hi

is there any fellow paleo people from the uk using gelatin?

all i found is this: http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=258448743

but no mention of grass fed or not, but is grass fed REALLY necessary for gelatin?

thank you

I can't answer your question but this should be the title of a graphic novel involving two young punk rockers in 70s Britain whose paleo diet takes them on some bizarre escapades.

but is it good enough you think? its just powder-shaped into leaves, or does gelatin have to be grass fed to benefit us?

Interesting question. That's the brand of gelatine I usually buy as the only other brand I've been able to find contains an added preservative (they only sell vegan 'gelatine' in my local health food shops). It's pork gelatine, so I don't know about the 'grass fed' bit. I'd presume not if it's coming from pigs.

Great Lakes sells in bulk from their storefront, or you can order their products separately from Peaceful-Planet.com. They have 3 gelatin products that they ship to the UK at low shipping rates. The beef gelatins are both from grass-fed beef. The beef gelatin will gel at lower temperatures, but the collagen hydrolase does not thicken. The porcine gelatin is a pork gelatin product.

  2. Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolase
  3. Great Lakes Porcine Gelatin

I don't know how much the 'grass-fed' thing matters, but just in terms of animal welfare I try to avoid buying animal products that aren't labelled'free-range' etc. And I can just about guarentee that Tesco won't be selling gelatin made from happy pigs :(

What are you using it for? I can probably count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I've used gelatin for anything!

I use this, when I haven't made my own gelatine rich stock from bones - either chicken, beef or pork.

http://www.greatlakesgelatin.co.uk/

It is very good, but needs to be mixed with something (the smell is more like glue that real stock!) and I believe that it is from grass fed cattle.
