Finally– Delicious, Nutritious Gummies!
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.
