Leaf gelatin generally results in a smoother, clearer consistency compared to powdered gelatin — it’s perfect in dishes where appearance really counts. Leaf gelatin is fat and carbohydrate free. As pure protein, it is also allergen free and easy to digest. It’s great for quick and delicious dishes and desserts, such as savory aspics, cake fillings, panna cotta or jellies. One sheet of gold gelatin is equivalent to 2.2 grams of powdered gelatin. Soak sheets in water for a minute to hydrate them evenly before dissolving in warm liquid to avoid lumps.
