Types of gelatin are A gelatin - Gelatin produced from the acidic treatment of porcine skin. B gelatin - Gelatin produced from the alkaline treatment of bovine skin. An article published on Biotechnological Processing of Laying Hen Paw Collagen into Gelatins at Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute in Nov 2020 states that hen paws are the alternative source for gelatin which contains a high proportion of collagen (apprx.77%), is an excellent source of raw materials for preparing gelatins.

Gelatin's remarkable functional properties, its ability to stabilize, thicken, gel, foam or bind, It's high usage in surgeries as hemostat reagent, coating of hard & soft-gel capsules, which facilitates ease in swallowing and provides protection from environmental changes there by increasing the shell-life of the product, made it predominant in pharmaceutical industry.

Lonza, to increase the overall production capacity of capsules within CHI's Capsugel portfolio by 30 billion capsules annually, announced a USD 93 million investment in its Capsules and Health Ingredients (CHI) Division in Oct 2020 which is a dosage form delivery partner to the health nutrition and biopharma industry.

The advancements in technology and rise in incidence of diseases are driving the factors for pharmaceutical gelatin.
