PHARMACEUTICAL GELATIN - DUE TO ITS UNIQUE AND VERSATILE CHARACTERISTICS, GELATIN IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT INGREDIENT IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
Its rheological characteristics allow flexible films to be formed from a liquid solution.
MELTING POINT SIMILAR TO HUMAN BODY TEMPERATURE
When ingested, gels and films containing gelatin will dissolve, releasing the active ingredient to the body more efficiently.
ADHESIVENESS AND COHESIVENESS
Gelatin is able to bind molecules properly, making it a great excipient in tablets.
Hard capsules have greater consumer acceptance because they mask the taste of the drug and serve as an effective barrier, protecting the drug from external agents that could compromise its stability.
Gelatin is the ideal ingredient because it has the ability to form film, has good solubility in water and has rapid dispersion when consumed.
Gelatin is the main component of these capsules and provides the formation of a flexible film that allows the hermetic encapsulation of liquid or semisolid components, forming an excellent barrier for the drug, while also increasing its stability.
Gelatin is added to formulations to enhance cohesiveness between the powders, ensuring that the tablet remains intact after compaction.
With high binding power, Gelatin allows for excellent dissolution of tablets when consumed while also facilitating absorption.
