How is great lakes and other commericial gelatins made? It obviously highly processed, perhaps under high temperatures.

Most super convenient things turn out to be bad!

My concern is that they are choc full of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs), acrylamides or other such nastys.

Yes, when I make gelatin it is always muddy looking. So there is a lot of filtering involved. It is possible that the bones are cooked at pressure, and therefore higher temepratures. But most people report positive health effects. I am fairly sure that they get grass fed bones, because each and every butcher I have tried, in Michigan and Ohio, they give you back 1/5 of the bones of the animal you bought, and only if you insist. I conclude it must be the Great Lakes company giving them money for our bones.
