The articles reads:
"The third problematic ingredient is gelatine. This is anathema to observant Muslims, Jews and vegetarians, and even secular omnivores may be wondering what this by-product of pig skin is doing in their pudding."

A bit dramatic if you ask me.

Gelatine is a protein substance derived from collagen, a natural protein present in the tendons, ligaments, and tissues of mammals. It is produced by boiling the connective tissues, bones and skins of animals, usually cows and pigs. Okay, so Muslims and Jews don't eat the pig and its by-products. There're always the by-products of cows, sheep, goats etc. I'm not seeing the big issue here when it comes to the manufacturing of gelatin (which incidentally most of our supplement capsules are made of).

Okay, so nothing is natural anymore. I wonder what does Joanna Blythman himself eats?

In a similar fashion to this article, I saw a program about the new Boeing 787 dreamliner, where the workers who worked on it choose not to fly in it. Now that's comforting to hear wouldn't you agree!!
