Great Lakes Beef Gelatin 454g (Unflavoured)
Great Lakes Beef Gelatin is made from just one simple ingredient providing a wholesome protein dietary supplement. It easily dissolves in hot liquids, and it can be used to thicken cold liquids, making it excellent for making tasty gummies and jellies. It is almost tasteless, colourless and odourless.
Superfoods Australia’s Great Lakes Gelatin’s collagen and gelatin products are sourced from kosher, grass fed pasture raised cattle in Argentina and Brazil. They are raised on the standards of the American Grassfed Association and animal welfare guidelines.
How do I choose between collagen and gelatin?
The gelatin and collagen hydrolysate are both made from the same high quality beef hides, but the gelatin is not broken down as much which is why it will gel when mixed with water and chilled. It does not mix well with cold water, only hot liquids. So, if you want to make gummies or jellies, then get the gelatin. If you just want something to mix in with your coffee or cold drinks, then get the collagen hydrolysate.
Two of the most desirable properties of gelatin is the melt-in-the mouth characteristic, and its ability to form thermo-reversible gels.
