Gelatin is a food protein obtained from mammalian skin and bone. Due to its many functional, physical and chemical properties, gelatin finds varied applications across numerous industries. When gelatin is mixed with water, it forms a thermally reversible elastic gel, which melts at below body temperature; hence jellies made from gelatin have a melt-in-the-mouth texture with an excellent burst of flavour. Gelatin is also used in shampoos, face masks, cosmetics, capsules, nutritional bars, protein drinks, etc. During 2009-2016, the global gelatin market grew at a CAGR of around 3%.
