The edible cola bottle

Great fun for any birthday party or celebration – and featured on many YouTube channels: the edible cola bottle. The recipe with cola and gelatine is really simple.


1 plastic bottle of cola (0.5l)
50g gelatine powder (corresponds
(to approx. 33 gelatine leaves)
stable adhesive tape


Pour the cola in a bowl. Stir the gelatine into a little water, allow to swell, then heat until the gelatine dissolves. Warm up the cola, then add the dissolved gelatine and mix well. Carefully remove the label from the bottle, then cut the plastic bottle open lengthwise on one side with a cutter and seal the incision with the adhesive tape, pour the cola into the bottle and place in the fridge for a couple of hours. Once the cola has set, remove the sticky tape, and carefully cut off the plastic bottle. Place the label around the bottle, seal with tape, and the edible cola bottle is ready!

on track for success


In 2016, GELITA MEDICAL launched the world’s first gelatine fibrillar for controlled hemostasis: GELITA TUFT-IT® combines the positive properties of a gelatine-based hemostat with the easy handling of a non-woven structure. The following examples show how well the product is received by doctors, and what GELITA MEDICAL is doing to increase awareness of TUFT-IT®: At the 136th Munich Congress of the German Society of Surgery in March 2019, no fewer than four surgeons presented their experiences with this innovative hemostyptic. The experts reported on its application in open and laparoscopic liver surgery, thoracic and lung operations, and visceral-based types of surgery. They also provided information on the differences between cellulose and gelatine-based materials in hemostasis and wound healing. GELITA MEDICAL has already convinced several hospitals of the advantages of the TUFT-IT® product. In India, it was even listed in an important tender and is regularly used there in various procedures.

In order to establish the product even more strongly in the market, GELITA MEDICAL hosts a number of different events. Regional trainings and workshops for sales partners take place at regular intervals. By the end of the year, GELITA MEDICAL will have participated in several international and national congresses, such as SMIT (Society for Medical Innovation and Technology) in Heilbronn, the 92nd Chilean and International Congress of Surgeons, and many others.
