Knox gelatin is a "porcine" product. However, in the US other types are available, such as "ossein" which is the type used in most photographic emulsions, and fish glue.

I daresay you're right Sandy... I've seen "kosher for passover" on packages of Knox, and just assumed it was normal Knox. Also, it was long ago, since I bought a humongous supply for paper sizing & haven't paid attention to it since. Now I'm supposing it was something else, kelp, or ossein, or whatever, "kosher for passover."

True, I don't know of any passover dishes that require gelatin... but then passover cooking isn't my specialty. (My specialty this week is bluefish... husband having brought home 20 monsters... Or did I mention that...?
