Jello is essentially gelatin, which is processed collagen, which is a structural protein in animals

collagen is extracted from boiled bones and intestines of animals

the trapped liquid give gelatin its wiggle, but the protein allows for it to keep its shape

water is the biggest component in Jello

gelatin is made up of amino acids in a chain

Jello has little nutritional value

collagen makes up some of the protein in the human body

collagen is composed of three polypeptide chains that are held together by hydrogen bonds


  1. for your lab, focus on the statement, "collagen makes up some of the protein in the human body"

  2. also you must post "attributes" where did you get the info?
