I have been eating a couple packets of plain old Knox gelatin for a few months now, also previously used some collegan powder, still do the collagen occasionally, plus when we have boiled chicken (with the bones IN) it seems to cook down to a lovely gelintinous broth, which solids up in the refrigerator. It is only cooked for I guess a couple hours or so, maybe that is enough to at least produce gelatin. This all to battle my leaky gut, which is actually much improved
I read here https://organixx.com/how-to-make-bone-broth/
about adding a little bit of something acidic (which I see others are doing) and then cooking slowly. Apparently there are more benefits to the broth than only the gelatin.
According to this site: https://organixx.com/bone-broth-vs-stock/
Chicken broth vs. Bone Broth
"Because the bones boil for so long, the collagen inside the bones is released into the bone broth and turns to gelatin when bone broth is cooled. Want to know if your bone broth is going to pack a real nutritious punch? Let it cool. If it looks like “meat Jell-O” below the layer of fat on top, it’s a winner."
I guess ours is a 'winner' even though it's not cooked for hours and hours! LOL
So I added a little lemon juice to my little batch of soup made from a chicken thigh with the leg attatched and am going to cook it in the microwave and then chill it and see if it produces gelatin. I'm trying 4 minutes at 30 percent power after previously cooking it at full power. I actually already DRANK about half of it so maybe I should try another experiment JUST with the bones! LOL
