Experts Answer: Is Gelatin Vegan? –

Is Gelatin Vegan?

I was thinking about making my own vegan dessert for a dinner party. I saw some of the recipes that I found on the internet where they used gelatin to make their mousse cakes. Is gelatin vegan?


  1. 0

    Gelatin is not vegan because it is made from animal products such as skin, bones,and tendons. However, there are some vegan alternatives such as Agar(made from seaweed), Irish Moss, and vegan gel made from vegetable gum.

  2. 0

    Gelatin is made of animal parts such as hooves of horses, so it is not considered vegan.

  3. 0

    Gelatin is absolutely not vegan. Gelatin is made from animal collagen, which is disgusting and I would rather never eat it again. Gelatin does give jellies their wobbly consistency. There is still a way to get your taste buds satisfied with other substances that can replace gelatin such as Agar[as mentioned above}, carrageen, or irish moss, and vegan gel.

    No, unfortunately it is not vegan, although as it is delicious so I wish it was. It is made from the hydrolysis present in the tendons of pigs, as well as bones and organs. Even from chickens and fish.

    If you want to use some kind of vegan gelatin, the closest thing is “agar agar” which is obtained from seaweed.

    Hope to have helped you!

    Gelatin is a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. Gelatin is used in shampoos, face masks, and other cosmetics; as a thickener for fruit gelatins and puddings (such as Jell-O); in candies, marshmallows, cakes, ice cream, and yogurts; on photographic film; and in vitamins as a coating and as capsules, and it is sometimes used to assist in “clearing” wines. Gelatin is not vegan. However, there is a product called “agar agar” that is sometimes marketed as “gelatin,” but it is vegan. It is derived from a type of seaweed.

    Gelatin is not vegan because it’s a a protein that comes from the boiling of animals (like chicken, cows and pigs) skins, tendons, ligaments and bones. But there are derivatives that look like gelatin witch are made of vegan material.

  8. 0

    No! Gelatin is absolutely not a vegan product. Gelatin is made from ground up bones, skin, ligaments, and tendons, and therefore, not vegan. If you are looking for an alternative, agar-agar is a product that does the same thing but is made from seaweed.
