How NOW Real Food® Beef Gelatin Powder Can Help You Make Better Foods

NOW Real Food® Beef Gelatin Powder is a versatile thickener, stabilizer and texturizer that mixes instantly – no soaking necessary. Gelatin is commonly used in jams, jellies, desserts, marshmallows, and many other foods. It’s often used to create volume without adding a lot of calories. Gelatin can also be used as a clarifying agent for juices, homemade vinegars and wine. Let’s take a closer look at how gelatin can help you make better foods.

Gelatin is a protein that is derived from the partial hydrolysis of collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein found in animal connective tissue. When gelatin is made, the collagen fibers are broken down into smaller pieces, which makes them more digestible. Additionally, gelatin contains amino acids like glycine and proline, which are not found in other proteins. These amino acids have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, boosting immunity, and promoting healthy skin and hair growth.

Gelatin can be used in a variety of ways to improve the texture, flavor and nutritional profile of foods. For example, gelatin can be used to make healthy fruit snacks or gummies. By using gelatin to make these snacks at home, you can control the amount of sugar and other additives that go into them. Gelatin can also be used to thicken soups and stews without changing their flavor. And because it’s high in protein, adding gelatin to your favorite recipes can give them an added nutritional boost.

As you can see, NOW Real Food® Beef Gelatin Powder is a versatile ingredient that can be used to improve the texture, flavor and nutritional profile of your favorite foods. So next time you’re in the kitchen, don’t be afraid to experiment with gelatin – you may just be surprised at what you can create!

I ordered this product and sent an email to NOW for more information. I wanted to compare it to Great Lakes Gelatin. This is the response I received: "While our product is checked for a variety of impurities and has to meet our strict specs for heavy metals and pesticides it is not a certified Organic material. It is obtained from a collagen derived from the skin, white connective tissues and bones of animals." Otherwise I couldn't find a lot of information anywhere on the net. I think I'd rather buy gelatin that is from an organic/grass fed source such as Great Lakes if I want to consume it on a regular basis.
