Great Lakes, Beef Gelatin, Unflavoured, 454g
Gelatin is the purified protein derived by the selective hydrolysis of collagen from the skin, the connective tissue and/or bones of animals. Great Lakes Gelatin provides the highest type of pure unflavoured edible gelatins. Gelatin is a hot water soluble protein extracted from collagen. Individual collagen monomeric proteins have molecular weights of between 95,000 and 125,000 Daltons. These proteins assemble into fibres which are massive aggregates and do not have defined molecular weights. To make gelatin, collagen rich materials (such as bovine hide) are cleaned and treated with dilute alkaline, or acid and heat to denature (untangle) the collagen into hot water-soluble proteins. The extract is purified and dried to form the gelatin powder. Essentially, gelatin is thermally denatured (melted) form of collagen that makes the proteins soluble in hot water. Each stage of the manufacturing process is rigorously controlled in modern laboratories to ensure purity and quality. The process of converting collagen into gelatin involves several cleansing and purification steps. The end result is an off white dry powder of the utmost purity.
With the same benefits as Collagen Hydrolysate such as supporting and building connective tissue. Gelatin is great for use in regular and dietetic recipes, it is pure protein, Kosher, and has no MSG. Great Lakes Gelatin is a versatile cooking ingredient used in many gelling and thickening applications from deserts to puddings to sauces.
