Can you please give suggestions on how to flavor it at home? I am relatively new to Paleo and want to make better snacks for my kids, too. They love Jello.

As for the colors and flavors, I'm not sure which ones we are talking about specifically, so we can't really discuss their "toxicity" until we have identified which ones. There are many however, that are perfectly harmless, so if those were involved I would see no issue with it. But once again, they are technically not paleo.

I don't understand why people make such a big deal about aspartame, it's nothing more than a peptide composed of two perfectly natural amino acids which are already in people's diets in much greater amounts: aspartic acid and phenylalanine. You eat an egg, a steak, a fish, a nut, etc and you have consumed both of these amino acids. The only difference is that when these two amino acids are combined the structure of the molecule tastes sweet to the tongue by the way it interacts with the taste receptors. No need to stress out about aspartame. However, I agree, it is definitely not paleo.

Um, you do know what nutrasweet is and what harm it causes, as well as the artificial colors and flavors, right?

No, it's not Paleo -- artifical sweeteners are typically frowned upon. Canola oil is too -- although it's the least offensive of the seed oils.

The problem with sugar free stuff is the artificial sweetners. They can cause big cravings for carbs as well as other problems.

Sure, if you want to give them to your enemies.

If you really want to harm your own health, by all means, you can use such evil things. But it's not paleo by any stretch of anyone's imagination.

Use butter from grassfed cows, and if you like gelatin, make it from a quality unflavored gelatin and flavor it yourself.

Why would you use canola margarine when you could use the real stuff....butter! Hydrogenated oils are garbage please do not use them, use real oils, like coconut, olive, butter, etc. I guess sugar free jello can't hurt, it's basically just gelatin right? I see no harm in plain gelatin, you could even puree some berries and mix it with the plain gelatin to make a paleo berry jello.
