Vital Collagen Collagen Products are guaranteed from 100% grassfed and grass finished cows that are raised,
on lush grasslands in Brazil. The cattle industry in Brazil is based on perennial tropical grass pasture systems. We have taken great care to ensure that the pasture size for each animal is one animal per 2.67 acres. These standards are in alignment with the Global Animal Partnership 5-step animal welfare rating standards… Brazil also has a law (Decree No 57 824 Article 4(4)) which prohibits the addition of hormones to feed…They eat their natural diet – grass, and receive plenty of open space and sunshine. We believe in providing our animals with an environment that nature intended, and the result is a high quality protein that is natural and pure. (source)
Additionally, the processing of the hides involves using an alkaline solution of lime and water, which is heated to only 190º F. This is not a high heat process and it ensures a fresh tasting product.
