Default Plant based gelatine

Was thinking about adding Knox gelatin to my beer to clear it up then my wife told me what it is made of. The thought of putting sinew and hoof in my beer had me wondering about plant based gelatines and if any body has ever used it and to what effect?

What's wrong with sinew and hoof? Gelatin is incredibly nutritious. And it almost all drops out.

Sparkoloid is animal free and does about 5the same thing. I have never used it in beer only wines. Also Irish moss @ 15 minutes in the boil will help clear the beer and that is a kelp.
