I started taking daily collagen peptides in July of 2017 and ended up posting about my findings after 30 days. In the Instagram world, with the circle of folks I follow, I saw 2 prevalent brands jump out at me as the leaders in the collagen game.
I started out trying Vital Proteins, and saw Further Food as another option, and was interested to try it to see if I noticed any differences between the two.
These two brands are fairly comparable when it comes to their collagen peptide tubs.
- Vital Proteins retails at $25.00 for a 10 oz tub, which shakes out to about $2.50 per ounce.
- Further Food retails at $19.95 for an 8 oz tub, which is $2.49 per ounce.
So, they’re almost exact.
- Vital Proteins sources their pasture-raised, grass fed cattle from Brazil.
- Further Food sources their cattle from South America.
Again, almost exact.
Being that collagen is virtually flavorless and odorless, both have no taste, which makes them perfect to stir into cold or hot beverages!
Amino Acid Composition:
Both Vital Proteins and Further Food include a table on their labels that spell out the composition of the amino acids in their particular brand of collagen peptides.
Listed on their labels, the protein content of each are:
- 20 grams of protein for every 2 scoops of Vital Proteins
- 18 grams of protein for every 2 scoops of Future Foods
They both come in large tubs that are great to keep in the kitchen to add to your smoothies, coffee, tea, etc. However, lugging around a huge tub of collagen peptides doesn’t always make sense.
Vital Proteins makes single serving packets, making it super convenient to bring with you on a trip or to the office.
All in all, these two collagen peptides are almost identical. The scoop size in the Further Food tub is slightly smaller than the one in Vital Proteins, but other than that, I see no real differences between the two. I use them interchangeably, with the same exact results.
If you’re interested in purchasing either (or both!) you can use my links here from Amazon. You can also use CALLIE10 on the Further Food website for 10% off any product.
