What’s Premium about Meiji Amino Collagen Powder Premium?
Meiji Amino Collagen is one of the popular collagen brands in Japan. They have two types – Regular type in the pink package and Premium type in the golden package. I have always wondered about how “premium” the Meiji Amino Collagen Powder Premium is, about what the difference is from the Regular type.
So I tried Regular type for about one week then tried Premium type for another week to compare those two types. If you are interested in my review of Regular type, you can read this article.
How ‘Premium’? – The difference of the taste and smell
Meiji Amino Collagen Powder Premium looks pretty the same, but the first thing I noticed is its smell. I could notice the unique collagen smell when I opened the package of the Regular type, but there is less collagen smell from the Premium type.
The biggest reason why some people don’t like taking collagen is its smell. I honestly recommend trying Meiji Amino Collagen Powder Premium especially those who believe that collagen powder has unpleasant smell.
Last time I reviewed on Meiji Amino Collagen Regular, I compared the smell and taste with cold and hot coffee. I felt it was not the best choice to eat it with hot coffee because it made the collagen smell stronger. However, Premium type doesn’t seem to affect hot coffee.
So I made a new challenge to mix it with yoghurt.
Premium type dissolves easily in yoghurt (As shown in the second image) and it just tasted as yoghurt.
Personally, I feel I can continue the Premium type on daily basis as I often drink coffee or eat yoghurt for breakfast.
How ‘Premium’? – Beauty-support benefits included
So, what’s premium in other areas of the Meiji Amino Collagen Powder?
It includes some Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic acid and ceramide, which are not included in Regular type. Those help you to keep the moisture in your skin and body.
According to a survey by Meiji, 80% of those who have tried Meiji Amino Collagen Premium say they would purchase it again. 70% also answered that they felt the results within 9 days since they started to take it.
The Amino Collagen Can type comes with a spoon designed to measure exactly 7g, which is the recommended amount to intake per day.
For the first purchase, you should get Can type because Refill type doesn’t have the spoon.
