Appreciate if anyone can tell me where to get gelatin derived from animal sources. I'm using it as a dietary suppliment in the form of jelly. I posted this question in this thread as I believe I've better changes of being answered.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for you reply Coleslaw, Tinkerfy. I think most of the gelatin found in shops are of vegetable source like agar-agar. I'm looking for the animal sources which contain collagen as explained in Wikipedia - "Gelatin is a protein produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from connective tissues of animals such as the domesticated bovines, porcines and equines".

Tinkerfy, I asked a couple of pharmacies and one says they've the empty gelatin capsules which is not what I want. I'll try asking the bakers shop as Coleslaw suggested later.

I can't speak/understand cantonese/mandarin, so don't frequent them. Thanks for your help.
