This materials dissolved in warm water steam and boiling water, and produce the Gelatin . Gelatin is one of the most consumed of colloidal protein substances in industry of food , pharmaceutical, medical and military that is produced in four different fields of edible, industrial, photographic and pharmaceutical. In the food industry are used in the preparation of marmalade, jelly, sweets, ice cream and etc. Which is easily absorbed in body and helps to digest other foodstuffs by emulsion formation with fats and proteins.

In 1814 acid was applied to softening bones and minerals extraction for the first time and in 1888 the first industrial production was produced with this technique by a scientist from the french city of Lyon who was named Coignet and since then the manufacturing industry of gelatin has been expanded day by day. Conversion collagen substance containing connective tissue (skin and bones) to a gel and solution matter forming, which is used as food or glue, returns to pre of the date. preparation of Transparent jelly by using egg white to refine, was considered for a long time as a housewife art, until the industrial production of the gelatin, made it unnecessary. It's not surprising that many of the recent research on characteristics of the gelatin are doing by the industry professionals of photographic. for a long time it had known that produced gelatin of skin and bone of fishes which was produced in laboratory, doesn't have gelation Srength like gelatin obtained from the skin and bones of mammals.

In recent decades the nutritional supplements such as glucosamine and Kndrvtyn sulfate has been used as factors to eliminate symptoms of these diseases that effects on the cause of the disease. Clinical studies suggested that collagen due to having high amounts of amino acids, can be beneficial for the treatment of these diseases, also this supplement doesn't have toxic effect and has no limitation of using. collagen has directly anti-inflammatory effects and has a direct effect on the joints tissue. in a study, receiving gelatin has checked on the bones and they came to the conclusion that gelatin has different effects on bone mineral density and body weight. this effect has been seen mainly on the femur (thigh bone). other studies has shown that injection of gelatin, increases the calcium in the blood circulation, this indicates that the bone is being made. also in protein malnutrition that decreases the bone and causes fracture. Amount of minerals and density of femoral bone increases by getting gelatin. Gelatin has a positive effect on the treatment of degenerative diseases of muscular - skeletal systems. 2.

Gelatin covers inner membrane of the gastrointestinal tract and protects it against the risk factors and irritating. also been claimed that gelatin reduces the inflammatory bowel disease of people with irritable bowel syndrome. 5. Gelatin and the liver : Recent research has demonstrated that the glycine amino acid in the liver is used to detoxify drugs and excretion of hormones and biliary acids. the liver's ability to perform actions is limited in the event of inaccessibility to glycine. then, gelatin can help the liver by having a large amount of glycine. 6. The other effects of gelatin : It has been shown in laboratory studies of animals and humans that gelatin might supply necessary amino acids for making Kartylazh (skin material) and even can repair it.
