Gummies are here new era of food supplements.

Boasting numerous advantages* (described below) compared to “classic” food supplements (capsules, tablets, pills, etc.), they are starting to make their way into our stores and pharmacies and not without reason.

  • But what are these gummies really?
  • Where does this term come from?
  • What are they made of and what are their main advantages?

Let's see all this through this article.

What is a food supplement?

    A food supplement is a product designed to provide nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect, consumed in insufficient quantities in a person's daily diet.
    These products may contain a variety of ingredients like vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids and enzymes.
    They are usually available in various forms such as:
    • Tablets
    • Capsules
    • Capsules
    • Liquids and powders

    Used for many reasons, including to ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients by improving physical and mental health, and sometimes to help cure certain health conditions.

    W hat are gummies (or chewing gum)?

    Gummies refer to infused gelatinous candies enriched with vitamins, minerals or other health-promoting substances such as plant extracts .
    They are designed as a tasty, stress-free and easy-to-consume alternative to capsules, tablets or pills.


    Why “gummies”?

    The term "gummies" comes from the English "gummy" , which refers to an elastic and sticky texture.
    This term is often used to describe gelatin-based candies that have a soft, chewable texture, similar to gummy bears that are popular in many countries.

    The adoption of the term “gummies” to designate food supplements in the form of candies is inspired by this texture. These supplements are made to resemble traditional gummies making them more appealing and easier to consume for those who don't like swallowing pills or capsules.

    How is their soft and sweet texture obtained?

    The use of gelatin which is a key ingredient in traditional gummies has also been taken up in the manufacturing of gummies.

    Versions exist with:

      • fruit pectin (used at HEGLIKA) ,
      • there animal gelatin
      • vegan versions in which the gelatin is replaced by plant-based gelling agents like agar-agar.

    The main advantages of gummies:

      1. Easy to transport and consume : you do n't need water to consume them . No more complicated capsules or powders to take.
      2. Really good: Unlike some pills or liquids with bad smells, gummies aim to have a delicious sweet and pleasant taste in the mouth, it's hard not to eat more sometimes.
      3. Practical for children (from 12 years old, pay attention to the dosage - see product usage advice): Often reluctant to take medications or supplements, gummies are a good reason to take care of their health, impossible to resist it .
      4. A revolution for cures: 80% of cures started are never completed. Enjoying consuming them will push you to finish your cures , unlike capsules and thus have a direct impact on your Health.

      Regulations on the marketing of gummies

        Regardless of their appearance or flavor, all food supplements produced in France are governed by rigorous regulatory standards.
        They must be declared to the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Repression (DGCCRF) .
        This organization verifies their composition and carries out quality controls before they are placed on the market.
        It is therefore recommended to be wary of supplements in the form of gums coming from abroad.
        Indeed, regulations in the countries of origin may differ and these products could contain ingredients prohibited in France or present concentrations that do not comply with local standards.
