Recombinant Human Gelatin Gelatin This link is no longer valid
Using recombinant technology, FibroGen produces highly purified, fully characterized, genetically distinct molecules of recombinant human (rh) gelatin designed to be gelling or non-gelling
At what point will we see this marketed as a new food source.
