Gelatin Technical Data

Our Gelatin is “A Grade” premium 100% Australian Beef Gelatin, sourced from only the best Australian beef cattle hides and skin. Our food-grade Gelatin is kosher compliant and Halal certified. It is unflavoured and contains no gluten, dairy, cholesterol, sugar, fat or MSG. Australia produces some of the finest cattle with our open green pastures, allowing our cattle to roam freely. Australia’s strict quality standards ensure only the best beef is produced. A product we can be proud of.

Gelatin is derived from the skin and white connective tissue of animals. Gelatin does not occur free in nature, and cannot be recovered from horns, hoofs and other non-Collagen containing parts of vertebrate animals. There are no plant sources of Gelatin, and there is no chemical relationship between Gelatin and other materials referred to as ”vegetable Gelatin,” such as seaweed extracts. (Meaning vegetable/ plant-sourced Gelatin does not have the same health benefits as the Collagen in Gelatin.)

The earliest commercial production of Gelatin appears to have been in Holland around 1685. Followed shortly thereafter in England about 1700. The first commercial production of Gelatin in the USA was in Massachusetts in 1808. Gelatin is an important material finding application in the food, pharmaceutical and photographic industries.

Throughout the entire process, strict attention is paid to Good Manufacturing Practices and HACCP programs to ensure the purity of the Gelatin. The product is tested at various intervals during production and as a finished product to ensure compliance with customer and international standards.

Gelatin is mostly known for its food grade and cooking qualities; however, there are hydrolysed products also made from the same source. The difference is, in processing, they use different enzymes to extract or enhance the different properties of the Collagen.

  • The food-grade is 88% protein and 12% moisture (water and residual salts).
  • The hydrolysed is 96% protein and 4% moisture (water and residual salts).
  • Hydrolysed has less moisture; therefore, it has a smaller molecular weight of 3 KiloDaltons compared to the food-grade at 180 KiloDaltons. ( a measure of mass)

Neither the hydrolysed nor the food-grade contain added preservatives. The food-grade may contain traces of sulphate due to alkaline and acid washing as part of the cleaning process.

The food-grade is Australian derived bovine (vet checked and certified cattle). The hydrolysed is German derived bovine (vet checked and certified cattle).

The Hydrolysed forms have been enzymatically treated to reduce the molecular weight. This allows for quicker absorption making it easier for the body to utilise. This process also changes it from gelling to non-gelling. Of the 20 amino acids present in the human body, Gelatin contains 18. Gelatin contains high percentages of glycine, alanine and proline. These particular amino acids are responsible for the unusual fibrous property of Collagen.

Our gelatin contains no sugar, gluten, dairy, fat, or MSG

  • Amino acids. Why do we need them?? And what the heck are they?? And if I need them so bad – where can I get some??
  • It sounds like some weird fad that healthy people harp on about, but they are essential to your ongoing wellbeing.
  • An amino acid is an organic compound. These organic compounds are the basic building blocks of proteins. Proteins are essential for us to survive and our body to grow and be strong. They are super important for the growth and repair of the human body. Protein is the major structural component of all cells in the body. Without protein, the cells and body will start to break down and die off. When enough die, you will have some serious health issues. High doses of proteins are available from Gelatin, which can be taken as a daily supplement.
  • In short, we need these amino acids to provide protein to the cells in our body, so we can be healthy and survive.
