Gelatin - Bloom Strength and Conversion of Powder to Sheet Information

As Knox Gelatin is the most widely available in the United States and as some recipes call for gelatin sheets and some even for certain bloom strenghts, I wrote Kraft about their Knox product. Below are email responses from them.

Below, a mistake. The entire box of Knox is the same as 5 sheets of gelatin. I quote: "1 envelope of Knox Gelatine has the same gelling strength as 5 sheets of gelatin ( 2 7/8" X 8 1/2") - I'm pretty certain that 1 envelope equals 1 sheet. This is based on a bloom strength of 225 for both the powder and the sheet.
