About Pharmaceutical Gelatin Market
Gelatin is produced by hydrolysis of collagen obtained from animal protein. It is indispensable to pharmaceutical formulations and packaging and is obtained from animal bones and hides. Porcine and cattle bones serve as primary raw materials for gelatin. Properties such as non-allergenic and easy digestibility make gelatin the most preferred dosage form of drugs. It is also used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical dosage forms such as hard capsules, soft gels, and in tablets as a binding agent.
Moreover, gelatin is an excipient that is commonly used in formulations of medications such as amoxicillin trihydrate, amphetamine, clindamycin hydrochloride, gabapentin, and omeprazole. Gelatin for pharmaceutical applications has certain specifications as directed by various pharmacopeia. Grade of the gelatin is decided based on its end use in the form of soft capsules or hard capsules or for any other medicinal purpose. However, pharmaceutical grade gelatin is a combination or blend of type A and type B gelatin to produce a medium bloom that is considered suitable for pharmaceutical use.
