Can Babies Eat Jelly?

Jello or jelly are gelatin desserts made with sweetened and flavored gelatin. They can be made by mixing simple gelatin with other ingredients, or by using a blend of gelatin with additives mixed in advance. The most typical gelatin desserts were the “calf’s foot jelly”, as a result of the extraction and purification of gelatin from the foot of a calf, but the protein produced from collagen can be extracted from other boiled bones as well, or from connective tissues. Jellies were colored yellow with saffron, green with spinach so that they could be set in layers in small, narrow glasses. Jello was flavored with sugar, mixed spices and different types of juices.

In order to prepare gelatin desserts, gelatin must be dissolved in a hot liquid, mixed with the wanted flavors, food colors, and other additives like fumaric acid, sodium citrate.  There are two forms of blends that are available on the market: powder or concentrated gelatinous block. They both dissolve in hot water.
