Houston Goudiss Describes Food Value and Versatility of Gelatin; Outlines Its Many Uses in the Diet By C. HOUSTON GOUDISS WHEN we try to appraise the nutritional values of any one food in comparison with others, as a rule we have a difficult task. Most foodstuffs are composed of so many different substances that what is lacking in one will be sup plied by another, and making comparisons may therefore be misleading as well as futile. But there is one food which is outstanding, not only because it is far less complex than most others, but because it is no exaggeration to say that without it, some of us might not be alive, and- those of us who are alive would obtain far less enjoyment from our daily existence That food is gelatin! What is Gelatin? Gelatin is a protein food which j has no equal as a carrier, binder j and “extender” of i p||||p§’ other nutritive ma a means that in solu m moved from its sol- ' k vent by filtration. f §|lil * s because of PSfe, ♦ kllfpl this that it is so HHBk. useful in producing smooth, delicious ice creams and other dainties, free from ice crystals. Gelatin is an almost pure pro tein—a kind of protein known as an albuminoid. It is not a com plete protein, because it is defi- | cient in three of the amino acids | that are necessary both to support ! growth and repair body tissues In ; this it differs from meat, cheese, J fish, eggs and milk, which are knowm as complete proteins. It cannot be used as the sole source of protein in the diet, be cause those three missing amino acids are necessary for the for mation of new body tissue. But it is especially rich in lysine, one of the protein building stones that is particularly important in the diet of children. Experiments indicate that no other amino acid can take the place of lysine and that it must be furnished by the food if adequate nutrition is to be main tained. That coupled with the fact that ; it is non-irritating and easily di gestible accounts for the large Building, Maintaining Healthy Teeth By C. HOUSTON GOUDISS It is an alarming fact that al- 1 most every adult in this great land of ours is affected by some form of oral disease, and that more than 90 per cent of our school children have decayed teeth. A prominent medical authority made the statement that if dental decay became rare, instead of almost universal, more than half of all sickness would be eliminated. Remarkable and widely herald- j ed advances have been made in our knowledge of how to control | and prevent many dangerous and debilitating diseases. A decayed tooth is a poison factory, distribut ing its noxious product to every part of the body. In the body, that poison attacks and centers in the weakest spot. It may lead to neuritis, rheumatic ailments, dyspepsia, or duodenal ulcers. It ! ; may even be a contributing cause of heart disease. Only a small percentage of our population is yet aware of the far- j I reaching effects of teeth upon I health. There is a close relation- ; ship between healthy teeth and healthy bodies, and between de- j cayed teeth and sickly bodies. By learning something of the importance of caring properly for i I the teeth, some men and women j of middle age look and feel young er than their parents did at the j same age. I have endeavored in many of ; the WHAT TO EAT AND WHY | articles, w'hich have appeared in I : this newspaper over my signature, ; to point out the close relationship j : between diet and dental disease; j between frequent and thorough ; brushing of the teeth with an effi cient dentifrice so as to remove | ! all food particles, and strong, 1 beautiful teeth. I have received many letters from readers of these articles, showing that homemakers are eager for sound, authoritative ad- | | vice on the proper care of the teeth. To help these and other readers to know how to properly care for their teeth, I have pre pared a booklet on BUILDING AND MAINTAINING HEALTHY • TEETH which I am offering , FREE, because I feel so strongly that this information should be in every home, knowing as I do, that the salvation of the human race may lie in saving their teeth.

How It Is Made Contrary to old wives’ tales, gel atin is not made from hoofs and horns. In fact, there is no gelatin in hoofs or horns. It is extracted from connective tissue in the skins and from the bones of food ani mals. Every homemaker who has made soup by simmering a knuckle bone for hours, and has found the soup “jellied” after standing overnight in the refrig erator, has prepared gelatin on a ! small scale. The same principles are followed by the gelatin manu facturer, only he operates in a much larger food kitchen, and each step of the preparation is scientifically controlled so as to insure a uniform finished product. Gelatin is sold in two forms; the unflavored, granulated prod uct which requires the addition of flavoring, and when used for dessert purposes, sweetening; and ! the gelatin dessert powders which contain added sugar, color, flavor and fruit acid. So popular are these convenient gelatin desserts, that about 10,000,000 pounds of gel ! atin are used annually for this i purpose. From Infancy to Old Age Nutritionists recognize gelatin as a food possessing many unique advantages in the daily diet, and it is prescribed by physicians for a variety of special diets. New born babies, for example, are sometimes given a gelatin-sugar salt solution which provides readi ly available protein to raise the protein level of the blood. When an infant cannot readily digest milk, owing to the formation of hard curds, the doctor may rec- New All-Day-Long Dresses i.i- ' ' it;, THESE two designs are so good looking and slim-lined that you’ll enjoy wearing them for shopping and runabout as well as at home. Make whichever one you like the best not only in such sturdy cottons as percale and cal ico, but in challis, jersey or flat crepe. In warm wintry colors, with fresh white accents, they’ll ; look extremely pretty and smart. I Both are easy to make as boiled dressing. Each pattern includes a detailed sew chart. Buttoned Down the Front. This softened version of the classic shirtwaist has fullness i over the bust and a slight blouse at the waistline, w'hich makes it | easy to wear as well as to work in. The skirt has a nice flare to it. Shrugged shoulder sleeves and j white cuffs and collar add to the j crisp, smart look, and make it more becoming. You’ll find the capacious patch pockets very , handy! For Large Figures. Here's one of the most becom i ing and comfortable work dresses I you ever had on, if you’re in the 36 to 52 size range.

The darted w’aistline looks slim without being tight, and it blouses just a bit for greater ease. The : scalloped front, braid-trimmed ! edges and white collar (with long lines, becoming to full faces) trim it up just enough. This is a dia -1 gram design, so you can turn off half a dozen of it in no time! 1618 is designed for sizes 14, 16, a, ommend the addition of 1 per cent of gelatin dissolved in the milk. This usually causes it to be as similated easily and satisfactorily. When it comes time to change a baby’s food from liquids to sol ids, gelatin also proves useful, for its soft, semi-solid texture makes an excellent transitional food. With todd'ers and school chil dren, gelatin the carrier and “extender”—provides a splendid method for offering foods that are disliked. Vegetables that draw forth protests when presented in the usual fashion are eaten w’ith relish when molded into a spar kling lime- or lemon-flavored sal ad. The coarse texture of certain raw vegetables, such as carrots and cabbage, or the tart flavor of some fruits, may likewise be modified by serving them in a gelatin base. And it doesn’t require statistics from nursery schools to tell moth ers how readily children eat gela tin desserts when they are bril liant with color and flavored with orange, raspberry, cherry, straw berry or other well liked flavors. Every mother knows this from her own experience—and I rather sus pect that many mothers describe these attractive molded desserts as the prize to be won in return for cleaning the plate of the main course! In the Reducing Diet Both men and women who are counting their calories, in an ef fort to avoid overweight, or to reduce, can profit by taking gela tin salads and desserts, which sat isfy hunger without providing un wanted fuel value. In cases of digestive disturb ance, gelatin is frequently recom mended because of its bland taste, and because it leaves no residue in the lower intestinal tract. This same splendid food is also advised by doctors when a high protein diet is desired to speed grow'th, or during convalescence from an illness. Gelatin may be added to broths, milk, fruit and vegetables, and these, in turn, may be incorporated in solidified gelatin. Indeed, this many-sided food stuff has come to play such a wide and varied role in nutrition, not only by itself but by enhanc ing the value of other foods, that it must be numbered among the products that help to increase na tional health and vigor. © —WNU—C.
