Helpful hints

  • Some gelatins contain phosphate additives and may not be recommended, especially if phosphorus control is an issue. Check labels and ingredients. Unflavored gelatin and fruit juice makes a good substitute.
  • Check the ingredients on whey protein and look for brands that do not contain phosphate additives. Protein content will vary between brands.
  • For more calories substitute regular instead of sugar-free gelatin.
