Gelatin is widely used in foods, drugs and devices. It is used in plasma substitutes and in vaccines. It is also used in photographic emulsions, glues, matches, cosmetics and much more.

Cross-reactivity between gelatin of different animal origin exists

Immediate IgE-mediated reactions have been reported, as well as systemic reactions and anaphylaxis. Allergic reactions after gelatin-containing live vaccines are increasingly reported. Reports of plasma substitute reactions also express concern for using gelatin-containing products. Allergic reactions to fruit-gums, marshmallows (8) and "gelatin of any kind" have been reported as well. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
