So, what is fish gelatin?

Fish gelatin is a protein-rich ingredient derived from the collagen found in fish skin and bones. This versatile ingredient is often used as a gelling agent in food production, providing a clear, colorless, and tasteless gel that is perfect for use in desserts, jellies, and other foods. Unlike many other types of gelatin, fish gelatin is considered to be a healthier option, as it is low in fat and calories, and contains important vitamins and minerals like calcium and phosphorus. It is also a popular choice for those following certain dietary restrictions, such as halal or kosher diets.
