So, what is porcine pancreas?

Porcine pancreas is a type of animal-derived ingredient that is extracted from the pancreas of pigs. It is primarily used in the production of enzymes that aid in the digestion of food, as the pancreas is responsible for producing several enzymes that break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Porcine pancreas is also a source of insulin, which is used to treat diabetes in humans. This ingredient is typically processed and purified before being used in various medical and industrial applications. Due to its unique properties and composition, porcine pancreas is a valuable resource in many fields of science and medicine.
