Gelatine at Glance

  • 1. Protein, mineral salts and water

    Gelatine is a pure, natural protein made from animal raw materials that contain collagen. It consists of 84 to 90 per cent protein and 2 per cent mineral salts, with water making up the rest. Gelatine is classified as a foodstuff and, is not a food additive.As a natural food, gelatine fulfils therefore, among other reasons, the requirements of the clean label products, the demand for which is steadily growing.

  • 2. Great value for the organism

    Without protein, there would be no human life. Over longer periods of time, the human metabolism can replace some nutrients, such as carbohydrates. Protein, however, is needed by the human body. Interestingly the human body, like other mammals, consists of approx. 30 percent collagen if water and blood is deducted. Gelatine is pure collagen and is therefore the ideal fit for the human body.

  • 3. Versatile in use

    The most common usage of gelatine is edible gelatine followed by pharmaceutical, photographic and technical gelatine. What makes gelatine so unique is its remarkable number of functional properties. These include the ability to gel, thicken, stabilize, foam or bind water. In addition, gelatine is 100 per cent natural and is cholesterol, purine and fat free. It does not contain any substances listed as allergen in official regulations. Another reason for being an ideal clean label ingredient.
