In brief: Gelatin

Several products available, but most have: krill oil, omega-3 fatty acids, epa (eicosapentaenoic acid), dha (docosahaxaenoic acid), gelatin , glycerin , sorbitol , water , and vanillin.
A small proportion of people are allergic to gelatin. The rest of those ingredients are not considered harmful or risky for persons with allergies.
