Why is gelatin consumed?
Gelatin has been used for generations to make all kinds of delicious treats like jellies, sauces, and desserts. What we might not realise is how good naturally sourced gelatin actually is for us. Gelatin is a nutritive complete protein source which provides essential amino acids necessary for tissue building and repair within multiple areas of the body.
How is gelatin good for you?
As a natural source of protein, our gelatin is made up of essential, non-essential and conditionally-essential amino acids to contribute to the building and repair of bodily tissues. Specifically our gelatin is 20 percent glysine, 10 percent glutamine, 12 percent proline, and 12 percent hydroxyproline which are the amino acids that contribute the building blocks necessary for this to occur and will influence the beneficial effects the protein content has on these tissues.
How is gelatin made?
NutraOrganics Natural Gelatin comes from pasture raised Australian cows. Type I and III collagen proteins are predominantly sourced from gelatin manufacture, going through a natural extraction process to create an odourless, colourless, and flavourless gelatine powder.
