Is liivate vegan?

Liivate, also known as gelatin or collagen, is a colorless and tasteless ingredient commonly used in the food industry as a gelling agent. It is derived from animal connective tissues, such as skin and bones, which are first cleaned, treated, and then boiled to extract the collagen. Liivate is commonly used in making jellies, gummy candies, marshmallows, and other desserts that require a smooth and bouncy texture. It is also used in savory dishes like aspics, terrines, and meat glazes. Despite its widespread use, some people avoid liivate due to its animal-derived origin and prefer to use plant-based alternatives such as agar-agar or carrageenan.

Liivate is a non-vegan food ingredient.
