There is a bread recipe that calls for Unflavored Gelatin as well as some other recipes.

I bought the Knox brand, but have not used them yet

What is the point of Unflavored Gelatin?

Can you omit it? Or sub?

Thank you very much!

Have a nice weekend :D

It gels. I would not omit. I've used it before.

Gelatin adds extra protein (helps loaf stability and promotes elasticity to your recipe), and reduces crumbliness. You may be able to leave it out, it really depends on the recipe. I usually use it when a recipe calls for it.

You can sub agar agar flakes for it but I haven't found any yet to try. Agar flakes is from a veggie source and gelatin from animals. Vegans don't use gelatin. Can't tell you much more w/o reading up on it again. My dd has been a vegan for 3 months and won't use the gelatin anymore. It has really helped her look at her food differently as far as health is concerned. Its gross how they make gelatin. <_<

Carol Fenster-it adds moisture and helps bind ingredients together.

a bit of useful info:

Thank you everyone for the replies.

Purple -- I saved the link you sent and looked at it thanks :)

I think I saw the Agar-agar at the health food store here in town -- might take a look at that. Thanks

Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Thanks again.
