This is a fascinating piece. A tiny correction: collagen is not 'denatured' to gelatin. Denaturation is what happens at the shrinkage temperature, as the collagen transitions abruptly from elongated fibres to a random coil structure, which is thus shorter. Further heating results in breaks in the backbone of the protein; gelatin consists of these fragments of collagen.
