How to take Gelatin?

It's important to know that gelatin comes in two forms: gelling (food grade), and non gelling (hydrolysed). Hydrolysed collagen has been broken down to a very fine particle making it readily available to the body. It doesn’t need to be digested, it gets absorbed straight through the small intestine and into the blood stream. The difference between the two products is simple: one has a smaller molecular structure. Food grade gelatin has a very special job too. It aids digestion and absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Gelatin naturally binds to water, helping the flow of the digestive tract.

Food grade gelling gelatine

The food grade or gelling gelatin does not dissolve in cold water. It will mix into a paste, but not dissolve. You can use this particular gelatin in recipes or cooking. 

Hydrolysed non gelling gelatine

The hydrolysed collagen gelatin will easily dissolve in either hot or cold water, so it can be added easily to shakes or any other liquid.
