Gelatin extraction often uses hide, skin, cartilage, bones and tissue from cattle, lamb, chicken and pigs.
Gelatin manufacturing is a controlled hydrolysis of the collagen to achieve some desired functional properties. Enzymatic hydrolysis can benefit the process in the bone cleaning, soaking, and liming stages of gelatin production.
Capacity increase and cost reduction in soaking and liming steps increase the gelatin yield. The enzymatic process improves the raw material quality by having cleaner bones. A controlled hydrolysis of the gelatin result in a good yield and the desired bloom strength.
