It's easy in US, just go straight to amazon and buy some Knox, but UK it seems impossible! Anyone?

That would be bog standard intensive factory farmed gelatin prob wouldn't even guarantee which animal it come from let alone what it was fed.

Great Lakes is sooooo much better than NOW. It tastes great to me, but maybe glue tastes great to me too.

I use the Great lakes gelatin when I haven't managed to make bone stock. I get it from here http://www.greatlakesgelatin.co.uk I use it in stews, soups or something with a good strong taste / smell - it does tend to smell a bit like the old fashioned scotch glue otherwise!

I am also a bit curious about gelatin's ability to improve the appearance. Is there empirical evidence of its efficacy?

There is this website : greatlakesgelatin.co.uk. Grass-fed, that's a plus. A bit expensive, maybe, I don't know.

I'm not sure iHerb ships to the UK but I think so. They sell NOW gelatin. Not the best one out there, but it works for me (though it has the tendency to bloat me up slightly, I ordered some great lakes from the green variety, I think that's hydrolized, as East West Healing uses that one saying the other version often causes bloating).

and preferably from the uk. I'm thinking it would be best to go to a farmer and buy the bones with connective tissue. Seems to be a gap in the uk market for this.

It needs to be organic grass fed gelatin!

Most supermarkets have unflavoured gelatin. What a pointless question. Take a walk around your local sainsbury's.

You can buy Great Lakes Gelatin on Amazon. It's from grassfed cattle in Argentina and it's Kosher, if that matters to you. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Regular-Unflavoured/dp/B001LV6I8K/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1353059512&sr=8-5

I've bought unflavoured gelatin leaves at both Sainsburys and Waitrose.
