Pastels are not just sugar and flavoring
Pastels are delicious and very popular. They also contain slaughterhouse residues. They contain gelatin that comes from animal collagen. In the Middle Ages, it was discovered that the boiling of the bones and skin of animals in it creates a thick fluid that becomes hardened after cooling. At that time, the preparation of gelatin was a long process, involving the boiling of different parts of animals for six hours, and only the wealthy families came back from doing so. Today, gelatin is produced worldwide, so you do not need to be rich to enjoy this food.
