GUMMI CANDIES – What are they made of ?
In case you were wondering what gummy candies are made of ???
Gummies or jelly sweets are a broad, general type of Gelatin-based Chewy Candy along with mixture of sugar, glucose syrup, starch, flavouring, food colouring, citric acid.
GELATIN is a translucent, colorless, odorless, and nearly tasteless substance that is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage and bones from animals. It’s made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over – we’re talking about pork skins and cattle bones. Yummy !!! (Source – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelatin)
