price: contact company for price

Is all gelatin the same?

No. Gelatin is tested and “Graded”

according to strength. The Grade is based on

the “Bloom” test and the higher the Bloom

number the higher the gel set. Gelatin is

usually priced according to the gelling

ability; consequently the higher the bloom,

the higher the price.

Gelatin can also be classified according to

its ability to meet various standards.

Gelatin that meets certain standards may be

categorized as Food grade, U.S.P National

Formulary U.S.P./N.F. and Technical, etc.

What is "Bloom" ?

The measurement of force, in grams, required

to depress a standard plunger 4mm into the

surface of a 6.67% gelatin sample at 10oC

(50oF) The firmer the set of gelatin, the

higher the bloom strength.

Gelatin consists of?

Approximately 86% protein, 12% moisture & 2%


The difference between Gelatin & Hydrolyzed


Hydrolyzed Gelatin does not gel. (Hydrolyzed

gelatin has had its gelling function

enzymatically removed.)

Melting point?

Temperature at which gelatin initially melts

into a liquid solution. Moisture Percentage

of water driven off from gelatin after

heating the gelatin to 105oC for 17 hours.

Residue on Ignition?

Percentage of residue after reducing the

gelatin to an ash at 550oC.

Setting point?

Temperature at which gelatin initially forms

a gel.

What is Gelatin?

Gelatin is a protein and in aqueous solutions

is a hydrophilic colloid.

Gelatin derived from an acid-treated

precursor is known as Type A, and

gelatin derived from an alkali-treated

precursor is known as Type B.

What is Gelatin made from?

Gelatin is obtained by the partial hydrolysis

of collagen derived from

the skin, white connective tissue and bones

of animals. The top four

commercial sources of gelatin are Cowhide

Splits, Bones (ossein) Pork

Skin, and Fish Skin. Gelatin does not occur

freely in nature, and

cannot be recovered from horns, hoofs and

other non-collagen containing

parts of vertebrate animals. There are no

plant sources of gelatin, and

there is no chemical relationship between

gelatin and other materials

referred to as vegetable gelatin, such as

seaweed extracts.

How is it made?

An explanation of the production of gelatins

will help in understanding

the properties and the characteristics which

exist among several types

and grades.

Gelatin is derived from collagen, an

insoluble fibrous protein thatoccurs in

vertebrates and is the principal constituent

of connectivetissues and bones.

Collagen is distinctive in that it contains

an unusually high level ofthe cyclic amino

acids; proline and hydroxyproline.

Collagen consists of three helical

polypeptide chains wound around each other

and connected by intermolecular cross links.

Gelatin is recovered from collagen by


There are veralvarieties of gelatin, the

composition of which dependson the source of

collagen and the hydrolytic treatment used.
