How long will it be before I see results?
Collagen and gelatin begin restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to twelve weeks of supplementation, depending on the study and the benefit being measured. However, one should take collagen peptides and/or gelatin indefinitely to combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with collagen or gelatin is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.
I eat a lot of protein/meat. Do I still need to take collagen or gelatin?
Yes! Western diets are mainly composed of eating muscle-meat proteins instead of connective tissue proteins which are rich in collagen. Supplementing with collagen and/or gelatin protein can help to repair our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, skin, hair, nails, teeth, and bones.
How is gelatin different from collagen?
Collagen and gelatin come from the same animal source. It is essential to choose a source that is grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free, like Further Food Premium Gelatin. Gelatin and collagen are similar in that they have the same protein and amino acid profiles. So, supplementing with gelatin or collagen provides the same health benefits, such as helping to improve gut health, strengthening bones and joints, and giving you softer, glowing skin.
The main difference between collagen and gelatin is how they are used. Collagen dissolves in beverages, soups, and can be used in baking or any recipe without any added texture. Gelatin becomes “gel-like” when mixed with cold liquids and is best used to create healthy jello, gummies, and candies or as a thickener in smoothies, puddings, or soups. Both collagen and gelatin are odorless and tasteless and will not change the flavor of your foods.
How is gelatin different from bone broth?
Both bone broth and gelatin come from collagen and provide similar health benefits. However, since most of us don’t have the time to make and consume bone broth on a regular basis, supplementing with gelatin is a great way to get the benefits of bone broth and collagen. Additionally, gelatin powder is unflavored and can be used in a variety of recipes, including healthy gummies and other desserts. One can’t use bone broth to make desserts! =)
What does it taste like?
Further Food Premium Gelatin is tasteless and odorless, so it can be added to any drink or food without changing the taste.

Additionally, each serving of our gelatin provides 10 grams of collagen. Further Food Premium Gelatin should be stored at room temperature, in a cool, dry environment.
Can children eat gelatin?
Yes. Our Gelatin is tasteless and odorless, which makes it great for picky eaters. And gelatin is sugar free, so you can use it to make healthy sugar free gummies and jello that your kids will love.
Is gelatin gluten free?
Yes. Further Food Premium Gelatin is gluten free. However, note that this product is made in a facility that also processes gluten as well as milk, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, soy and egg.
