Animal-free GelatinCollagen

Gelor's first product to go on the market was animal-free gelatincollagen. Their gelatincollagen is grown in the lab through the bio-fermentation of microbes. Geltor claims they can produce gelatincollagen with desirable properties for their customers such as softer or harder gelatins by controlling the proteins and proteins ratios present in their gelatin products.
