What exactly is leaf gelatine?

Natural product.

Gelatine is a purely natural product. It is obtained from collagen-containing, animal raw materials. As a rule, from pigskin and bones. In order to meet kosher and Halal requirements, we also produce varieties made from 100% bovine hide split and bones. With gelatine, liquids can be thickened, gelled, and converted into a solid mass. Because it is completely odorless and neutrally flavored, it has unlimited uses for desserts as well as savory dishes. Food gelatine is supplied in milled form, as gelatine powder, or in sheets, as leaf gelatine. The latter is particularly versatile and practical in its uses.

Simple portioning.

Leaf gelatine is a type of food gelatine. It is made by pouring a gelatine solution into sheets, drying them carefully, and cutting them into rectangular sheets. Their rectangular shape makes it particularly easy to portion them. No weighing or measuring is necessary. All you need to do is count the required amount of sheets. As a rule of thumb: For 500 ml liquid you need 6 sheets of gelatine.

Excellent results.

Leaf Gelatine is available in various grades. They differ in sheet weight. Each sheet offers the same Gelling Power. An excellent result is therefore guaranteed.
