Are gummy bears made from pig skin
The main ingredients of gummy bears are sugar, corn syrup, citric acid, food flavoring and coloring, and gelatin. Although many people think that gummy bears are vegetarian, the addition of gelatin means that gummy bears are made with pig skin.
Is there pig skin in gelatin?
Gelatin is an essential ingredient in gummy bears. Only with the addition of gelatin can gummy bears develop a resilient texture, but gelatin is an animal ingredient that is extracted from the bones and hides of pigs or cows. So the gummy bears we eat every day are arguably made from pig skin.
However, there are many rumors that gummy bears are made from horse hooves. It is worth knowing that gelatin cannot be extracted from horse hooves, and gelatin only exists in the bones and hides of animals, so gummy bears are not made from horse hooves.
Because gummy bears have a unique and attractive taste, many vegetarians would like to eat gummy bears, but they do not know where to buy them.
Are there gummy bears without pigskin?
Many manufacturers have made gummy bears without gelatin to make them available to vegetarians. They will use agar or pectin instead of gelatin, which works the same way but is vegetarian.
Agar is a seaweed extract and is not a burden for vegans. But this kind of gummy bear is not very easy to buy. They usually only exist on halal food shopping websites, and you can buy them from them.
If you think it’s a bit of a hassle, you can also make your own. All you need to do is buy agar and agar powder, and the method is simple: mix the juice, sugar, and agar and heat until it turns into syrup, then pour it into a mold and let it cool and solidify.
