Gelatin is a translucent, colorless, brittle, virtually tasteless solid substance. Historically, gelatin is denatured collagen and is typically isolated from bovine or porcine skin or bone by acid or base extraction. Approximately fifty thousand metric tons of gelatins are produced annually for medical use. Most of this volume is consumed in some aspect of oral drug delivery, which uses mixtures of bovine and porcine gelatin. Additionally, thousands of metric tons are used annually for parenteral formulations and devices.
