A study on the production of jelly and gelatin from chicken feet, produced as wasted from chicken slaughterhouse is presented. The study was conducted in two parts. In the first part, jellies were produced from chicken feet and sensory quality was done to verify their acceptability. In the second step, gelatins were elaborated from chicken feet and also subjected to sensory analysis. Results showed that most experts in the panel accepted the products with more than 7 points in the hedonic scale and 80% said that they would consume these chicken products. Gelatin and jelly protein contents were four times larger than commercial products, indicating superiority in their chemistry and potential medicinal qualities.
