    Answer: See explanation

    Explanation:

    From the information given, it should be noted that Gelatin has a nutritional distribution of amino acids that’s unbalanced.

    It should be noted that in a scenario whereby large amounts of gelatin are ingested into the body such that there is catabolizing of the excess amino acids, there will be an excess of the urwa cycle capacity which then brings about ammonia toxicity.

    Furthermore, the dehydration which can be caused due to the excretion of large amount of urea can also lead to death.
