From USA. A translucent, colorless, almost tasteless ‘food’ that has been used since ancient Egypt…you know it as gelatin. Athletes and beauty queens love it for its effect on hair, nail and muscle cell growth without contributing any fat. Others eat gelatin for the collagen that strengthens bone and eases joint pain. Today’s cooks can throw some gelatin into a smoothie, or make an aspic or a dessert with gelatin convenience the Egyptians didn’t have.
