Hydrolyzed Bovine Gelatin is a protein product produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen, a protein material, extracted from animal tissue such as skin and bone.
The Gelatin molecule is made up of Amino Acids joined together by Amide Linkages in a long molecular chain. These Amino Acids perform an imperative function in the building of connective tissue in humans.
In other words: Bovine gelatin consists of a protein called collagen that has been hydrolyzed. Collagen makes up the strong, tough connective tissues in animals, and in cows (bovines) these are found in high concentrations in the bones, cartilage, skin, tendons and hooves of the animal.
