    What is the ratio?

    How many tbsp of gelatin to 1 quart of milk?

    You don't need to add gelatin to milk, if your looking for extra protein a tablespoon or 2 with each meal would be good.

    Oh, I thought we should add gelatin to anything with tryptophan.

    Wow, good catch P2P! Didn't even think about the tryptophan in milk.

    Assuming tryptophan gets converted to niacin. This requires calcium, but other nutrients too... I wonder if this conversion works when one is hypothyroid or after large amounts of dairy.

    The calcium, sugar and nutrients in milk should counteract any negatives from the trytophan.
