Jelly, also called gelatin dessert, is a dessert made with a sweetened and flavored processed collagen product (gelatin). This type of dessert was first recorded as jelly by Hannah Glass in her book, The Art of Cooking in the 18th Century. Jelly is also featured in best-selling cookbooks by English food writers Eliza Acton and Isabella Beton in the 19th century.
The jellies can be made by combining plain gelatin with other ingredients or by using a pre-mixed mixture of gelatin with additives.
Fully prepared gelatin desserts are sold in a variety of forms, ranging from large decorative forms to individual serving cups.
Berry Jelly Mix "Zdravnitza"
Berry Jelly Mix is an original and innovative recipe containing gelatin, soluble GoFos fiber, and lyophilized fruits. The product does not contain added sugar, but is sweetened with xylitol and stevia. The amount of 1 package of fruit jelly mix is enough to gel not less than 500 ml liquid.
Gelatine is a simple protein obtainable by the hydrolysis of collagen from animal bones or cartilage, boiled in water. It is easily soluble in water, resulting solutions tend to compress into jelly. The dissolution rate is proportional to water temperature. Optimal temperature for dissolving the gelatin is from 42 to 60° C.
Although the gelatin in a dry weight is a 98-99% protein, it has a lower nutritional value than many other protein sources. Gelatine has a particularly high content of essential amino acids glycine and proline (ie those the human body can itself produce), while it lacks the essential amino acids (ie those the human body can not itself produce). It does not contain tryptophan, has a lower the content of isoleucine, threonine and methionine.
GoFos probiotic fibers
GoFos is a sweet, tasty and soluble probiotic fiber that consists of about 95% short-chain fructooligosaccharides (sc-FOS). GoFos fiber is produced from sugar beet through a unique enzymatic process.
GoFos fibers provide a synergistic and sweet taste of berry jelly mix of "Zdravnitza". Fiber is an entirely dietary product, maintaining blood sugar levels and insulin response.
GoFos probiotic and soluble fiber have a number of health benefits, including:
- promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut;
- control body weight;
- help maintain normal blood sugar levels;
- support the work of the immune system;
- increase the absorption of calcium and magnesium.
Lyophilization or freeze-drying is a process of dehydration. Lyophilization works on the principle of freezing the product and then reducing the pressure in the environment so that the frozen water contained in the product sublimes directly from solid to gaseous state.
By lyophilization all useful properties of fruits are preserved, incl. microorganisms, proteins and vitamins. This method also preserves the color of the fruits.
Strawberry is a valuable source of ascorbic acid - 120 mg per 100 g of fruit. Strawberries are an essential part of the diet of patients with anemia and fragile blood vessels. Strawberries are suitable for improving blood function. strawberry contains one of the most powerful antioxidants - Fizetin.

Birch sugar (xylitol) is a sugar substitute, extracted from the bark of trees in Europe, mainly from birch and beech from sustainable forests. It is used as a classic crystal sugar - hot or cold. As a low glycemic substance, it is suitable for diabetics and people whose body is sensitive to sugar metabolism. Its glycemic index is equal to 8.5. Its effect on raising blood sugar is weak.
Stevia normalizes blood sugar levels. It is the "source of life" for diabetics. It has a positive effect on fat metabolism, strengthens the cardiovascular system, lowers blood cholesterol levels, helps eliminate toxins and toxins from the body. Stevia is good for teeth and gums by protecting them from caries and periodontitis. It has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic action. In addition to its listed properties, stevia is a powerful antioxidant and reduces free radicals.
