You might not know it, but gelatin is an ingredient that is good for you. But it really depends on the source of the powdered gelatin. While gelatin is not vegan-friendly, you can get good sources that come from animals that are grass-fed. Some of the benefits of having gelatin in your diet is that it supports healthy skin, hair and nail growth. Gelatin is also an ingredient that is good for the joints and can help to speed up joint recovery. Gelatin can also help tighten up loose skin after having babies. Gelatin also helps to improve digestion since it naturally binds to water in the body and helps the food to move more easily through the digestive track. Gelatin may even help to improve cellulite. Gelatin is also an excellent source of dietary collagen, which is interesting as gelatin is too large to be absorbed by the skin, so using skin creams that contain collagen doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Gelatin is also a good source of protein and can help to build muscle in the body.
When it comes to choosing a powdered gelatin you want to make sure you get it from a good source, preferably grass fed source. You don’t want to be supporting the unethical practices of factory farming if you don't have to, and you also don't want to be eating something that uses drugs or hormones. So getting gelatin that doesn't come from factory farmed animals is important. Unless the gelatin powder says where it is specifically sourced from, and from what kind of animals, it most likely comes from the factory farming industry. A good source of grass fed gelatin comes from the company of Great Lakes Gelatin, along with Bernard Jensen. Making homemade gelatin from grass fed gelatin is a healthy alternative to the boxed variety and one that uses good ingredients. You can make homemade Jello and customize the flavors, adding some vitamins and use kefir, water, or kombucha as the base for a healthy vitamin and probiotic boost in your diet. A few tips to making homemade jello with fruit, jello salad, and the best jello recipe is to never add gelatin powder to recipes with fresh pineapple, kiwi or papaya. This is because these fruits will inactivate the thickening properties of the gelatin. You also don't want to boil gelatin, as it will lose its thickening ability.
