Functional Gummies

Delicious meets nutritious. Bridging the gap between the confectionery and wellness categories, functional gummies have exploded in popularity around the world. This easily consumable, fortified snack turns taking supplements into a fun experience. Developed with vitamins, minerals, probiotics and other active ingredients, functional gummies encourage repeat consumption and are appreciated by all generations. Young children love the taste. Older adults who may have trouble swallowing also prefer the delivery format over cumbersome capsules and pills.

In this fast-growing area, label-conscious consumers are prompting a number of trends, including sugar-free, vegan alternatives to gelatin and heat-stability to take advantage of e-commerce convenience. CP Kelco offers a portfolio of nature-based ingredients and technical expertise to ensure you have the best solution.
