About This Brand

When most people think of gelatin, they think of those tiny cups in your lunchbag or molds of a gooey-like substance that tastes vaguely of fruit. Although, gelatin is capable of so much more than being just a jiggly, artificially flavored and colored snack. Gelatin can be used to improve your skin by making it smoother and help to conceal scars while giving your hair a decadently luxurious glow. If used properly with a balanced and sensible diet, gelatin can be also be quite healthy as leading nutritional researchers have found that it’s an excellent source of protein and the calcium. Great Lakes Gelatin long ago realized the potentially immense health benefits of their products and is at the forefront of modern aspic—a dish in which ingredients are set into a gelatin made from a meat stock or consommé. How Great Lakes Gelatin got started 1988—Great Lakes Gelatin launched in Grayslake, a small working-class suburb a few miles north of Chicago. But that is only a...

I recommend this

We use this to add to our bone broths and to make terrific homemade marshmallows without corn syrup!

Great Lakes Kosher Beef Gelatin

This product should be an essential in your diet unless you are slaughtering your own grass-fed beef and making and using broth on a daily basis. This kosher gelatin powder contains the essential amino acids from grass-fed beef. We use it in our broth, soup, rice, gravy, even hot drinks. 'Broth' from grass-fed animals has too many health benefits to enumerate here (see the Weston A. Price Foundation website), and it is the only known holistic treatment for Crohn's Disease; making broth with this product for my brother, who is a sufferer, has changed his life. Highest possible recommendation.

Fantastic Product, Best Price

Thrilled to see Thrive has this wonderful and restorative beef gelatin (tasteless, odorless) on your shelves. This is EXACTLY the kind of product, I believe, Thrive Market stands for: a necessary healthful, healing product that should be available to all for a reasonable price. It dissolves perfectly in hot water, tea, bone broth and juice. I've yet to cook with mine but I mostly just use it as a daily supplement (2x a day) but from the other reviews, I look forward to experimenting soon! Thank you, Thrive for keeping your promises with this great source of protein and collagen.

Best out there so far!

Been using for several years now. Thrive has better prices than Amazon this time around! Good for you and so many uses.

Nice suplement

I tried it for the first time a few months ago (still have product) and i pour one teaspoon of it, in a cup with hot water, matcha, coconut cream and Spirulina; it taste amazing! besides, im noticing my skin's getting more 'clear/clean' (i guess because of the Lakes) and my appetite has diminish at the same time (because of the spirulina) and it make me feel full for longer periods. (Not sure why, but i really like it)

- Liliana Trujillo


I made my own gummies with tart cherry juice and they turned out great! I plan on using this in many natural dessert recipes! I could not imagine drinking it plain like some people do! I want to enjoy the benefits of the gelatin in a yummy way!

Great Lakes unflavored. Beef Gelatin

It is the same product I purchased at Amazon but with Thrive it is $5 cheaper. This product along with raw honey, Ceylon cinnamon, and great lakes collagen have helped with a great deal of pain due to degenerative arthritis. My pain now is so minimal. I have been using great lake gelatin since Dec 2015 Nd refuse to stop. Can't wait till their collagen comes back in stock.

I've been using tbsp in my morning smoothie for the past 2 weeks and WOW. I can see a huge difference in my skin

Awesome product

I love this product, good quality, dissolves in cold and hot drinks, affordable price!

Bone Broth Benefits and Lots of Possibilities

I LOVE this gelatin. It gives the same benefits as bone broth, and I've been busy finding yummy ways to use it. I mostly like it for "gummies" and dessert things, including mango puree. It's my favorite. I know it is healing my stomach.

- Alice

Great Deal for a Great Product!

I've been purchasing this on Amazon for the past 3 years or so. It's a great product that helped me recover hormone balance after having my third baby and also took away the problem of creaking joints (especially in my knees.) It's a great way to add protein to any food, be it an avocado pudding, a green smoothie, or your favorite dip or homemade soup. I throw it in just about everything. It also makes amazing desserts! Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when I found that I can purchase the same exact item on Thrive for about $5.00 less than on amazon! Yay! Thank you Thrive!

- Julie

Not gross like I assumed it would be

I've heard great things about the health benefits of gelatin, but to be honest I was nervous that it'd taste disgusting. I've been putting a tbsp of it in my morning smoothie, and if anything it adds a touch of sweetness (somehow) to it. You can't beat the amount of protein per calorie, and I don't even know it's there.

- Baily

Great product!

I put a Tbls in my smoothie every morning. It has cured my knee pain while running. My nails grow longer and stronger. And it also helps with skin and gut health. I love it and recommend it often to others!

- Joanie


Good quality; works well!

Beef Gelatin - Seems to be Working

I add it to my second mug of coffee and have been using it about a week. The skin on my legs don't look as dried out and is beginning to look normal. The worst of the flaking is reduced in the worst area. I have moved from 1 tblspn per day to 2 this week. I have not tried to make a jell desert yet, but that may be this weekend.

- John


I have been using this for 2 weeks now. The flavor is manageable. I add a little room temp water to the gelatin, and then add the hot water for my tea. I can barely taste it.

- Nicole

If only the taste and smell were better.

This gelatin has so many great uses. It makes healthy gummy bears, improves the appearance of hair, nails and acne, among other things. In addition to the benefits, it derives excellent nutritional values.

If only the taste and smell of this product were more pleasant, I would completely love this product. And the consistency is so thick to drink, even in diluted water. If mixed into hot water, it dissolves so much easier, however. But the strong odor still makes it difficult to enjoy.

No Chemicals - Great Alternative

For a long time my wife was using a vitamin she was buying from a multi-level marketing company because it work for her. Once she realized that the company was a ploy and that her family was absorbed in it, she got out. Working for a health food company myself, I suggested that she try this. MAGIC! Her nails and hair are just as healthy as they were when she was using the other product.

The downside of this product is that Thrive sells so much of it, that they can't keep it in stock. We have set a restock reminder twice and bought multiple containers each time it was available. It's just that good!

- Deborah Medina

Miracle worker

I have an old rotator cuff injury from pitching back in the day and I recently re-injured it. My sister insisted I tried this gelatin and I thought she was crazy. I was certain that I would need surgery and had already booked an appointment to meet with my doctor. I was in constant pain for probably 2 days and then started using this product and by the next day almost all of the pain was gone. I still don't believe it, if you have any joint pain, I highly recommend trying this product!

- Abraham

Acne remedy

In the past month, this gelatin has smoothed (but not cured) rough patches due to rashes on my body, and significantly suppressed my acne. Ditch the facial cleansers and just get gelatin!

- Elisha


This stuff is quality! I use it to turn my homemade coconut milk into yogurt and make marshmallows and fruit snacks for my kids. Yum! Thrive has the best price around on this product.
