Gelatine is a pure protein obtained from hydrolysis of collagen from animal hides and/or bones. It is formed of 85-90% protein and the rest is water, and it has 350-400kcal nutritional value in 100 grams.

According to European Union Food Codex and Turkish Food Codex, gelatine is not an additive, and includes all essential animo acids for human body with exception of tryptophan.

This is the reason why gelatine does not have an E code which is given to all additives

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.
