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 gelatine 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 it is used by the world’s gelatin producers and end-users as a key quality indicator.
A higher Bloom values 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.
