    I just mix it right into my morning coffee. with a dollop of butter, a dollop of coconut oil.. and if I am feeling whacky, an egg, some cinnamon and vanilla. Gotta blend quickly before the egg cooks. But talk about FROTH! Holy moly!

      So, for breakfast I mixed a tbsp of porcine Great Lakes gelatin in some chicken broth along with an egg and kerrygold butter mixed in. Couldn't detect any flavor or change in the texture. Wish I had some OJ to chase it with. Need to go shopping. will definitely add gelatin to more things now!

        Just had an ounce softened in 1-1/2 cups of water, then heated. 2 tsp artificial sweetener and 1/8 tsp citric acid. Not bad. I feel good.

                  Question: does gelatin always have to be heated to activate it or will blending it with something cold have similar results? Will eating it as-is from the container change it's bioavailability?

                    I've added gelatin to a mix of olive oil and water that was cold and the gelatin firmed up the mix without it ever being heated. I mixed in some nutritional yeast and made a cheese sauce.

                    so it works without the heat.

                      It definitely has to be heated if what you are trying to do is set up a liquid into a solid.

                            The standard proportion is 1 tablespoon of gelatin to set up 2 cups of liquid.

                              I have been following. Thanks for sharing all the info.

                              I never knew until Primal that gelatin was an animal thing. Not what I think of when I think of flavored jell-o gelatin, so I was having a hard time wrapping my brain around it
