I am starting a daily routine of adding bovine collagen to my hot bone broth, and I'm wondering... is collagen heat sensitive?
Will the amino acids in glycine degrade in heat? I heat my bone broth in the microwave for 1-2minutes, and then afterwards I add about a teaspoon of the bovine collagen to the mix. Lastly, I add a squirt of lemon because I heard Ben Greenfield say that it increases the collagen absorbability.

Um, making bone broth is how you extract collagen out of bones. :) You don't need to add collagen to your bone broth. This is kind of like those "Yo, dawg, I heard you like collagen, so I put collagen in your collagen" memes.
That said, pro tip: if you wan tot dissolve collagen powder, you should do so in cold water, or else it will clump. Once dissolved, it's fine to add hot water to it, or add it to hot water.
