A dry ingredient made from natural animal protein that can thicken or set a liquid. Gelatin is available in unflavored and flavored (Jell-O) forms. When using, make sure the gelatin powder is completely dissolved. Available as a powder, or in dissolvable ‘sheets’.
Do not mix gelatin with figs, fresh pineapple (canned pineapple is not a problem), fresh ginger, guava, kiwifruit, and papaya, as these foods contain an enzyme that prevents gelatin from setting up.
