Ever wonder how gummy candies are made? Well, it turns out, you probably won’t eat them ever again after you find out! Gummies are made from a mixture of boiled chemicals, sugar, and chopped up animal remains! Yuck!
Belgian freelance journalist and director Alina Kneepkens documents the production of gummy candy in a video called “Over Eten” (On Food) Gelatine.
The main ingredient in gummy candy is gelatin.
Gelatin is, according to Wikipedia, a colorless, translucent, flavorless food derived from collagen. The collagen comes from the skin, connective tissue, and bones of animals like pigs, cattle, fish, and chicken.
