Jello is a healthy food, easy digestible, low in salt, fat free and energy boosting. It is made with gelatin and other ingredients.
Gelatin is made from collagen that is a protein in meat bones. That is what causes your homemade chicken soups to have a jelly like consistency when they get cold.
Pure, though not a complete protein, because it lacks some of the necessary amino acids, it is the only food from an animal source that is not a complete protein.
The addition of vegetables and fruits, rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, gives you an abundance of essential nutrition and health benefits.
Jello dishes range from the basic recipes found on the package or box to desserts, to molded dishes, whipped cream mousses, salads, cakes like Punchbowl Cake Recipe, and pies.
Because most Jellos are sweet tasting, they are generally considered a dessert. They are also served as a salad.
A salad is often served on a bed of greens such as lettuce, on a salad plate along with the main course.
A dessert is usually served in a dessert dish, topped with whipped cream or cream cheese. It is served at the end of a meal.
Some fruits like fresh pineapple, contain an enzyme that breaks down the protein in gelatin and prevents it from "jelling". Canned pineapple can be used because cooking deactivates the enzyme. See package box for list of other fruits that will not set (gel).
