What is gelatin?
Gelatin is a lot more than an ingredient that gives foods texture and firmness! Gelatin is a protein-rich powder, derived from collagen, which contains significant amounts of some important amino acids—such as glycine—that have tremendous health benefits for the entire body.

Gelatin is the result of the partial hydrolysis of collagen. Collagen, the most abundant protein in our bodies, makes up a significant part of our connective tissues and skin. Collagen supplements have become popular because they can help replenish the collagen we naturally lose through aging. SInce gelatin is derived from collagen, a gelatin supplement can provide the same benefits as collagen! Gelatin, like collagen, supports skin hydration and elasticity, healthy hair and nails, overall gut health and bones and joints.

 

How to use gelatin

Gelatin is actually super easy to use in cooking! To use as a thickener, simply mix one tablespoon into at least two ounces of water and just add it to your recipes. You can add gelatin to smoothies, desserts, soups, stews, gravies and so much more.

 

What to look for when buying a gelatin powder

Not all gelatins are the same. It is important to check the source of your gelatin and make sure that the gelatin you use comes from grass fed, pasture raised beef. Also, make sure there are no other added or unwanted ingredients. Lastly, you should know that not all gelatins have the same taste, or preferably, lack of taste. Further Food Premium Gelatin is sourced from the highest quality grass fed, pasture raised beef. It is non-GMO, antibiotic free, hormone free, sugar free, kosher certified, and paleo and keto friendly. Additionally, Further Food Premium Gelatin is tasteless and can be mixed into a variety of recipes with added gut, joint and skin benefits.
