Gelatin is very sticky and feels much like a glue when dried between the fingers. Could eating enough of this cause constipation? Could I add something to the broth to make it less likely to act like a glue?

The broth is CONCENTRATED. That means you can add in some water and STILL have a rich broth. So your 20 ounces will make more than 20 oz of broth. Just experiment to see how much water to add.
