Pineapple Soup with Herb Gelatins

Gelatin based products are great stool softeners for patients with cancer. Patients with cancer are more prone to the development of constipation due to use of pain medication and relative immobility. This gelatin recipe incorporates agar agar (base of most stool softeners). The coolness and flavor stimulate the mouth and that in turn helps the digestive system.
