What’s the difference between collagen and gelatin?
Perfect Supplements nailed in their explanation between the two:
“Think of it like apples vs apple sauce – same core ingredient, just a different preparation. Collagen is the protein found in bones and connective tissues…When you make bone broth, you are cooking the bones, releasing the collagen and in effect making your own gelatin.”
Furthermore, the amino acid profile of collagen and gelatin is nearly identical. The biggest difference is gelatin will gel and collagen will not.
Collagen (gelatin) is the most abundant protein the human body. It has an important job in numerous bodily functions.
One serving of collagen has 10 grams of protein, zero fats and zero carbs. In fact, Perfect Supplements Hydrolyzed Collagen has the highest protein content in the industry.
Some of the potential health benefits of collagen are:
- Improves skin health by promoting younger, firmer skin.
- Supports bone, teeth, and joint health and builds and restores muscles
- Improves gut function and digestion
- Supports a healthy metabolism and keeps appetite in check
- Promotes healthy brain function and deeper sleep
- Keeps excess inflammation in check
It’s important that you source the best collagen products on the market. That’s why I love, use and absolutely recommend Perfect Supplements. They have the the highest quality gelatin products. Their collagen/gelatin is
- Sourced exclusively from Brazilian grass fed cows
- 100% natural and pesticide and hormone free
- Lactose and Dairy Free
- 100% collagen protein — no fillers or flow agents
- Lab Tested with Proof of Purity and backed by 100% money back guarantee
Bovine gelatin will gel or thicken when chilled. It can be used in any recipe that calls for gelatin or thickening agent. It works great in gummy treats, delicious mousse, marshmallows and even soups.
Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen from Grass-Fed Cows
Hydrolyzed collagen goes through multiple levels of processes that break down into much smaller, easier to digest and lighter collagen peptides. Why is this necessary? Because shorter chain collagen peptides are easier for the body to absorb.
Because of it’s low molecular weight, hydrolyzed collagen is tasteless, odorless and dissolves in any liquid, hot or cold.
I admit, this hydrolyzed collagen is more convenient to use than it’s gelatin sister. I use this in my Herbal Coffee and Superfood Hot Chocolate and my kids add this to their smoothies as “protein powder.”
Dessicated Liver – Nutrient-dense source of naturally occurring protein and iron. The health benefits of dessicated liver are many. Liver may boost energy, immune system, and metabolism. It also may improve digestion and respiratory strength. Liver also has the potential to maintain healthy cholesterol, blood sugar and overall cardiovascular health. Perfect Supplements carries dessicated liver in pill form (easy supplementation) and powder (easy add-in to smoothies & soups).
Fermented Kale – We sing the praises of kale but did you know it has the potential to be even more nutritious. It is already naturally packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. But like a lot of vegetables, kale can be more nutrient dense with fermentation. This fermented kale is one of nature’s greatest superfoods fermented for optimal digestibility and nutrition. Perfect Supplements has fermented kale in powder form, making it easy to add to smoothies, juices, and other liquids.
