  • Organic Gelatin... does it exist?

    Does anyone have a source for organic gelatin?

    There seems to be only one supplier in the U.S. - GoBioFood. It seems horribly expensive to me.

      Wow! No kidding...

      I like to buy organic when it makes sense, but that costs 5x as much as the beef gelatin that NOW Foods sells.

        Look into agar. I think it comes from seaweed and is what the vegans eat in place of gelatin. Not sure of the price, and how similar it is to real gelatin.

          I just bought a pepper crusted "summer sausage" that touted in its coating "gelatin and pepper". I'm trying not to think about the animals that contributed to that.

          FWIW, if you roast a turkey or chicken (etc), you really should save the bones and simmer the heck out of them (for hours) to leech protein, flavor, and gelatin from the whole carcass. You end up eating a lot of stew, but stew is awesome...so there's that.

            I think I will be buying some plain non-organice gelatin... I am looking for plain to make a dessert. The organic is very expensive. Thanks for all the replies.

                I'm trying to decide whether you meant to say that you use NOW brand or Knox brand. Maybe the companies merged, and it's become Know brand?

                Is this the stuff that you use?

                I bought some of that recently. It tastes better than the Knox brand that my grocery store has. I recall reading that Knox tends to use pork-based gelatin, but I can't remember where I read it. At any rate, I prefer the NOW beef-based gelatin. NOW tends to make pretty good stuff IMO.

                  Commercial gelatin is a purified product, so unless you're buying organic for the principle of it there's no difference.

                    Indeed. It is perfectly fine to get bulk gelatin, there is no difference.

                              I bought some Now beef gelatin but it has some flavor to it in spite of it saying unflavored.
