    Where do you buy Gelatin?

    Primal Fuel
    Do supermarkets sell it?

    It's usually in the baking aisle in supermarkets here, but only small boxes. If you use a lot you're probably better buying in bulk. Try Amazon or eBay.

    Or just eating the whole animal.

    In the baking aisle
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Yeah that too.
    I made stock from chicken knecks the other night and that made about 2 litres of stock which set like jelly over night in the fridge.

    Probably wouldn't use it to make desserts though.

    Yes, I usually get the Knox brand which is sold with the jell-o.

    Ew stay away from the Knox stuff....go to amazon to get Great Lakes in bulk....grass fed gelatin is better than the processed Knox stuff. There are two kinds....green label better for smoothies but red label can work, just dissolve in hot water first.....good for making your own gummy candy etc. or yes....bone broth from chicken or beef or bison.....Wellness Meats has some pretty good packages.

    If your gonna get a highly process protein powder such as gelatin what makes being grass fed any better than not? There is no fat or micronutrients right? So if its strictly protein i.e. several amino acids that you are trying to increase as a portion of your diet, why bother paying more for any particular brand. First I slow cook bone meat with joints and cartilage, then I make bone broth, then if I need it for something I just buy the cheapest gelatin in the baking isle for home use. I guess from a sustainability standpoint you may want to support grass fed even for gelatin, but I don't believe it to make a difference if you are ingesting it for health purposes.
