Gelatine is a pure protein derived from hydrolysis of collagen inside bovine hides and/or bones. It consists of 85-90 % protein, 10-12% water and 2-3% mineral and has a nutritional value of approximately 350-400 kcal in 100 grams.
Gelatine is not considered as an additive in European Union Food Safety Codex and Turkish Food Codex, and it contains nine out of ten essential amino acids required for human body with the exception of tryptophan. Since gelatine is a pure protein, it is not been labeled with E code, which is assigned to food additives. Gelatine is a very important element for a balanced diet and it is free of cholesterol.
The most distinguishing property of gelatine is its thermo-reversibility. When a gelatine formulation is heated it liquefies and then gels when it is cooled down. As this process is quickly achieved it can be repeated without any major changes to the quality.
