Based on my nourishing orange jelly recipe and a little inspiration from here and here (thanks Meagan).
A wonderful snack in between meals, even better when served with a spoonful or two of unprocessed cream or a glass of unprocessed milk. I made these for Olly who competes in adventure races as an alternative to the racing 'goos' that all his mates eat. I plan to make some adding in milk/ cream and sea salt to make it more balanced and replenishing.
The bovine gelatin provides an uninflammatory protein source and the orange juice a beneficial sugar......
Orange juice (fresh; not from a concentrate) contains an ideal ratio of glucose to fructose, a hefty amount of potassium, magnesium and is of course rich in vitamin C. Orange juice is pro-thyroid (the high magnesium works with the thyroid to moderate stress) and like sucrose increases glucuronic acid.......Fresh orange juice can significantly reduce the stress hormones responsible for poor glucose tolerance. In conjunction with nutrient-dense foods (shellfish, eggs, dairy, liver on occasion) sugars can help rehabilitate the metabolism and suppress degenerative stress hormones." Emma Sgourakis
