Gel 5 is a porcine collagen with great functionallity and a high level of protein. Gel 5 is very pure and neutral in application, allowing a broad application range. Gel 5 has excellent water binding (1:20) and emulsifying (1:10:10) capacities. Together with the small particle size of 100 mesh, Gel 5 makes it ideal to be used in brines for injection and tumbling, resulting in a nice dispersion in your meat product. Gel 5 is a cold functional protein with heat reversible capacity, meaning it will swell and firm in cold conditionsand won't lose its functionality after a heat treatment.
