Grass-fed beef gelatin. Unflavoured. For use in regular and dietetic recipes. This Gelatine will clump up in cold liquids. It is recommended to either dissolve in hot liquid or room temperature liquids which allows product to dissolve or swell.
The raw material used for production of gelatine is the naturally occurring protein collagen which is commercially sourced from the meat industry from healthy animals designated for human consumption. Each stage of the manufacturing process is rigorously controlled in modern laboratories to ensure purity and quality. The process of converting collagen into gelatine involves several cleansing and purification steps. The end result is an off white dry powder of the utmost purity.
"Our cattle are grass fed and slaughtered in Argentina and Brazil which is controlled by their respective Department of Agriculture. These countries have the same type of rigorous tests and inspections as the United States. Beef hides are the only product used to manufacture gelatine in these countries." - The Great Lakes Gelatine Company.
Some believe that Glutamic acid or Mono sodium glutamate is contained in gelatine. This is simply not the case. Read our more scientific explanation here.

Gelatine is produced entirely from animals and contains absolutely no gluten.

Ray Peat:For years I hadn't slept through a whole night without waking, and I was in the habit of having some juice or a little thyroid to help me go back to sleep. The first time I had several grams of gelatine just before bedtime, I slept without interruption for about 9 hours. I mentioned this effect to some friends, and later they told me that friends and relatives of theirs had recovered from long-standing pain problems (arthritic and rheumatic and possibly neurological) in just a few days after taking 10 or 15 grams of gelatine each day.
