Perfect Collagen Storage: Keep Your Glow Intact!

When it comes to preserving the quality and effectiveness of your collagen powder, storage conditions play a pivotal role. At Nutraviva, we understand the importance of proper storage, and that's why we provide specific guidance on our product labels to help you maintain the freshness and potency of your collagen supplements.

Nutraviva Collagen Hydrolysate powder storage considerations

Nutraviva's Collagen Hydrolysate powder is a nutrient powerhouse. Packed with smaller pre-digested peptides, it outshines other proteins by enabling rapid absorption in the body, ensuring maximum nutrient delivery to your cells. If you're looking to boost your health and nutrition, this is your go-to product.

Once you've received your collagen powder or collagen formula, here's what you need to know about storing it:

Refrigeration considerations: Contrary to common belief, refrigerating your collagen powder is not generally the way to go as it can introduce unwanted moisture.

However, if you live in a high heat and humidity tropical regions like Far North Queensland, the Northern Territory, or North Western Australia cool storage options need to be considered as a cool storage option is required. Storage in the fridge or freezer may be an option, and many customers also choose to include a humidity reducing silica sachet in their powder pantry staples to reduce humidity issues.

Heat and Light Protection: Keep your collagen powder products away from heat and light sources, such as windows or cooking appliances. Heat inside the packaging can create moisture, potentially leading to spoilage.

Pantry Perfection: Optimal storage is in a pantry or cupboard, safely tucked away from heat and light. Always ensure a secure seal after each use to preserve powder freshness. If the seal doesn't lock properly, consider transferring the powder to a sealed tub or zip-lock pouch to prevent moisture access.

The good news? Collagen powder boasts an almost indefinite shelf life when stored under these ideal conditions.

Marine Collagen: Beauty at its Best

When it comes to Marine Collagen and our beauty collagen formula, Simply Beautiful, storage is a crucial factor. Here's what you should do:

Avoid Refrigeration: Just like with other collagen products, refrigeration is generally a no-go. Instead, maintain a cool environment below 20 degrees Celsius, shielded from direct sunlight and humidity.

Odourless and Tasteless: Marine Collagen powder is virtually odorless and tasteless. However, improper storage can lead to a slight odour and spoilage. So, follow the storage guidelines diligently.

Bone Broth Powder

Bone broth powder is another pantry staple that can be sensitive to moisture and heat during storage. Since it's a dehydrated powder, refrigeration is unnecessary. Here's what to do:

Seal the Deal: Keep the tub or pouch securely sealed when not in use.

Cool and Dry: Store it in a cool, dry place, just like your collagen powder counterparts, away from light and heat sources. A pantry or cupboard is your best bet.

Convenient 'On The Go' Nutrition

Many of us appreciate the convenience of collagen and bone broth powders, whether at work or while on holiday. However, it's essential to be mindful of how heat and light can affect their quality. Here are some tips:

Steer Clear of Heat: Don't leave your collagen powders in a hot car or on a desk exposed to warm light sources.

Transportation Consideration: If you need to transport your products and heat exposure is a concern, store them away from windows and consider placing them in an insulated bag.

Workplace Storage: When at work, ensure your powders are stored in a pantry or on your desk, away from light and heat sources.

By following these storage guidelines, you'll unlock the secret to keeping your collagen supplements at their best, preserving your glow and well-being for years to come.
