WHY USE BEEF GELATIN POWDER?
An Essential Part of Your Healthy Diet. Beef Gelatin is a form of Collagen Peptides, which are short chain amino acids which are ‘cell-ready’ (easily digested) and easy to mix into hot and warm drinks like Bulletproof coffee. Peptides are crucial to maintaining healthy skin, hair, nails, joints and bones.
Much More Effective Than Collagen Creams. Gelatin powder taken as part of your healthy diet is far superior to topical creams or gels. Creams promise only a temporary cosmetic fix while increasing gelatin in your diet will help the body from within, where it can provide real benefits.

It makes perfect homemade gelatin. Flavorless and gels great. Highly recommend. I use it to add collagen to my diet for healthy skin, hair, and nails. And also make sugar free gelatin out of Aldi's flavored waters (cranberry, strawberry lemonade, tropical and lemonade flavors.) I'm on a weight loss plan and it helps me to snack on it instead of eating a high calorie snack. I soften 1 Tbs of gelatin in half a cup of flavored water, then heat to dissolve. Then add 1 1/2 cups of cold flavored water and stir until smooth. It chills up to a gelatin in 2-3 hours.
I purchased this gelatin because it was far less expensive than the brand I was buying. I also like that it's grass-fed beef. (I'm attempting to be more nutritionally conscious of what my “food” eats.)
I use this every day in my morning coffee. I only taste the most bare minimum of a difference. It doesn't change the texture of my drink when I do this. It comes with it's own scoop for servings as well, which is a nice little extra.
I will say as a side note, if you plan on mixing it into a drink with a spoon, you need to be mindful. I slowly pour the scoop of gelatin in my coffee while I'm stirring at the same time. If I don't do this, it becomes a goopy gunky mess – however, I recognize this can happen with any gelatin brand that isn't structured like Great Lakes. I'm willing to accept this so I can pay far less money for far more product to stay within my food budget.
Overall, I'm pretty happy for what I get for the price I pay and will purchase in the future if it remains at a lower cost and I continue to get a quality product.
I bathe in this to boost collagen. My skin is smooth and silky. This is the same science concept behind peptides used in high end face products. Some places are perkier and more taut. I also internally take two tbsp of collagen peptides (from free-range cows) once a day in my coffee, but have noticed the boost after bathing in it three times a week for three weeks now. Lovin it!
I was using “collagen peptides” from the same brand. Same price and identical nutritional values. I thought I would give this a try just to test something new. It is ok but it does have a little bit of flavor, and it gets rubbery in hot water. Viceversa, the collagen peptides were completely tasteless and would not clump.
The reason I am taking this is the Hydroxyproline that is in it (exact same amount in this as in Collagen Peptides).
In fact the only aminoacid that is in Collagen Peptides that is not found in Whey Proteins (which I take daily) is Hydroxyproline, which is a major component of the protein collagen.
There is a 2013 study, available also on PubMed, with title “Oral supplementation of specific collagen peptides has beneficial effects on human skin physiology: a double-blind, placebo-controlled study.”
From the abstract:
“69 women aged 35-55 years were randomized to receive 2.5 g or 5.0 g of CH or placebo once daily for 8 weeks, with 23 subjects being allocated to each treatment group. Skin elasticity, skin moisture, transepidermal water loss and skin roughness were objectively measured before the first oral product application (t0) and after 4 (t1) and 8 weeks (t2) of regular intake. Skin elasticity (primary interest) was also assessed at follow-up 4 weeks after the last intake of CH (t3, 4-week regression phase). At the end of the study, skin elasticity in both CH dosage groups showed a statistically significant improvement in comparison to placebo. After 4 weeks of follow-up treatment, a statistically significantly higher skin elasticity level was determined in elderly women. With regard to skin moisture and skin evaporation, a positive influence of CH treatment could be observed in a subgroup analysis, but data failed to reach a level of statistical significance.”
After I purchased this beef gelatin a few months ago, I started to use it to make coconut pudding, for I still had unflavored gelatin left. I used the same amount of beef gelatin to substitute unflavored gelatin for my coconut pudding which turned out great.
Very good gelatin, I add a scoop to my smoothie, electrolyte and elderberry concoctions. Love fact it has no taste, but adds a great texture to cold drinks. First pour cold drink, sprinkle gelatin on top, stir well, wait five minutes, then drink.
It ran out sooner than I desired. I had no objections about the product. When I started using it, both knees were hurting from spending several hours a day on my knees. I have taken it now for 4 months, but I realized that about two weeks after I stopped making my knees angry, the pain left.
I walk about an hour 6 days a week without any pain today. My supply also ran out today. I'll know in a few days what if any changes have happened since I no longer have access to the product. .
The gelatin can be mixed into both hot and cold liquids, but will gel if blended in cold.
