Gelatine soup

Geee... 2 months of 2006 has past. How fast!

Have I told you before anything that promote with the word "anti-aging" and "beautifying" is seductive thing for ladies in Japan?

One of this type of product that get the boom last year was this... GELATINE.

Gelatine is a type of protein that mainly abstract from animal skin and bone, particularly from bovine. It is said to anti-aging and has the beautifying effect. There was even a study in TV that proved a one-week gelatine consumption managed to increase the skin moisture level in ladies significantly.

In Japan, gelatine is widely used to make dessert such as jelly, bavarois etc.

But then, some business minded folks decided to make gelatine to be eaten in a more direct way.

The created gelatine cubes. So, how to eat this gelatine cube?

How about a small cup of gelatine in chicken soup (about 100cc) for 80 yen.

It was actually gelatine cube that melted in chicken soup.

So, you want gelatine?

Come, have this one.

You will have more than enough gelatine for a day.

The taste? Errr.... plain.

But well, we do know healthy food is always not as yummy.

Gosh... whether it is true or not, I rather believe my skin is getting younger that day. Blow-can-break skin. ;)

Tee hee hee...

foodcrazee : Ah~ do you mean something like a jelly coffee?

cynthia : Nope nope dear. Some use a lot of cosmetic. They are really good in make up themselves. You'll know what I mean when you see them close. ;) But it is true the original Japanese cuisine is good for health. Not the modern Japanese eating style though. Too much deep fried things.
