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.
  • Carbohydrate count is 0 if made with sugar-free JELL-O®.
  • 1/2 cup whey powder contains approximately 24 grams protein, but this amount may vary with different brands.
