Benefits of Gelatin

  • No additives, preservatives, colouring or flavours
  • Natural source of both essential and non-essential amino acids, as well as collagen
  • Helps improve gut health
  • Very versatile – can be used to make breads, pancakes, soups, homemade jellies, panacotta, cheesecake, thicken sauces and added to hot drinks.  

Gelatin is a wonderful source of collagen. Collagen comes from the Greek word for glue ‘Kolla’ – holds the body together.  Gelatin is the collagenous proteins broken down into amino acids.  These are the building blocks for the body and used to make connective tissue – it supports the skin and helps to retain its suppleness.  Collagen is also found in your bones.

Our collagen product slows with age.  When our bodies are low in collagen we are more prone to injuries.  Collagen also helps with recovery after an injury.  Research is currently looking at the use of gelatin to increase the recovery of broken bones and skins wounds.

Gelatin provides a natural source of protein and amino acids which are essential for many part of the body.  This can be beneficial for picky eaters and people in need of extra protein.  Gelatin does not contain the full range of amino acids so it is important to eat other complete protein sources as part of your diet.  

Gelatin helps to balance Methionine.  Methylation can occur in the body when we eat high amounts of muscle meat which contains methionine (an essential amino acid).  At high levels, methylation can contribute to premature aging and other health problems. Rather than avoiding eating muscle meat, this can be balanced out by eating other parts of the animal which are rich in proline and glycine such as gelatin. This is why here at Changing Habits we promote a wide and varied diet.  

Gelatin can also help with digestion.  Gelatin helps to keep water in the digestive track as it absorbs water.  This helps to promote healthy bowel movements and make you feel fuller for longer.  Gelatin helps to simulate stomach acid production which is an important step in the digestion process – a lack of stomach acid can cause a cascade of problems in the body.   Glutamine can help to repair the small intestine.  The villi in the small intestine help us to break down and absorb the minerals in our food.  Villi have a rapid cell turn over and glutamine helps them to heal and grow. 

Our Gelatin story

Gelatin is a product that Cyndi uses regularly because of its wonderful healing properties. Gelatin was a regular part of the traditional diet but in the modern world, nose to tail eating is no longer as common meaning we miss out on the wonderful amino acids that were available in the bones, skin and joints of the animal.  Unable to source certified organic gelatin within Australia, our organic gelatin is supplied by a 5th generation family owned business in Europe, recognised for their high quality standards.

Gelatin can be used for both sweet and savoury dishes.  It has a gelling ability which causes a liquid to set.  1 teaspoon of gelatin will soft set 1 cup of liquid or use 1 tablespoon for a firm set.

Add to warm water to dissolve.  Never add boiling liquid to gelatin as it will lose its gelling property. 

100% organic porcine. Bloom 200-230.

Why did we choose porcine?

We wanted to source the best product on the market, using the highest quality ingredients and the best production methods. We searched the globe, including going and visiting the actual factory and this was the product that came out on top.

It was important to us that the product was 100% certified organic as not only does the raw ingredient have to meet the strict guidelines but also the product methods.

Our Gelatin power is made from 100% organic porcine.

Gelatin contains both essential and non-essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks for the human body and each amino acid has different uses.

Proline and glycine are two of the conditional amino acids found in gelatin. Conditional amino acids are not essential as the body can make them under normal circumstances. However, they are required during times of illness and stress when the body’s natural ability to produce these amino acids will reduce.

Proline is required after injury and surgery for tissue repair. It can also promote healthy bones, skin and cartilage. Proline helps the body to break down proteins for use in healthy cells.

Glycine is found in high concentrations in the skin, connective tissues and muscle tissues. Glycine is important in many roles in the body including the digestive system and nervous system. It is also involved in the transmission of chemical signals in the brain.

Hydroxyproline, a conditional amino acid and lysine, an essential amino acid are also found in gelatin and are both required by the body to make collagen and cartilage.

The amino acid glutamine helps with gut health as it is required during cell proliferation. Gut cell turnover is high and they prefer to feed on glutamine. This amino acid helps the villi of the small intestine heal and grow and also enhances recovery.
