What is gelatine?

Gelatine is a clear, tasteless protein that thickens and solidifies when dissolved in liquids and kept below a certain temperature. It is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans as the protein is sourced from the collagen in animal bones. Gelatine can be bought in two forms – leaf and powdered – and is commonly used to make jelly, panna cotta and marshmallow.
