<p>Hi,</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was wondering, if you could help me with the following,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What is gelatin made of ?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What are the benefits of eating gelatin  ?</p>
<p>Can you get organic gelatin, if so, what would be a good brand name ?</p>
<p>Would it be best to go with a plain flavor to avoid the artificial colors ?</p>
<p>Do you include it in your diet ?</p>
<p>I remember as a kid, my mom would say it made your nails grow stronger....</p>
<p>And I got lots of it, when I had my tonsils taken out, LOL!</p>
<p>Thanks for reading!<span><img alt="thanks.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thanks.gif" style="width:61px;height:40px;"></span></p>

<p>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 <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>

I would definitely not eat the packaged flavored gelatins like Jell-o. The artificial colors and flavors are definitely NOT something I'd want to eat-- never mind the sugar.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
Most of the gelatin we eat though is from bone broths.

<p>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.....</p>
