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

    I remember that on an episode of Superhuman Radio that eating gelatin would significantly increase HGH levels for 90-120 minutes after being consumed. People were taking it post workout in order to help build muscle. It was quite a bit though. Like the amount of whey in a whey protein shake.

    Agar tends to set up very firm and doesn't soften or melt at room temperature. It's what's in those little dessert cups called chupachups are made of and why they posed a choking hazard to children who didn't chew them thoroughly. It also tends to be a lot firmer than gelatin is too.

    healthy animals (organic or plain grass feed) makes healthy bones and skin. So there should be a difference IMO.

    Great lakes gelatin makes healthy gelatin, from healthy animals. Do any of you know of a similar product in europe?

    I also use Great Lakes gelatin. From their website's FAQ:

    4. How are the cattle raised?

    Our cattle are grass fed and slaughtered in Argentina and Brazil which is controlled by their respective Department of Agriculture. These countries have the same type of rigourous tests and inspections as the United States. Beef hides are the only product used to manufacture gelatin in these countries.
