Gelatin is a type of protein extracted from animal collagen tissue found in animal skin, bones and ligaments or connective tissue. Gelatin has high digestibility properties therefore it has the potential to be the raw material for making edible films. The edible film is a thin layer produced from edible materials. Edible films can be formed from three types of constituent materials, such as hydrocolloids, lipids, and mixtures/composites of the two. Several types of hydrocolloids that are able to make edible films are proteins (gelatin).
