I am following a muffin recipe which calls for 2 sachets of gelatin. How much is a sachet of gelatin in teaspoons or tablespoons?

    Gelatin in muffins? Unusual. You wouldn’t have the recipe for us to understand better, how the recipe is built?

    @JulianaKarasawaSouza - I believe that is the original question!

    Does the recipe (or accompanying materials) mention a brand name of gelatin? A sachet is just a "small packet" if there is a reference to a specific brand of gelatin, you might just be able to use two packets, etc.

    @JulianaKarasawaSouza I think OP would also be happy to know that. Sounds like the (bad) recipe says literally just 'sachets'. Even worse than 'tin', at least that's almost entirely standard (volume), across products even. (And where it deviates, that tends to be the norm for that product.)

    Would be nice to see the original recipe... might not help with the "sachet" problem, but I can't really wrap my mind around gelatin in a muffin recipe. Any chance of posting that?

Knox gelatin is 4 packets in a 1oz box, so 1/4oz per packet.

The Great Lakes canister of gelatin that I have says that a serving is "1 tbsp. (1/4oz, 7g)"

So I'd assume 1TB (roughly 15mL for those not in the US) per packet ... but I have no idea if this is like salt, where they don't all pack to the same density.

Your best bet is to weigh .5 oz for accuracy. I get my gelatin in bulk and tried a measuring cup and tbsp and it wasnt very consistent compared to using a scale
