Hey Kids: The Truth About Jell-0


Gelatin is a processed version of the protein collagen, a simple protein that makes up one-third of all proteins in the human body. The main source of the collagen that is used in Jell-O comes from hooves, bones, connective tissue found on cows, horses and pigs.

That's right little children, every time you eat that little, wobbly, fat-free, sugar-free, cherry-flavored glob... you are eating ole' Bessy's cow toenails and boiled bones. Darn that Bill Cosby, darn him to heck.

Join the club. However, I won't be giving up my Mother-in-Law's jell-o desert. Every. Bring on the hooves baby.

Lol!! Seth, what an information...I know I will remember this because even I, a kid at heart, still enjoy Jello when offered one. This also leads me to recall the movie that compared two women as jello and creme brulee. Thanks for the memory. :-)
