Does not dissolve well
I tried this variety because it said that the cows were raised on pasture. It does not dissolve as well as the other gelatin products I have used in the past. We put in our coffee in the morning (soften with cream first) and there is always a glob in the bottom of the cup when you have finished the coffee. It may work well for making gelatin desserts.

This seems to aid digestion and can make my morning coffee feel like a meal when I add a tablespoon to the cold coconut milk and cinnamon before pouring the coffee. My nails are strong and my skin is very elastic. I do run out occasionally, but always come back for more after a few days! Would give it five stars if I knew more about the animals it comes from. Some say they are grass fed but it seems that would be on the package if true?

A bit disappointing
We had been using Kosher Great Lakes Gelatin (green label). When needing more, that product was not available. I ordered the Beef Hide gelatin (red label) as a substitute. What a difference! Where the kosher gelatin dissolves easily in any temperature (tea, coffee, cold water, etc.), the beef hide is fussy. The best way I find to use it is sprinkling it on cereal and giving it time to soften. On hot cereal, it is least obvious. Cold cereal is not so pleasant. We will use it up and not order more. Back to the green label, even it if takes time to get it!

great for nails
