Granulated Gelatin Question

Hi all, I am making a chocolate mousse and have a recipe calling for gelatin leaves, but can only fine granulated gelatin in the store. If I need two sheets for the recipe, can anyone tell me how to convert this to the granulated type? Thanks so much!

A quick google search got me this:

4 sheets leaf gelatin = 1 (.25 oz) envelope granulated gelatin = 1 tablespoon granulated gelatin

Hope that helps!

Gelatin leaves ( about 3x8 inches in size), as thin as a sheet of paper, are a restaurant item. Yes the conversion to 4 sheets of leaf gelatin to one TBS of granulated gelatin sounds right. The advantage of using gelating leaves is that they are easier to melt and have no flavor at all. Sometimes granulated gelatin, if not soaked properly may leave a grany sensation and a light smell.
