    Pure gelatin is nothing but amino acids, usually for on the other end of the spectrum from muscle meat. I would guess that other ingrediants would be the culprit.

I also find that i can get almost all my protein from plants and gelatin and still gain muscle so i think that recommend protein intake is greatly exaggerated.

      As for you post above, yikes that is expensive!

      I'm sure a supplement won't disappoint me.
      "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
