – especially when it comes to their food and drink. That’s why we’ve got a few suggestions for how you can enhance the Absolute Collagen taste – as well as implement our supplement more seamlessly into your day-to-day routine!

Take a look, below, for our three favourite ways to enjoy the best tasting collagen:

1. Blend collagen into smoothies

If you’re worried about the marine collagen taste, then consider whipping out your trusty blender! After all, who doesn’t love a delicious smoothie?

And thanks to our handy sachets, it’s so simple to add collagen to the smoothie of your choice. Maybe you’d like to experience the Absolute Collagen taste of a Blueberry Boost? Or perhaps you’d prefer to complement the marine collagen taste with a Pink Raspberry concoction?

To create the best tasting collagen smoothie, you just need to see what fruit and veg work together best in the blender!

2. Mix collagen into your coffee

For many of us, the day doesn’t start until we’ve had our first cup of coffee. But did you know that you can combine the Absolute Collagen taste with your morning brew for a delicious pick-me-up?

That’s right, you can mix our collagen into your coffee! The only small caveat is that your coffee should be no hotter than 150°, otherwise the collagen proteins start to break down and become less effective.

So, whether you want a collagen cappuccino or a mocha with that Absolute Collagen taste, experiment with your morning cuppa!

3. Add collagen to your breakfast recipes

In addition to smoothies and coffee making collagen taste better, you can also add the Absolute Collagen taste to the most important meal of the day: your breakfast!

You don’t need to get fancy with your recipes, either. You can simply add the Absolute Collagen taste to a bowl of porridge. Sprinkle in some berries and pistachios, and you’ve got a great way to start the day!

If you do want to try something completely new, however, try combining the marine collagen taste with a yoghurt parfait. All you need is Greek yoghurt, fresh strawberries, granola, and – of course – a helping of liquid collagen. Perfect!

Our customers Jon & Christy-Anne certainly agree about how to enhance the Absolute Collagen taste: “I personally love the flavours of Absolute Collagen. As a health supplement I think it is fabulous. It has a consistency similar to honey, which is not a problem for me. But I know some people add it to yoghurt, smoothies or spread it on toast to make it easier to take.”

Now you know what Absolute Collagen tastes like – and how you can enhance the marine collagen taste – you’re ready to start shopping for our liquid collagen supplements. Alternatively, you can find so much more info about collagen on our insightful blog!
