Gelatine Paws

Gelatine Paws

In this blog I’m going to show you how to make pure gelatine paw treats.

Why is gelatine beneficial? Well gelatine is a brilliant addition to any carnivore’s diet. The main ingredient in gelatine is collagen which is a protein found in animal tissues, ligaments, tendons, bones and skin. Glycine is the main amino acid in gelatine. It’s said to protect against seizures and brain damage.

Regularly adding gelatine has many benefits including:

• Skin and coat health
• Heart function
• Gut health and digestion
• A great source of amino acids
• It stimulates collagen production which maintains joint health

Gelatine’s ability to improve fat metabolism makes it an ideal treat to give a few times a week. And best of all, pure gelatine treats are super quick and easy to make!

Please make sure you’re using *pure* gelatine with no flavours, sodium or colours added. Pure gelatine is a fantastic alternative to the broth.

In this recipe, we’re using Great Lakes Pure Unflavoured Gelatine.
