Through precise molecular analysis of amino acid sequences (the structural units of proteins) the Belgium-based company TCI has been able to reproduce the complete structure of collagen found in humans. In this way, the company has emulated nature, using the sequence to produce it from plant organisms. Its purity and quality has been recognized by beauty brands and food supplements. Cision magazine highlights that in recent years awareness has grown in environment protection and health among consumers, who have turned to collagen produced from plant sources.
