Genetically Engineered Gelatin? Tell Me something I don't know!

7/15/2011 07:05:00 PM ·

If you thought you were safe eating Jello, especially vegetarians, think again. If you haven't figured it out yet, Jello is made from denatured collagen. That collagen is found in the bones and skin of cattle and pigs, not to mention the capsules for the medications you take.

Now Chinese researchers have created a new gelatin using genes that produce human collagen and inserting them into yeast. The yeast then produces human-derived gelatin.

So the next time you enjoy your jello jigglers, you may just be eating human gelatin. That's too bizarre!
