Gelatin applications in pharmaceuticals
Soft gel manufacturers have found that the rigidity and elasticity of Gelco pharmaceutical gelatin allows the manufacture of capsules that are flexible and strong enough to prevent breakage and leakage during the filling stage.
The low metal content and non-reactive properties of Gelco gelatin offer unlimited possibilities for soft gel products.
The gelatin for hard capsules offered by Gelco is a unique product that makes it possible to eliminate the need for formulating, mixing and the quality control of different raw materials (gelatins).
The ability to produce hard capsules with a single gelatin allows for high throughput per machine, while facilitating and accelerating drying.
The gelatin coatings hide unpleasant tastes and odors and provide longer shelf life by protecting the medicine from air, light and moisture.
Gelatin is used to wrap the tablet in a film that prevents deterioration and mistreatment of the product.
Industries involved in the production of high and low oil concentration emulsions have found that Gelco Pharmaceutical Gelatin acts as an ideal stabilizer due to its excellent viscosity and anticoagulant properties.
When small amounts of gelatin are used in the preparation of an emulsion, the final products have an excellent flavor and a highly efficient production process can take place, with low costs.
