Water can be found in each of the millions of cells within the human body; therefore, water makes up approximately 3/4 or 75% of our bodies. When water reacts with proteins found in our bodies, these proteins become stretchy or even gummy. The gelatin, in this case, represents the proteins found in our body & when it reacts with water it becomes gummy...and yummy!
