a symbol for gelatin digesting unit, used for measuring dosage of bromelain, an enzyme used as a digestive aid and for reduction of pain and inflammation. This unit cannot be converted to a weight unit, because different preparations of the enzyme differ in activity. Bromelain is also measured in milk clotting units (MCU); 1 GDU equals approximately 1.5 MCU.
