So, what is želatina?

Želatina is a protein-rich ingredient derived from collagen in animal bones and connective tissues. It has no taste, odor or color and is a popular ingredient in sweets, desserts, and jellies as it provides a firm texture when cooled. Želatina has several health benefits like aiding digestion and joint health due to its collagen content. However, not all forms of želatina are created equal - the quality varies based on the source and processing method. It's important to choose high-quality, grass-fed sources for optimal nutrition. Additionally, vegetarians and vegans can opt for plant-based alternatives like agar-agar.
