For thousands of years, gelatin-rich foods have been a key part of diets all over the world. For as long as our Paleo ancestors have been cooking food over a fire they would have been eating every part of the animals they caught – including the bones! Bone broths being one of the most nourishing foods on the planet.
From oxtail stew in Africa, bouillon in France, or your Grandma’s ‘age-old-cure-for-everything’ chicken broth! Many of the most nourishing dishes in the world are rich in gelatin.
Gelatin is a unique protein that is a great source of amino acids Glycine and Proline – which are commonly low in most protein sources.
Collagen powder is simply hydrolysed gelatin. Meaning the protein is broken down into an absorbable form – for quick uptake by the body.
