I was wondering, if you could help me with the following,
What is gelatin made of ?
What are the benefits of eating gelatin ?
Can you get organic gelatin, if so, what would be a good brand name ?
Would it be best to go with a plain flavor to avoid the artificial colors ?
Do you include it in your diet ?
I remember as a kid, my mom would say it made your nails grow stronger....
And I got lots of it, when I had my tonsils taken out, LOL!
Thanks for reading!
My family consumes gelatin in bone broths (gelatin comes from bones) and from the unflavored packets which I add to rice and other side dishes when I am not using bone broth to cook them. I have not found organic gelatin but I am sure it is out there
We do use unflavored packaged gelatin. We prepare it like Jell0 and sweeten with fruit juice, for a treat. We also use it to make cheesecakes.
Most of the gelatin we eat though is from bone broths.
found a company that sells organic gelatin. The site also give information on health benefits :)
This is interesting. I have actually been very weary of gelatin......being that on most msg information sites they state that gelatin is processed in such a way that it produces free glutamic acid which is what makes msg so bad......so I have avoided it altogether....but do wonder sometimes if there are forms of it that would be allright, or at least not as bad as others.....
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
