Is Beef Gelatin Powder organic?

There is no gelatin on the market that can claim it is organic because no certification like this exists for gelatin. However, our gelatin is organic compliant which means it is all natural, Non-GMO, has no synthetic solvents, carriers, processing aids, or preservatives used, and is not irradiated. If there ever was an organic certification program for gelatin, our Grass Fed Beef Gelatin would certainly meet or exceed the requirements.

Where is it manufactured? Where are the cows from?

We source Beef Gelatin Powder only from young, healthy cows, humanely grass-fed and pasture-raised on the world-renowned natural grasslands of Brazil and Argentina.

We package all of our products, including Beef Gelatin Powder, in a USA facility which follows GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). This ensures consistent quality, freshness and safety. We'd never make or personally use products packaged outside of the US, that don't follow these strict guidelines.

Can you mix Beef Gelatin Powder with water and drinks? 

Although Beef Gelatin Powder will mix into hot liquids, it's best to mix with a small amount of cold water and let it bloom for a few minutes. Then add hot liquid and stir until dissolved. Note, that it will begin to thicken and gel as it cools (just like jello).

If you want something to mix into liquids without changing the consistency, you may want to have a look at our Beef Collagen Powder.

What is the difference between Collagen Powder and Gelatin Powder? 

The main difference between Beef Collagen Powder and Beef Gelatin Powder is how you use it. 

  • Beef Collagen Powder is designed to dissolve easily and completely in a wide variety of foods and beverages, including smoothies, shakes, coffee.
  • Collagen Powder dissolve in both cold and hot liquids.
  • Collagen Powder will not gel.
  • Beef Gelatin Powder is best suited for baking and for making things like homemade gummy bears, Jello, etc. and it is a perfect natural thickener for sauces, stews, etc.
  • Beef Gelatin Powder will gel and thicken when mixed with cold liquids. If you try to add Gelatin Powder to cold or even lukewarm water, it will clump, and even if you got it to dissolve, it would form a gelatinous blob as soon as it cooled down.
  • Gelatin must first be “bloomed” in a cold liquid. This process plumps up the granules and makes them easier to stir into your food. Add Gelatin Powder to cool water and allow it to “bloom”. Then add hot liquid and stir until dissolved.

Collagen Powder has similar health benefits to the Beef Gelatin Powder. They both deliver important amino acids. The only differences between them are that the amino acid bonds in Collagen are broken down, it is easier to digest, is absorbed by the body faster, and is good for people with digestion problems.
