Why is jello so jiggley?

Topics: Food & DrinkDessertsJell-O, Kraft

Answer

Jello is made with gelatin, a processed version of collagen. It's made by grinding up the bones & tissues of cows & pigs, which weakens collagen protein bonds. Pouring gelatin powder in boiling water breaks the weak bonds. As the concoction slowly cools in the fridge, some bonds don't reconnect. These gaps are filled with water & give the dessert its wiggle.
