Collagen extraction takes place through a process
chemical and thermal, which progresses through the following steps.
Thermal hydrolysis step in order to extract collagen from the raw material.
Sequence of filtration steps to remove fibers, fats and salts from the gelatin solution.
Sequence of steps to remove water from the gelatin solution, increasing its concentration and viscosity.
Step in which the gelatin solution is thermally sterilized to ensure microbiological properties.
GELIFICATION & DRYING
The gelatin solution is cooled and extruded into noodles and distributed evenly on a drying mat to remove moisture from the gelatin.
GRINDING & PACKAGING
Dry gelatin is ground, homogenized, sampled for quality analysis, packaged and sold as an ingredient to other industries.
