In Jell-O
The gelatin comes from the marrow of animal bones. The same thing seen in a pan that has cooked a turkey or ham. The heat allows the gelatin to escape from the meat and bones. Then they add artificial colorings, artificial flavorings, and refined sugar. There are other additives put in to preserve it, and keep it from clumping.


Gelatin is animal bone / bone marrow.

Jello is actually quite healthy for you, sans the sugar. It's served at all hospitals as part of most diet programs and is usually the food given to outpatients to "test" their stomach.

A more accurate formula would be Jello = Gelatin + Water + Flavoring/Coloring.

What is Jello made out of?

Jello is made out of gelatin. Gelatin is made out of collagenextracted from boiled animal bones, animal skins, animal connectivetissue and cartilage. I know it sounds a bit gross but that's howit is jiggly. Sugar, color, and flavors are added to make Jellomore appetizing than plane gelatin.

How does jello work?

HOW JELLO WORKS . . . Jell-O is composed of long, stick-like molecules. When you dissolve it in hot water, those molecules separate, but as the liquid cools, they begin to stick together like a giant heap of straws. The water flows slowly through these straws because of frictional effects. The result is a stiff material that is given its structure by the straw heap. If you leave the Jell-O long enough, the water will seep out and make puddles on the plate.. So disgusting if you start to think about what is actually in it. Yup, jelly is made from cow or pig hooves, bones and connective tissue, all ground up and boiled. Yummy. The basic recipe for jelly is gelatin, water, sugar, flavorings and food coloring. The gelatin is the important bit. Gelatin is basically a processed version of the protein collagen. You have probably heard of collagen before - this protein makes up a third of your body and is found in skin, bones and tendons, making them slightly elastic. As you get older, the collagen deteriorates and that's why our joints get stiffer and wrinkles start to appear in our once smooth skin.. So how do they make gelatin from animal collagen? To start with, they grind up all the cow or pig parts and treat them with a strong acid or base. After this, it all gets boiled and the collagen is partly broken down. The gelatin can be skimmed off the surface of the liquid, dried into a powder and be used in jelly.. As I mentioned, collagen is a protein. It is made up of long chains of amino acids, with every third amino acid being glycine. Lots of the other residues are proline or hydroproline. It lacks tryptophan, an essential amino acid that we can't make ourselves, so isn't a very good nutritionally source for humans, but who cares. So these long protein chains exist as a triple helix at room temperature- imagine this like three bits of spaghetti all twisted together. The chains in the helix are linked together by covalent bonds.. When you make jelly, you add boiling water that provides the gelatin molecules with enough energy to break the bonds holding the chains together. Now, jelly is pretty amazing stuff as it is capable of holding around 10 times its own weight in water. This occurs because as the jelly cools down, the helices start to reform and cross linking occurs. The chains form areas of tangled protein with pockets between them- the water gets trapped in these pockets. This is what gives the jelly its characteristic wobble!. What happens to gelatin when you add boiling water? The energy of the heated water is enough to break up the weak bonds holding the gelatin strands together. The helical structure falls apart, and you are left with free polypeptide chains floating about in solution.

What is jello made from?

Gelatin does not occur "free" in nature. It has to be made or manufactured. However, it is a natural ingredient, in that it derived from natural ingredients and has no additives. Nowadays, it is made mainly from beef bones and hides and pork skin, which contain protein collagen, the essential ingredient required for the production of gelatine.It is a lengthy process in which extraneous substances, such as minerals, fats and albuminoids are removed by chemical and physical treatment to give a purified collagen. It involves several cleansing and purification steps and is finally dried in an air chamber, then processed into the end product (sheets, granules, powder)Gelatin is pretty much a bad thing- it is found in marshmallow, sour cream, jello, pudding, and many other places. It is made from animal fats left over after they slaughter it :( the jello factory

What is a jello shot?

I may be wrong but in line with "jello" being an American term for "jelly" and having had jelly shots myself, i think it would a vodka jelly shot, which is quite literally jelly made with the inclusion of vodka. I believe the general thoughts on the matter were that as it isn't a liquid it wouldn't digest as fast, therefore if you were to consume to many they would more or less hit you at the same time. Of course it doesn't have to be vodka but that seems to be the preferred ingredient.

