"Rather than cure, current medical treatments for osteoarthritis only address the symptoms such as inflammation and pain," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Kaushik Ghosh. "FORTIGEL® represents the first ingredient in both the food and drug industries, which can actually result in cartilage rejuvenation, thus providing a practical treatment for osteoarthritis."

Manufactured through a special enzymatic process, FORTIGEL® is a specially purified protein containing 'bioactive collagen peptides®' (protein of the connective tissue in animals). A pure protein, FORTIGEL® effectively combats the wear and tear of joints brought about by age and stress.

FORTIGEL® does not contain gluten, purine, tryptophan, GMO and cholesterol, and thus is not associated with the risk of any allergy or side effects. Its neutral taste and odour, coupled with its excellent solubility, make it ideal for fortification in a variety of food products. Being a natural ingredient, FORTIGEL® is ideally aligned with the 'health and wellness' trend in the food industry.

"FORTIGEL® is also characterised by a high degree of bio availability, which ensures value-chain feasibility for food manufacturers," remarks Ghosh. "Thus, food products containing FORTIGEL® can safely be positioned for joint pain arising due to osteoarthritis, obesity, old age and sports activities."

FORTIGEL® has also been approved by the FDA with the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status on account of its proven health benefits and safety parameters. It also currently represents the only ingredient to be authorised by the Collagen Research Institute (CRI), Germany. It has been certified by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) as well as by the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) process.

"The USP of FORTIGEL® is the complete set of clinical data that provides testimony of its efficiency in the joint health segment," states Ghosh. "Meticulous research spanning three decades has yielded authentic evidence supporting FORTIGEL®'s effectiveness in regenerating joint cartilage, improving mobility and reducing pain."

At present, FORTIGEL® is the only ingredient to have a 'cartilage regeneration' claim with solid proof to back it up. The company is currently analysing the effect of FORTIGEL® against osteoporosis and represents the only viable natural treatment for the condition.

Gelita has maintained a competitive price for its breakthrough ingredient FORTIGEL®. Despite being the pioneer in this segment, the company has chosen to follow a 'price-to-value' strategy, rather than a premium pricing model. The competitive pricing of FORTIGEL® has made it an affordable alternative to more expensive traditional osteoarthritis treatments.

The Frost and Sullivan Award for Joint Health Ingredient of the Year is presented to the company that has demonstrated excellence in new ingredient development and launch within its industry. The recipient company has shown tremendous innovation by launching a broad line of emerging products and technologies.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
