Succinyl Gelatin

Reduced cross-linking gelatin

Succinyl gelatin is a modified gelatin by the substitution of NH3 branch in the gelatin with carboxyl group(-COOH).

Cross links of gelatin capsule occurs primarily by the reaction of aldehyde in the liquid fill or in the plasticizer such as glycerine and NH3 branch in the gelatin and accelerated with the presence of peroxide, minerals, ketone and metal ions in the liquid fill making gelatin capsule insoluble in the stomach but succinyl gelaitn eliminates the chances of cross linking by the substitution of NH3 to COOH and very useful for the liquid encapsulation which are subject to the cross linking problems such as multi-vitamine product, minerals, herb extraction and mixture, etc.
