Is Anybody Using Gelatin?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I read that gelatin is excellent for intestinal tract healing and can also alleviate sensitivities when taken with food. Gelatin can be used in either a powdered form or from meat stock. I want to use meat stock at home, but when I'm away I think it would be more convenient to used powdered gelatin. The problem is that I can't find out how much powdered gelatin you are supposed to use when taking it with meals. Can anybody please tell me how much to use?

Thanks.

Some gelatin has msg in it, and that is probably what they are having a reaction to. Gelatin made from meat stock is very healthy. All you have to do is simmer some bones in water for about four hours. The above article also states that powdered gelatin is also good. I actually read a post from someone in another forum that stated all of his food intolerance syptoms disappeared when he began eating homemade "jell-o" with all of his meals.

Gelatin is usually rendered from meat, and contains protein from that source.

A fundamental component of all protein is glutamic acid. It is one of twenty amino acids that make up proteins. When broken out of the protein chains, it combines with sodium to form monosodium glutamate (MSG). If you eat and digest anything containing protein, you are ingesting some amount of MSG.
