Thick or thin gelatin?

shockinblue | Apr 30, 2011 08:58 AM


I was just wondering if anyone out there knew the differences between thick and thin gelatin? I really love to bake and I have a small stash of gelatin sheets bought from Domino's at St. Lawrence Market. I'm heading to Hong Kong in a couple of weeks and I found a store over there that will sell Gelita's gelatin by the box (1 kg) but they come in 200pc (thick) or 400pc (thin). I'm not sure which one I should go for in terms of using it to make mousses and stuff.

I wish I knew the difference but the shop's online store only has thumbnails, which shows Gelita's silver-grade gelatin.

If anyone out there's willing to share their knowledge on gelatin thickness with me, that'd be highly appreciated. Thank you!
