The research internship is expected to be developed in the Pharmacy Faculty of Universitas Ahmad Dahlan. Gelatin is produced from collagen (protein) hydrolysis in acid, base, or enzymes. It is an essential ingredient of food additives. In the pharmacy industry, gelatin is the main ingredient of making capsules, soft capsules, tablets, coated tablets, and encapsulation. Gelatin is usually sourced from pork (non-halal). Conversely, fish is a halal gelatin alternative. The results can be continued and developed in the Pharmacy Faculty of Universitas Ahmad Dahlan, expected to provide solutions for halal-sourced gelatin in the food and pharmacy industries. (Warsi)
