What does it mean to bloom gelatin?

Bloom is a test to measure the strength of a gel or gelatin, as a means of monitoring the effects of quality, concentration and processing methods. It is the force, expressed in grams, necessary to depress by 4mm the surface of a gelatin/gel with a standard 0.5" diameter cylinder probe. Gelatin is defined as a mixture of water-soluble proteins derived from collagen by hydrolysis. The functionality of gelatin is directly influenced by its strength, so the world’s gelatin producers and end-users use bloom strength testers as a key quality indicator.
A higher Bloom value mean higher prices.

Understanding gelatin is important in the production of capsules because gelatin-related factors are directly related to the absorption and bioavailability of a drug.
