Gelatin is a form of protein derived from animal sources. This clear and tasteless protein is obtained from the collagen found in the bones, connective tissue, and skin of pigs, cattle and other animals. In old times, gelatin was used as a biological adhesive. But with advancing times, the use of gelatin has changed and diversified. Apart from adhesiveness, gelatin possesses many physical, chemical and functional properties like crystallization control, water binding, film forming, thickening and emulsifying properties. Thus, it has found a large area of application in the food, pharmaceutical, neutraceutical, photographic, cosmetic and packaging industries. Besides these, gelatin has also established its utilization in combating osteoporosis and arthritis. The widening scope of application has provided a lucrative platform for a swift growth of the global gelatin market which is expected to reach a value of around US$ 2.8 billion by 2021.
