Does Bone Broth need to gel for there to be collagen?

No, gelling is one sign of the presence of collagen but it is not required for collagen to be present in the product.

Many people who make their own bone broth use the sign of the bone broth gelling to indicate that they have collagen in their broth. This is useful when you don’t have access to a lab to analyze your broth. However, just because your broth might not be gelling, doesn’t mean that there is no collagen present.
