Within the pharmaceutical field, gelatine is mainly applied in the:
- Production of hard and soft capsules
- Coating of tablets
- Encapsulation of vitamins
In these applications, a capsule or a layer of gelatine protects delicate medicines against sunlight and oxygen, which increases their shelf-life. Another advantage of applying gelatine is that the medication can easily be taken without any off-taste. Furthermore, gelatine ensures that the active ingredients are delivered at the right place in the digestive tract.
