Gelatine & Gelatine Alternatives
What’s the alternative to Gelatine?
Healan are a leading UK supplier of gelatine free alternatives. A big part of Healan Ingredients and our history has been in the product knowledge and supply of gelatine ingredients for various industries across the globe. This will always be a focus for our business, and we continue to provide support and industry advice on our range of gelatine products to our customers.

But as the food industry continues to cater for plant-based, vegetarian, vegan and other clean label demands, our product portfolio has continued to grow and includes premium gelatine-free alternatives. Natural hydrocolloid ingredients are suitable for a large range of applications and functions, some of which are explained below. We work with our customers on improving key texture characteristics without compromising consumer appeal, our vegetarian and vegan offerings are no different.
Consumers are not only following specific lifestyles and diets, but they are also more aware of sustainability and natural ingredients. With our large range of functional ingredients only accounting for small amounts in a recipe (typically 0.2-1.2%) we offer low MOQ’s, guidance on which ingredients would be best suited to your product’s functionality needs and the ability to blend ingredients for bespoke functions.
Switching to gelatine-free alternative ingredients doesn’t have to be a daunting concept. Working together we can achieve the same benefits that gelatine products would but cater to the wider and more mainstream plant-based consumer.
