So, what is gelatin gel?

Gelatin gel is a translucent and colorless substance that is derived from collagen, a protein found in animal connective tissues. It is commonly used as a gelling agent in food products such as jellies, marshmallows, and gummy candies. Gelatin gel has a unique texture that is soft and smooth, yet slightly firm, and it is often used to give desserts a silky and creamy mouthfeel. This versatile ingredient is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and photographic film. Gelatin gel is a popular choice among food manufacturers due to its low cost and ability to dissolve easily in hot water.
