Normally Gelatin is not considered Kosher but certain Kosher companies produce specially made Kosher Gelatin.

According to Rabbi Dr. David Sheinkopf, Gelatin IS kosher. Author of "Gelatin in Jewish Law" (Bloch 1982) and "Issues in "Jewish Dietary Laws" (Ktav 1998) Rabbi Sheinkopf provides an in depth analysis of how and why gelatin is kosher.

Rabbi Sheinkopf also provides answers to the questions Is carmine kosher? (Yes) and Is Kitniyyot kosher? (Yes)
