Global jellies and
gummies market is anticipated to grow at impressive rate through 2027. Gummy
candies are renowned for their sticky texture, translucent colors, and sweet
chewy consistency. Gelatin is typically used as a base while making gummy
candies. Gelatin is a protein that contributes to the distinctive stretchiness
of gummy candies. Gummies typically have a smoother texture than jelly candies.
Compared to their gummy counterparts, jellies frequently have a sturdy
exterior. Pectin, potato starch, corn starch, and tapioca are a few common
ingredients in jelly candies.
Awareness to Fuel the Market Growth
Most consumers around
the world are adopting vegetarianism or veganism due to growing awareness of
the harmful effects of the animal industry on both human health and the
environment. In the coming years, it's anticipated that consumption of
gelatin-based jellies and gummies will drastically decline as vegetarianism and
veganism become more and more popular lifestyle choices. For instance, JOM
which is a Sweden-based company provides vegetarian gummies in different
flavors such as sour cola, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, etc. to their
consumers. Also, Surf Sweets, which is a US-based company also provides organic
and vegetarian gummies to their customers. These gummies are allergy-friendly
and made up of organic ingredients.
