Probably best known as a gelling agent in cooking , different types and grades of gelatin are used in a wide range of food and nonfood products: common examples of foods that contain gelatin are gelatin desserts , trifles , aspic , marshmallows , candy corn , and confections such as Peeps , gummy bears , fruit snacks , and jelly babies . Gelatin may be used as a stabilizer , thickener, or texturizer in foods such as yogurt , cream cheese , and margarine ; it is used, as well, in fat-reduced foods to simulate the mouthfeel of fat and to create volume. It also is used in the production of several types of Chinese soup dumplings, specifically Shanghainese soup dumplings, or xiaolongbao , as well as Shengjian mantou , a type of fried and steamed dumpling. The fillings of both are made by combining ground pork with gelatin cubes, and in the process of cooking, the gelatin melts, creating a soupy interior with a characteristic gelatinous stickiness.
In the Austrian, particularly Viennese cuisine , the Beuschel is a traditional offal dish. It is a sort of ragout containing veal lungs and heart. It is usually served in a sour cream sauce and with bread dumplings (Semmel knödel ). A type of black pudding by the name of Blunzn or Blutwurst ist also common. In traditional Viennese cuisine , many types of offal including calf's liver ( Kalbsleber ), sweetbread ( Kalbsbries ) or calf's brain with egg ( Hirn mit Ei ) have played an important role, but their popularity has strongly dwindled in recent times.
