How is Gelatin Made?

Gelatin is made out of the collagen bearing tissues of any animal that has been slaughtered for food purposes. The materials are soaks in acids and washed to remove non-collagen constituents (meat). While soaking, the collagen turns into gelatin and cooked gently to extract the gelatin. The gelatin also goes through a filtration process to rid any unwanted materials.
