Health Benefits of gelatin

Gelatin is a colorless and colorless stabilizer and thickener that is used for desserts such as pudding, mousse, marshmallows, sweets, cakes, ice cream, some yogurts, and, of course, fruit gelatin, like gelatin. Gelatin is also used to make some non-food items, such as shampoos or skincare products.

Thickening agents like gelatin can be made from different ingredients. Gelatin is made by boiling the skin, tendons, ligaments or bones of animals (usually cows or pigs) in water.

This process releases collagen, a protein that offers structure and is also a more abundant non-human protein. After extracting the collagen, it is concentrated and filtered, then cooled, extruded, and dried to make gelatin.

Because products of animal origin are used to make gelatin, it is not suitable food for vegans and even some non-vegans choose not to consume it to advocate for animal rights. But there are also alternatives to gelatin that are made from non-animal sources.

Gelatin Nutrition Facts

Or USDA offers the following nutritional information for a single about or about one tablespoon (7 grams) of gelatin.1 However, a whole package cannot represent a single serving.

According to Knox, a company that makes gelatin, is more likely than a sea portion of 1.75 grams. One company claims on its website that a single serving provides 6 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 grams of carbohydrates, and 1.6 grams of protein. This serving size is roughly equivalent to a 1/2 cup serving when mixed with water.

Calories: 23.4
Fat: 0g
Sodium: 13.7 mg
Carbohydrates: 0g
Fiber: 0g
Sugars: 0g
Protein: 6g


While gelatin offers about 30 calories per tablespoon, none of those calories come from carbohydrates. There are 0 grams of total carbohydrates, including 0 grams of sugar and 0 grams of fiber in gelatin.

Because gelatin does not contain carbohydrates, it does not affect blood sugar levels when consumed. However, it should be noted that gelatin is not usually consumed alone. It is often used to thicken desserts that may be high in sugar and carbohydrates and to help raise blood sugar levels. But the presence of gelatin will not change the impact.


There is no fat in a one-tablespoon serving of gelatin. Even a 100 gram serving contains less than one gram of fat.


Gelatin provides approximately 6 grams of protein per 1 tablespoon protein. But remember that you want to consume much less than that. If you eat 1.75 grams, it doesn't even mean a full gram of protein. Therefore, jelly is not considered a food rich in protein.

Vitamins and Minerais

Gelatin does not provide important vitamins or minerals. Even if consumed in larger amounts than usual in recipes, the powder does not provide any significant micronutrients.

Health benefits

People who use gelatin as food in recipes can see no substantial impact on their health by including the ingredient in their diet. They are consumed in such small quantities and in many cases, they are used in foods that are not consumed every day. But there are some studies that have suggested that the use of gelatin can provide certain health benefits. There are also some medical uses for pharmaceutical-grade gelatin that are notable.
