Looking at two different manufacturing methods for collagen peptides: hydrolyzed vs lyophilized (freeze dried), I read that hydrolyzed results in a hydrophobic biolayer molecule collagen peptide.
There is a big difference between types of collagen or natural collagen available on the market. The main collagen sold is cheap hydroyzed collagen, which is produced by extreme heat. And the opposite end of the scale if lyophilized collagen which is freeze dried and more delicate expensive processing. The collagen known as natural collagen retains its triple helix and is an active collagen very similar to that of humans. This natural collagen is derived from fish skins of fresh water fish like silver carp.
Lyophilization process: https://www.rdmag.com/article/2017/03/lyophilization-basics
While this may be quickly absorbed through the GI tract, thus "FASTEST ABSORBENT", does this hydrophobic biolayer hinder hydrolized collagen's ability to be broken down into amino acids - which is what we want out of them, right? Or is it that lypholization retains its triple helix?
I'm not entirely clear on all the terminology, but essentially I would like to know which one is actually better and used by the body, rather than marketing "fastest absorbed by the body".
