Gelatin is made from the marrow and collagen of pork bones and skin primarily. That is why people who are Kosher and Vegan as well as Muslim avoid items containing Gelatin. I am Vegan. I do not miss it.

Yep I did.  Learned that in my freshman year of high school.  Very appetizing.  Here's the link to prove the fact too.

Ewe!  I knew that it was made of collagen.  It is like when you make soup out of bones and it coagulates.  Anyway.  The colors and flavors and everything else...it is not really food....
