Playing it safe in terms of quality and production

Safety

Gelatin has always been a healthy and safe food. Gelatin manufacturers worldwide stand for highest quality gelatin. This is evident in both the careful selection of premium raw materials as well as the multi-stage manufacturing process. Quality requirements for this process are laid down in national and international regulations – from the identification of which body parts of the animals may be used as raw materials to the physical parameters of processing all the way to the finished product.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Commission for Health and Consumer Protection have confirmed gelatin’s safety based on international research findings.

Premium raw materials

Most gelatin is made from animal raw materials such as pork, bovine or fish materials.  The raw materials used in gelatin manufacture come from registered slaughterhouses in which all animals are examined by a veterinarian.

The meat of the animals is delivered to butcher’s shops, while the skins and bones are used for gelatin manufacture. The conventional slaughter, control and approval procedures guarantee that the raw materials used for gelatin only come from animals whose meat is suitable for human consumption. The raw materials are selected in compliance with statutory provisions.

To ensure absolute safety and uninterrupted traceability of the gelatin and collagen peptides manufactured for the food and pharmaceutical industry, not only are the strictly regulated requirements complied with, but numerous controls are also carried out. Regular inspections by the relevant authorities and constant monitoring of the entire production process ensure that the final consumer is always offered the best quality and the greatest safety.
