So, what is visgelatine?

Visgelatine is a versatile food ingredient that is derived from collagen obtained from animal bones and connective tissue. This type of gelatine has a high bloom value, which means it has a stronger gelling ability than other types of gelatine. It is commonly used in the food industry to stabilize and thicken products such as jellies, desserts, and confectionery. Visgelatine is also used in the production of capsules for medicines and supplements, as well as in the cosmetic industry to create smooth and creamy textures in lotions and creams. Its unique properties make it an essential ingredient in many different applications.
