When I first went to buy this gelatin I hesitated because it didn't state that it was organic, and I definitely didn't want to be ingesting gelatin from cattle that had been fed GMO corn, soy, etc. But, because many of the NOW products ARE organic, it occurred to me that maybe there was some small technical detail that kept them from being able to claim that it was organic, so I went ahead and bought it. After I received it, I read on the package "... NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real."
Just thought you might be interested in knowing that.
BTW... when mixing this gelatin with water (be it hot or cold water), I found that it clumps quite badly if I put the gelatin in the container first and then pour the water on it. But if I put some water in the container and then mix the gelatin into it, it doesn't clump.
As you can imagine, this makes great jello!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brynn doesn't break me out
I break out super easily from Biotin, Bamboo Extract, too much iodine, and other concentrated gelatin I have tried.
This doesn't break me out! I would definitely recommend to breakout prone people!
I have also read that gelatin is hard to digest for some people and I have had no problems with that at all. Great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by HeavyPsi Better alternatives
This is the third gelatin product I've tried, and this is the worst of the three. It doesn't mix well and the taste is not good. I cannot tell if it benefited my body. There are better alternatives to this, including NOW's Joint Support Powder and Great Lakes Beef Gelatin.

I can't comment on much more than that...I guess some people just cannot tolerate gelatin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by glolilly Not crazy about it
i didn't stick with it for more than 2 weeks because I wasn't crazy about the taste and mainly the thickness and texture that was hard to drink.

I'm glad I found this beef gelatin as I do not use pork products. The price is reasonable also. I take it daily for help with joints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by owls It works!
I began using this product to strengthen my fingernails. My nails were so bendable... I read some reviews and it basically told me that I had to wait 3 months before I saw any effects. I waited 3 months and saw nothing, so I gave up. I tried again after 2 months, and within a week, I saw s significant change in my nail strength. And it has persisted! The product's working!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elibrarian Good way to get in some protein
This is an excellent product if you are needing to get in some extra protein without a lot of added fat. I use this in smoothies, soups, oatmeal, etc. Be careful not to let it sit in cold liquid (ie smoothie) for very long or it will clump.

I have been using this gelatin to prepare dishes that help me lose weight. I am happy to report that I have enjoyed eating this gelatin in both sweet and savory dishes, and I have lost three pounds in two weeks. It has also improved the quality of my sleep.
I recommend this product very highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Portchop Will buy again
Mixes great in warm or hot water. Turns into a great jelly and is easy to flavor. Shipping price was more than I'd like but I live in Canada. Will buy again.

I was delighted when I found beef gelatin in a one pound bag! It is so convenient. It adds protein to our meal. I dissolve 1 Tablespoon of gelatin in a little cold water and then add It to hot broth or tea. It's a great drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuckyLulu Like Grandma used to make it!
Love this stuff! Second time I've bought it and each time Swanson's delivers on time and perfectly. Excellent price for a great product. (Cheaper than anywhere else.) Helps me get to sleep and manage my cravings for sweeties! I make gummies with this powder and each time I end up with a flawless end product. Will definitely continue to buy from here, especially as I buy in bulk, thereby avoiding shipping charges and then, happily, I never run out! Great nutrition and a powerful protein kick that can be added to anything from tea to smoothies, to soups, to cakes! My nails and hair are very happy with this product too :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by lifehealth best out of three products
Swanson products are quite afforable, comparatively speaking, to others on the web. I am hooked on this site from now on after having shopped elsewhere. This product is the best that i have tried. It does not congeal in cold drinks when mixed & it tastes great. Thanks for this site & ease of ordering. you can't go wrong!

Good gelatin powder source. It would be perfect if it were organic and from grass fed beef! We use a lot of gelatin at our house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KGHM Must have for your kitchen!
I add Now Gelatin to any powdered protein drink or smoothie for an extra protein boost which also strengthens my nails and hair. In baking, if I have a very juicy pie, I sprinkle it over the fruit for thickening - no cooking or stirring necessary! I keep Now Gelatin as a staple in my kitchen.

I love this gelatin, and especially the fact that it is beef-derived. I can make great jello salads with fruit juice that my family loves, and I know there is nothing harmful in them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stac3y Healthy Looking Hair
I starting adding a tsp of this to my coffee in the morning. After about 2 months, I've noticed that my hair does appear healthier and is growing longer. I am not saying dramatic results, but I have really thin, sparse, stringy hair, and have found that it looks a bit more "normal." I use Swanson's MSM, one scoop every morning as well, so I suspect both supplements were lacking in my diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Critterlover Nice product
I purchased this after reading about the benefits of taking gelatin. I take it at bedtime and it does seem to help me sleep better. I'm going to continue taking it because it is supposed to help with so many other things as well... hair, skin tone, nails etc. Can't wait to see!
