What is Flavored Collagen Powder?
Flavored collagen protein powder is, well, collagen powder with a boost of flavor!
Yes, unflavored multi collagen is versatile and amazing. But, have you ever:
- gave your morning coffee a boost?
- upped your plain yogurt?
- made the healthiest hot chocolate in the world?
- The list could go on!
Why Flavored Collagen Powders are Popular
Our customers rave about our flavors. Why? Well, we think it’s an easy way to try a collagen powder supplement for the first time.
Flavors are a great starting point for anyone new to the collagen powder world. They are tasty and everyone loves options!Charlie Bailes, Founder
Throw in a scoop to a shaker with water, and boom, collagen deliciousness within a few seconds!
Collagen brands (like us!) will typically offer a few staples to their flavored collagen lineup such as:
- Fruity Berry-ish (we have Strawberry Lemonade)
Brands will also typically roll out a seasonal. We roll out one every Spring, Fall (the world’s only Pumpkin Multi Collagen), and Winter. In addition, we’ve seen these flavors in the collagen powder supplement world:
- Cold Brew
- Cucumber Lime
- Tropical Punch
- Orange Pineapple
- Peach Mango
How to Mix Flavored Collagen Powder
Though you’ll have fewer ways to mix a flavored collagen than an unflavored collagen, you still have plenty of options. Here are 3 ways to mix a flavored collagen protein powder.
H20 — keep it simple! Throw a scoop (or two!) in a shaker bottle with cold water. Though our unflavored multi collagen protein powder 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 traditionalist black coffee drinkers! However, for those looking to add a smooth flavor to your cup of Joe or latte, our vanilla multi collagen powder is very tasty.
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
We can’t speak on behalf of every collagen supplement company, but many will use a combo of the following ingredients to obtain a 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
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 you 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
- Citric Acid
- Silicon Dioxide (blocks moisture to prevent powder clumping)
What to look for in a Flavored Collagen 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)
