I see many people here recommending Great Lakes Gelatin, but how do you take it? I personally measure 10 grams of regular supermarket gelatin and put the powder (sand-sized particles) in cold water and drink it that way, but is that the best way to take it? It's not really palatable this way.

There are different suggestions on the can, and the cold-water one is one of them. You're right, it's not very palatable. I sometimes add it to smoothies or other foods (especially when slow-cooking). I also use hot water and may add some salt or other seasoning.

I mix it in tepid water and then add to coffee or tea. Gelatin doesn't dissolve well in very hot or very cold liquids, so it helps to premix. If it's in hot tea or coffee I don't mind it. I find that it makes the beverages taste richer, if that makes sense, but it doesn't change the flavor at all.

Does Great Lakes have the same mineral content of a homemade bone broth or are you just getting the gelatin?

I soften it in water, then add to yogurt.

I just ordered some and I plan on adding it to my homemade energy bars, anything cooked in the slow cooker and I'll probably try it out in my coffee.