No. It is made of animal bones. Seriously, ask your science teacher.. Yes, It's Pork. Here is the URL to the page on the manufacturers site.. http://kraftfoods.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/kraftfoods.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=117&p_created=1072674000&p_sid=W1kbQcHj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9Niw2JnBfcHJvZHM9MCZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9cG9yaw**&p_li=&p_topview=1. Question Is the gelatin used in your products safe? Answer The majority of gelatin used in KRAFT products is from North American pork, and BSE does not occur in pigs. Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other scientific experts have determined that the manufacturing methods used to produce gelatin -- no matter what the animal or geographic source -- ensure that the gelatin supply is safe. International research, including a review by the EU Scientific Steering Committee, has confirmed that gelatin manufacturing processes remove and inactivate any contamination by BSE. Furthermore, we have had stringent processes in place to prevent BSE in gelatin for many years. During processing the materials used to make gelatin are exposed to extensive purification procedures, including prolonged exposure to both acid and alkaline conditions, which have been demonstrated to substantially enhance the safety of gelatin. The raw materials are also exposed to other processes such as sterilization, filtration, and demineralization, which have also been shown to significantly enhance the safety of gelatin.

Who is the founder of JELLO?

The original patent holder for this dessert was Peter Cooper in 1845. He sold the patent to Pearle B. Waite who added flavors and the name in 1897.

What is really in Jello?

Jello contains five basic ingredients: gelatin/gelatine (British spelling), water, sugar, artificial sweetener/flavors, and food coloring. Vegetarians in particular will be interested to know the specific contents of gelatin. From the related link comes the following information: "Gelatin (US spelling) or gelatine (British spelling) (used to make Jell-o and other desserts) is made from the boiled bones, skins and tendons of animals. An alternative substance is called Agar-Agar, which is derived from seaweed. Another is made from the root of the Kuzu. Agar-Agar is sold in noodle-like strands, in powdered form, or in long blocks, and is usually white-ish in color." (www.ivu.org) Another link cites that gelatin contains collagen from cow or pig bones, horse hooves, and other animals' connective tissues (source: HowStuffWorks recipes).

Where is jello made?

What is Jell-O®? Dietary gelatin is a long molecule called a polymer. Poly is a Latin word that means 'many', and a 'mer' is a building block - chemically speaking. More specifically, gelatin is a polypeptide. Polypeptides are polymers in which every third mer unit is a Glycine molecule. Gelatin is used in marshmallows and yogurt. It coats medicines to make them easy to swallow. It is found in casinos - coating playing cards, and it binds match heads together. It is used in forensic science to simulate human tissue. Gelatin is also used to clarify beer after brewing. Ossein (collagen) Immerse in dilute acid (24-48 hours) Extract with hot water (50-100C) Box of Jell-O® Wash, neutralization Filtration (multiple passes) Concentration Bleach, ion exchange Chilling, drying to 10-15%moisture Grinding, packaging Gelatin Manufacture How is Jell-O® Made? In their natural form, polypeptides are crystallized, and are called collagen. Polypeptides occur in the hides, bones, and connecting tissue of mammals. In collagen, polypeptides have a triple helix which is similar in structure to DNA which is shaped as a double helix. Collagen is not watersoluble, so it needs to be modified to make gelatin The first step in the manufacture of gelatin from collagen is to dissolve the collagen. This is done by boiling in either a strong acid, or a strong base. During the process, the polypeptide molecules are broken in a process called hydrolysis, and unraveled. Type A polypeptides from the acid process are a little different from the type B polypeptides formed by the base process. The next step is to neutralize the systems. Acid is added to the basic solutions, and base is added to the acidic solutions. After this, some Jell-O® is made at the plant. Hot water is added, and all the stuff that shouldn't be in there (pig hair, bone chips, etc.) is filtered out. The next step is to boil off as much water as possible, and then let it chill. After the Jell-O® is made, it is dried and ground up. What happens when I make Jell-O®? Polypeptides, like Jell-O®, are soluble in water at high temperatures (40C+), but not at lower temperatures. When a water solution of Jell-O® is cooled, the molecules attempt to return to their triple helix state. This begins at several points in the solution simultaneously. A given polypeptide chain is likely involved in several short helices along its length. In order for one helix segment to grow, it must unravel another helix. The final state is one in which molecules are frozen in place, in a configuration that they would prefer not to be. The molecules form a loose network in three dimensions, filled with fluid; that is, if some of this fluid is removed, the network dries, and the gel shrinks. If fluid is added, the network stretches, and the gel expands. It's not quite stable, but it's not changing either so it is called 'metastable.' edit by xrainstorm: they didn't ask what jello was, just where it is made. like where the factories are. right?
