Need help making homemade "nutritional" Jello

bonefish1 | Jul 29, 2011 06:07 AM

My wife is in the late stages of Alzheimer's and has trouble eating but can eat jell-o with no problem. I am trying to make jello using nutritional powder (Chike). I plan on mixing the powder with water and using it in place of fruit juice. Here is my delimma: There are two types of jelling products: Gelatin and Agar Agar . Gelatin needs to be cooled in order to gel and will melt at room temperature. If you use Agar Agar it will gel at room temperature and stay jelled at room temperature. My question is can I mix Gelatin and Agar Agar and get the best of both worlds? I would welcome any suggestions you could make.
