Gelita is the leading supplier of collagen-based proteins
The leading company for manufacturing and marketing collagen proteins has developed a vegan gelatin sheet.
The plant-based gelatine alternative is made from agar-agar, a seaweed-based jelly that up until now, has only been available in powder form.
Because of its high melting point, dishes made using agar-agar are able to maintain stability for longer, and as agar-agar is plant-based, it makes the perfect vegan and vegetarian substitute for animal-based gelatine. Coming in sheet form, this alternative also guarantees a defined and identical gelling strength, making it easier to use than its powder counterpart.
CEO of GELITA AG Dr. Franz-Josef Konert, commented: “We have worked intensively on this matter over the past few years and launched in-house technology development programs. We knew that consumer-friendly products had to be extremely easy to use. This is why we applied the long-established advantages of the standardized sheet format to agar-agar”
