I absolutely love this product! My hair, skin, and nails have never been better! I am a hair stylist, and for the last 10 years people have asked me what they could take to help their hair grow and be more healthy. Well, this is the ticket! I have started recommending it to all of my clients, family, and friends! I put about a teaspoon in my coffee cup every morning, pour my coffee onto it and stir really well. Then I add my cream and sugar to drink as normal.

This is actually the first product I've tried for bulk unflavored gelatin, and have been very happy with it. Not only is it from grass-fed cows, but per serving has 2x the amount of protein compared to the Great Lakes brand of gelatin, and is ultimately why I decided to purchase this instead of the other. In my opinion, it's an overall better value because of this considering you can get twice the protein punch in half the amount of product, at a cheaper cost, (and I do realize this is also 2oz less than the GL brand). I have a chaotic work schedule and on some mornings have to be awake and on the road by 4:30am, and do not have the appetite to physically eat any breakfast that early in the morning, but do need something easy on the stomach, so I mix a tablespoon of this with some full-fat canned coconut milk in my coffee and take with me. This concoction actually does a pretty good job at keeping me satiated and the stomach happy until I am actually hungry enough to eat something. I've also made gelatin/gummy snacks with various recipes around the web and have had good results. Some recipes state you need to sprinkle the granules over the liquid and let sit to let it “bloom”, but I find this not necessary at all. I guess the only downfall to this product and most gelatin products, (but does not warrant a deduction from the star rating) is that it only dissolves in warm/hot liquid; therefore have not tried this in smooties, etc. yet. I will definitely be reordering this when I run out!

I use this to make “jello” for my 13 month old. She loves it. I also enjoy health “jello”. The plan was to use this in broth, but I have not gotten down to making my broth as yet. will update the review when I do.

To Make Jello
2 cups of juice, I used florida Natural “not from concentrate.” Apple juice or Lakewood or Ceres
2- 2.5 TB of gelatin (2.5 TB will give a really firm gel)
1/2-1 cup of raw fruit (optional)

Place 1.5 cups of juice in the freezer for about 20mins (to get really cold)
Heat 1/2 cup of Juice in a pan until tiny bubbles appear
Add Gelatin and dissolve (stir or whisk constantly)
Turn off heat
After 40 seconds add mix to the very cold juice
Pour mix in any container you desire (ice tray, molds cups)
Put jello mix in the refrigerator and let sit for at least 4-5 hours.
Better to leave overnight.

I have also started to take jello as a supplement
I dissolve one tablespoon in warm water on an empty stomach when I wake up, and mix some in fresh press or not from concentrate juice daily or smoothie.
I am planning to started taking a tablespoon at night right before bed, hope it helps me feel less empty when my daughte breast feeds during the night.

Papaya Gelatin Smoothie
2 cups fresh coconut milk
2.5 cup fresh papaya
1.5 cup ice
3 TB Gelatin
Coconut sugar or honey to taste

Put milk, papaya and ice in the blender.

Pulse until the ice is broken down and everything is liquefied.

Add the gelatin and pulse until incorporated

Enjoy!

I’m really pleased with this gelatin. I like it much better than Knox. I used the recommendation by another review to make Jello with 1 cup juice to 1 tablespoon gelatin and it works really well. Warm half of the juice and gelatin to dissolve then add the rest of the juice and combine then put in the fridge for about 4 hours.

I’ve only been adding it to my coffee for less than a week and I can already see an improvement in my skin! My hands had been really irritated and breaking open in places with this cold weather we’ve had. Now they are back to normal after using the gelatin. I’m putting 1.5 tsp in a cup of coffee for a total of about 1 tablespoon per day. Surprisingly I can’t taste it at all, which I’m really happy about. I’m also giving my 2 year old about 2 tsp per day and the rash on his face is significantly better, almost gone.

I’d like to try the Great Lakes brand but many reviews said it tastes bad so I’m hesitant. I like that this brand was recommended by Weston A. Price Foundation. A trusted source for lots of health information. I also use it to make baby formula.

I also like how they fill the container pretty much full. I find it annoying how most products have much larger containers than they need to appear you are getting more than what you really are. It wastes the plastic and I’d rather have smaller containers with less waste.

This product works!!!! I had problems with my knees that started a year ago, never paid attention to it until lone day they were so swollen I couldn't walk. I knew I have problems with joints and decided to supplement with this gellatin. In 1 week my knees got are so much better!!! Not just my joints, but my skin is clearing out of acne! I never thought that this product has so many benefits. I used to use it for homemade baby formula and now it's whole family's favorite supplement. We put it in the coffee. You can not taste or smell it. Love it!

Conclusion

There is no added taste but the consistency can get a little weird if you put it in after the coffee is in your cup. Be sure to drink it all or else you will have a cup full of coffee jello when it gets cold!
