Fi­nally– De­li­cious, Nu­tri­tious Gum­mies!

Better Nutrition - - NEWS -

I have been over the moon about th­ese vi­ta­mins. And I am thrilled now that we have added gum­mies to our line! Chew­ing some­thing de­li­cious is more fun— how could it not be? Th­ese gum­mies taste like fruit snacks— nine whole fruits in every bo le— and they're packed with ex­tra nu­tri­tional good­ness and zero added sugar! Most gummy vi­ta­mins have the equiv­a­lent of one tea­spoon full of sugar in each serv­ing. How crazy is that? From the get- go, we wanted to make th­ese for chil­dren and any­one else who prefers chew­ing to swal­low­ing a cap­sule. But in or­der to make it, it took a lot of re­search since no other gummy on the mar­ket is made the way th­ese are: with Cer­ti­fied Or­ganic, Non- GMO whole fruits and veg­eta­bles, and we don't add sugar or gelatin. In search­ing for a clean, ve­gan, and fun kids mul­ti­vi­ta­min to give my son, Bear, I came across gummy vi­ta­min brands that were made with some or­ganic stuff, but most snuck in pro­cessed sugar or ar­ti­fi­cial fla­vor­ings! Se­ri­ously, take a look; the top four kid- friendly gummy brands on the mar­ket all have sugar as a top in­gre­di­ent. I cringe at the thought of feed­ing Bear a vi­ta­min that is the equiv­a­lent of one tea­spoon of ta­ble sugar. It was so im­por­tant to me that we cre­ate some­thing with zero pro­cessed sugar! So, un­like the other gummy prod­ucts out there, mykind Or­gan­ics Gum­mies uses or­ganic ap­ple and or­ganic peach purée and juice to source the sweet­ness. On top of pro­cessed sug­ars, many top vi­ta­min brands in­clude the in­gre­di­ent gelatin in their gum­mies. What’s the deal with gelatin? Gelatin is a taste­less gelling agent that's made from ground up an­i­mal skin and bones— pri­mar­ily the stuff that’s left over from the meat in­dus­try. Items like pork skins, horns, and ca le bones. Nasty! Con­sum­ing gelatin is like buy­ing a hot dog on a ran­dom city street cor­ner— you re­ally have no idea what’s ac­tu­ally in it. For this rea­son, we sourced the first ever or­ganic pectin from or­ganic or­anges. It’s com­bined with ap­ple pectin to help bind the gummy. The or­anges used are ac­tu­ally re­claimed or­ange peels that might oth­er­wise be com­posted. We worked with the com­pany Un­cle Ma ’ s ® Or­ganic to cre­ate an or­ange pow­der made from the rem­nants of their or­ange peels. This way, bind­ing the gummy is not only health­ier for you or your li le one, but it’s also health­ier for the planet.
