Whence Cometh Thy Gelatin?

How do people know if gelatin is made from pig skin or cow skin?

People do not know, and the gelatin manufacturers aren't telling. Since most gelatin comes from pigs, though, people assume that their gelatin is from pigs.

If you object to the consumption of pigs, you can purchase any gelatin labeled kosher, in which case you know it is not pig gelatin.
