Sourced from South Africa and sold per gram, gelatin is a protein product derived from collagen.
It has important health benefits due to its unique combination of amino acids. It provides strength and structure for tissues. For example, collagen increases the flexibility of the skin and the strength of the tendons. Gelatin is practically fat- and carb-free, so it’s quite low in calories and may help in weight loss.
Gelatine is a natural setting agent that turns liquid into gel
How to dissolve gelatine powder
Place cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle with gelatine while whisking with a fork. Set aside for 5 minutes or until spongy.
Stand the bowl in a heatproof bowl of hot water and stir until the gelatine dissolves. Never boil gelatine, as it can become stringy.
Cool slightly, before adding to the mixture you want to set. Both mixtures should be a similar temperature to avoid any lumps
