Global gelatin company Nitta Gelatin launched DRG Gelatin, an ingredient for soft gels designed specifically to inhibit cross-linkage reactions.

“Cross-linkage reactions act to inhibit solubility, thereby reducing the efficacy of the drug or supplement contained within,”​ according to the company.

Some manufacturing processes and ingredients have been observed to encourage cross-linkages, which creates solubility and shelf-life issues. These include products with high aldehyde, caramel color, or fish oil content.

DRG Gelatin was designed to contain and protect the active ingredients in a capsule, promoting rapid solubility following ingestion.

The ingredient is available in both porcine and bovine source materials. It works to contain and protect the active ingredients in a variety of dietary supplements, OTC medications, and pharmaceuticals. The company said it was designed to meet consumer ‘clean label’ expectations, delivering the same gel strength as traditional gelatin.
