Healthy Gummy Candy

Healthy Gummy Candy

 

I like these Gummies because they are healthy and free from white refined sugar. They are a perfect snack for someone who has problems with bones and joints. They add gelatin to a diet and (good quality) gelatin is supposed to be good for both, joints and bones. Sadly most of Celiacs have troubles with their bones later on in their lives so I like to counteract already now.

Do you know what gelatin is? It is a mixture of peptides (elements of proteins) produced by partial hydrolysis (a kind of breaking reaction) of collagen extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals. I used the Great Lakes gelatin derived from grass fed cows. It is known for its very high quality. It is available in The Netherlands here.

My gummies weren’t sweet as I used no sugar nor syrups. It is possible to add 2-3 spoons of maple syrup or other sweetener for sweeter effect. One can play with this recipe as much as possible by using other fruits, coffee, juices, teas etc. My next trial will be apple mousse with cinnamon, ‘ à la’ apple pie :D

Thank you for dropping by :-)
