Q.

A mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals is:

 A.

Pepsin

 B.

Benzene

 C.

Collagen

 D.

Gelatin

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, and fish.

During hydrolysis, the natural molecular bonds between individual collagen strands are broken down into a form that rearranges more easily.

Its chemical composition is, in many respects, closely similar to that of its parent collagen. Photographic and pharmaceutical grades of gelatin are generally sourced from beef bones.
