Gelatin is such a wonderful and interesting ingredient. In addition to being a relatively tasteless, dairy-free source of protein, gelatin has the ability to set liquids into delicious desserts and treats that are firm enough to slice.

Pink Strawberry Delight | THM: S | Still one of my favorite Trim Healthy Mama desserts! Like all the desserts in this round-up, it’s set with gelatin.

 

Gelatin is actually a cooked form of collagen; cooking collagen-rich foods (like the bones, skin and scales of animals) extracts the gelatin from them. This is why you end up with a thick gelatinous glob on top of your pot of chicken soup after its been refrigerated! That is good stuff!

Trim Healthy Mama Just Gelatin

Trim Healthy Mama Collagen

Both gelatin and collagen provide you with protein and the same over-all health benefits, but since their chemical properties are different and gelatin needs hot water to dissolve, they serve different purposes in culinary creations. Unlike gelatin, collagen does not have the ability to gel liquids. This is why you often see collagen used in drinks and gelatin used in desserts.

You can replace collagen with gelatin (as long as your recipe stays hot), but you cannot substitute collagen for gelatin. If gelatin is called for in a recipe, it is most often because of structure it gives the dish after its been cooled.

Great Lakes Gelatin

Trim Healthy Mama Just Gelatin

Knox Unflavored Gelatin

My favorite brands of gelatin are Great Lakes and Trim Healthy Mama. Both of these companies use grass-fed beef to make their product, so you can be sure you’re getting a very pure form of protein. You can also use Knox unflavored in any Trim Healthy Mama-friendly recipe that calls for gelatin. It is a pork-based product and a less pure, but frugal and effective form of dairy-free protein. As a rule of thumb, you need approximately 2 1/2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon of Great Lakes or Trim Healthy Mama Just Gelatin to replace 1 packet of Knox unflavored gelatin.
