Pork bones are an essential ingredient for some traditional broths and savory dishes, such as hot pots, noodle soups, and sauces. But lately, in many markets, supply and prices of pork bones have been unstable. If consistently sourcing pork bone products or locking in stable pricing are challenges you’re facing, Sonac has a solution for you.
The solution to a short supply: QBoost Pork Hydro-P Premium
In some markets, such as in Asia, the demand for pork bone products is increasing. The popularity of hot pots is growing and more and more restaurants are seeking a standard, stable, hassle-free bone broth instead of cooking from raw bones. Also, restaurant chains are shifting to operating out of centralized kitchens versus individual on-site kitchens, which also fuels demand for a convenient, stable bone broth.
QBoost Pork Hydro-P Premium is an ideal solution for savory soup, broth, and sauce processors. Hydro-P Premium is a hydrolyzed collagen protein powder made from pork bones. To make it, we extract the collagen from porcine bones, break it down into shorter peptides—which makes it fully soluble—and dry it into a powder.
When Hydro-P Premium is added to soups, broths, and sauces, the protein doesn’t thicken the sauce, but adds flavor. Also, because it’s collagen it is sometimes easier than pork bones to import into some markets. In other markets Hydro-P Premium is appealing because it helps clean up the ingredient list, as it can be labeled as “bouillon,” “stock,” or “broth” and replaces additives and other E number ingredients.

Pork bones aren’t the only raw ingredient that can be sourced to make hydrolyzed collagen. Pork skins can also be used, and because pork skin prices can fluctuate significantly, the cost of hydrolyzed collagen made from the skins rises too.
Another reason for fluctuating prices is the rising demand for collagen for cosmetic products and other nutraceuticals. Other hydrolyzed collagen processors have branched out into these high-value markets and have raised their prices accordingly.
Sonac has a worldwide presence and established access to raw meat. At Sonac, we only use raw bones to make Hydro-P Premium. We’ve dedicated ourselves to the meat and savory market, and we continue to invest in various stages of production. These factors increase our product availability and keep prices stable.
