What Makes Pharmaceutical Gelatin Different from Regular Gelatin?

Have you ever wondered what makes pharmaceutical gelatin different from regular gelatin? You may have heard of us being used in medicine or supplements, but do you know why we are preferred over the traditional ingredient found in desserts and candies? In this post, we'll dive into the unique properties of pharmaceutical gelatin of Funingpu and explore our many applications in the healthcare industry. Get ready to discover a whole new side to this versatile ingredient!

Manufacturing process of pharmaceutical gelatins


The manufacturing process of pharmaceutical gelatins in Funingpu begins with the extraction of collagen from animal sources such as pork skin or bovine skin. The collagen is then treated with either an acid or base to hydrolyze the peptide bonds between the amino acids that make up the protein. This results in a polymer of repeating units of glycine and proline. The gelatin is then purified through a series of steps involving filtration, precipitation, and drying.

 The final product is a white powder that is insoluble in water but can be dissolved in hot water to form a clear solution. Gelatin solutions are used in a variety of pharmaceutical applications such as tablet coatings, capsules, suppositories, ointments, and creams.


Types of Pharmaceutical Gelatin Products Available


Gelatin is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of pharmaceutical products. Here are some of the most common types of gelatin-based products available:

  1. Capsules: Gelatin capsules are one of the most common types of pharmaceutical products. They are typically made from two pieces of gelatin that are sealed together and filled with a powder or liquid medication. Gelatin capsules are easy to swallow and provide a convenient way to take medication.
  2. Tablets: Tablets are another common type of pharmaceutical product that can be made with gelatin. Gelatin tablets are typically made by combining powdered medication with gelatin and water. The mixture is then pressed into tablet form and dried. Tablets offer a convenient way to take medication and can be easily transported.




Pharmaceutical gelatin by Funingpu has a unique set of properties that make us an ideal choice for drug delivery systems. We are easy to manipulate into various shapes and sizes and can be sterilized, and offers excellent protection against environmental factors. Our ability to form gels also allows researchers to create sustained release formulations that can deliver drugs over longer periods of time than other methods. As more research continues to uncover the potential of pharmaceutical gelatin, we will gain even more insight into our uses in the world of medicine.
