Many friends must love to eat cakes or jelly. Children love these even more. We usually buy these things from outside. Can we make delicious cakes and jellies at home? Actually, it's not a problem as long as we have gelatin powder. So, let's see what organic gelatin powder is, and what is the difference between gelatin powder and gelatine powder.
Organic gelatin powder is mainly used to make jelly and other desserts. A substitute for gelatin powder is agar, which is made from seaweed. Another substitute is kudzu root. Generally, gelatin powder for sale is in the shape of noodles, powder or blocks, and is usually greyish-white in colour.
Gelatine powder, also known as fish gelatin powder, is a protein gel extracted from animals. Its uses are also very wide-ranging. It is not only used to make your jelly but also to make dessert such as mousse cakes. It is an essential ingredient. In addition, it is pure protein, and does not contain starch or fat. It is a very healthy, low-calorie food that can keep our skin supplied with enough collagen.
Compared with jelly powder, gelatine powder requires less usage and does not contain additives such as flavors and colours. We can adjust the taste as we like during the making process, and we can also add some of our favourite drinks to create unique flavoured jellies in moderation. Actually, both gelatin powder and gelatine powder are of animal origin, but they do have some differences in usage.
Hydrolysed gelatine powder is actually a biopolymer, and therefore it has some high polymer properties. For example, when we put dried gelatin powder in an appropriate amount of water, we will find that it slowly swells. The longer the time, the larger it swells. This phenomenon is also called dissolution swelling. However, when we put the swollen gelatin in water above 35 degrees Celsius, it will melt, but if the temperature is too high, it will also destroy the viscosity of the gelatin powder. Gelatin powder has a wide range of applications, mainly in food, such as milk candy, fruit juice soft candy, nougat, ice cream, jelly, and other foods.
The above content is about the basic knowledge of organic gelatin powder, the differences between it and gelatin powder, and the uses of gelatin powder. Now, we should all know a lot. When we are at home, we can use gelatin powder to make some small desserts or jellies, and we believe children will love them.
