Leaf gelatine is a true all-rounder. Hardly any other product can be used as variably. Leaf gelatine has wide-ranging properties: it binds, gels and stabilizes. Alternative products can usually only do one of them really well. Starch, for example. Although it binds, it doesn't gel. Agar also forms only little gel. Leaf gelatine, by contrast, makes for excellent gelling, is a cinch to use, and guarantees excellent results.
