Quick Summary

Flavored collagen powder is simply unflavored/colorless collagen powder with added flavoring such as stevia, natural flavors, and a few others. They are a great option for those new to collagen because they can simply be added to water in a shaker bottle and drank. Most collagen brands will offer chocolate, vanilla, and some sort of fruity berry option year-round. Some will offer seasonal flavors, such as Pumpkin in the Fall. Water, coffee, lattes, and food are popular ways to take flavored collagen powder. Check labels for no sugar or artificial flavors, non-GMO, manufacturing in a GMP facility, and heavy metal testing.

What is Flavored Collagen Powder?

Flavored collagen protein powder is, well, collagen powder with a boost of flavor!

How to Mix Flavored Collagen Powder

Though you’ll have fewer ways to mix flavored collagen than unflavored collagen, you still have plenty of options. Here are 3 ways to mix a flavored collagen protein powder.

1. Water

H20 — keep it simple! Throw a scoop (or two!) in a shaker bottle with cold water. Though our unflavored multi collagen peptides is versatile, it’s not the best straight with water. Hot water of course works too — healthy hot chocolate anyone?

2. Coffee or Lattes

Flavor your coffee & lattes. Not for those traditional black coffee drinkers! However, for those looking to add a smooth flavor to your cup of Joe or latte, nearly all our flavors (except strawberry lemonade) are very tasty in your beloved morning pick-me-up drink.

3. Food

Boost your food. Try in cookies, brownies, smoothies, yogurt, pancakes, and much more! These collagen pumpkin bars are to die for.

Flavored Collagen Powder Ingredients

Stevia is common sweetener used to flavor collagen powder
Stevia is a common sweetener used to flavor collagen powder

We can’t speak on behalf of every collagen supplement company, but many will use a combo of the following ingredients to obtain quality flavored collagen naturally without artificial sweeteners. Let’s start with Stevia.


Stevia is an excellent way to sweeten collagen powder because:

  • It’s natural, unlike other sugar substitutes, and comes from the leaves of stevia plants
  • Does not get fermented, so it has no impact on blood sugar or cause intestinal inflammation
  • Is a low FODMAP food — important for those with IBS

Does Collagen Break a Fast? YES, but it’s complicated

Natural Flavors

When you see “Natural Flavors” on a label, it means that the flavoring materials come from a constituent of the flavor itself. For example, if you wanted to flavor something vanilla and created flavor material from a constituent of vanilla itself, that would be called a “natural flavor.” If it is created from scratch, it would be an “artificial” flavor.

In addition to stevia and natural flavors, here are other ingredients you’ll typically see in flavored collagen powder:

  • Monk Fruit
  • Cacao/Cocoa Powder
  • Citric Acid
  • Silicon Dioxide (blocks moisture to prevent powder clumping)

What to Look for in a Flavored Collagen Powder

Heavy metal testing for flavored collagen
Heavy metal testing is key to choosing a quality flavored collagen protein powder

Check your labels and ensure the flavored collagen boasts the following:

  • No Sugar
  • No Artificial Flavors
  • Non-GMO Ingredients
  • Grass-fed Beef, Wild Caught Fish, Cage-Free Chickens
  • Manufactured in a GMP facility
  • Ingredients you can pronounce and understand
  • Heavy Metal testing (more about collagen and heavy metals)

We believe nearly everyone should take collagen, as the pros of collagen outweigh the cons. If you need more help in choosing collagen in general, here’s what to look for in a collagen powder.
