GELLIFIED PIÑA COLADA

Sanz Cocktails ·

Jellification is a technique in molecular cuisine that is also used in molecular cocktail making.

It is a process to thicken and stabilize liquids, to achieve a gelatinous texture.

 

♦️WHERE DOES GELATIN COME FROM?

  • “Fish tail” gelatin (grouper, anglerfish, sturgeon).
  • 80% of European gelatin comes from pork skin, 15% comes from bovine skin, and 5% comes from bones (pig, poultry, fish).
  • Gelatine of plant origin: Agar agar (red algae), Alginate (laminaria algae).

 

♦️PROPERTIES OF GELATIN:

  • It does not add an aroma or flavour to the recipe.

 

♦️KEY STEPS IN THIS TECHNIQUE:

  • Dissolving: Mix the gelling agent with the liquid that is to be jellified.
  • Heating: Activate the jellification process by heating the mix.
  • Cooling: Obtain the desired texture by cooling the mixture.

 

♦️TYPES OF GELLING AGENTS:

  • Gellan gum
  • Kappa
  • Iota
  • Methylcellulose
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Lecithin

 

♦️A CLOSER LOOK AT GELATIN:

  • Widely used in foams for cooking.
  • It enables the jellification of cocktails (e.g. Jelly Shots).

 

♦️PRACTICAL TIP:

  • Hydrate gelatin in cold water, then heat with a part of the cocktail in order to avoid the taste of being overcooked.
