So, what is gélatines?

Gélatines are a type of food ingredient that are commonly used to create a wide variety of desserts and confectionery items. They are made from animal collagen, which is a protein found in the connective tissue of animals, usually from pigs or cows. The collagen is extracted through a process of boiling, which results in a gel-like substance that can be used to thicken and set liquids. Gélatines are popular due to their versatility and ability to create a variety of textures, from soft and creamy to firm and jiggly. They are also a key ingredient in many traditional dishes and are often used in commercial food production.
