Our premium quality Gelatine ( gelatin ) is available in powder form and it can be used to create a wide range of textures and consistencies, from soft and jiggly to firm and solid. When gelatine ( gelatin ) is mixed with a liquid and then cooled, it forms a gel-like structure due to the unique properties of collagen, which allow it to solidify and hold water.
Special Ingredients offers Beef Gelatine in addition to Vegetarian and Vegan Gelatine ( gelatin ) alternatives.
As beef gelatine is derived from animal sources, there are also vegetarian and vegan alternatives available for those who follow plant-based diets. These alternatives are typically made from plant-based ingredients, such as agar-agar (derived from seaweed), carrageenan (derived from red algae), and pectin (derived from fruits), and they are used in food products to achieve similar gelling or thickening effects as gelatine.
It's important to note that the type of gelatine used in a particular product may vary depending on the specific application and desired properties, and it's always essential to read product labels and check for any dietary restrictions or preferences.
