What is Gelatin?
Gelatin is an ingredient used in food production to create a jello-like consistency. Gelatin is obtained from the bones and connective tissue of farm animals; such as pigs and cows. It is cream colored and comes powdered or in granules. Gelatin is used to create jiggly texture in desserts and some savory foods and to thicken sauces, puddings, yogurt and add form to gummy candies. It is flavorless and odorless and is the main ingredient in popular American jello.
