Halal Food Guide - Gelatine

Monday, April 07, 2014 20 Comments
When you think of gelatine, you think "jelly". While it's quite obvious that jelly is something we're careful about, you'd be surprised how many other products also contain gelatine. So this post is partially for vegetarians as well.

Basically, gelatine is produced by partial hydrolisis of collagen from animal by-products - skin, bones and connective tissues. 

It's mainly used as a gelling agent and is found in jelly, marshmallows and other confectionery (gummy bears, jelly babies etc.)
