Sure should have read yesterday. I was making sugar free orange/grapefruit/lemon marmalaid and didn't know how to thicken it. I didn't have pectin and the fruit didn't have but 3 seeds.
Although it did ok, I thought of puting gelatin in it but just didn't. Knowing it would punch up protein, I should have tried it.
I'm not sure where you would find grain fed gelatin source...would be nice.:)
type with you later. Junebug

I use an unflavored kosher gelatin made by Great Lakes. 25 calories. I put 1 TBSP. in my cereal each morning. It certainly does thicken up the almond milk. It is supposed to be very good for your joints, as well as hair and nails. I'll do anything to keep my arthritis at bay. I like it as a source of protein for my morning meal. I even give it to my dog in her food - she has bad hips and knees.
My dog is not my whole life but she makes my life whole.

Gelatin is derived from cartilage, so it's great for a lot of health issues (rather than taking glucosamine / chondroitin, I've read). In the 70s and 80s, we used to drink it for our nails -- can't say I noticed a difference but many swear by it!
While I grecup using Knox brand, I've heard some try to find pastured sources. Those aren't readily available within 100mi of me, though.
Came across this article and I did not know that gelatin had more protein and (according to article) less additives then Protein shakes. I also didn't know you could use it at a thickener. Can't find anything on gelatin not being paleo so I thought I would post this for anyone interested. Enjoy!
