How To Make Sugar-Free Gummy Bears

Gummy bears are one of the most popular snacks in circulation. Originating in Germany in the 1920s, gummy bears eventually made their way to North America and became a staple of snack culture across the continent. Beloved by both children and adults, people love to snack away on sweet candies, and some young adults may even create delicious alcoholic shots using gummy bears.

But as much of the world became more health-conscious, people realized that overloading on sweet snacks with high concentrations of sugar was bad for their overall quality of life. It inspired a new approach to sweets and snacks, which led to the foundation of companies like Better Bears in 2019. This led to the creation of guilt-free naturally sweetened gummies that are beloved by people all across Canada. Better Bears offer Gummy Bears with a difference. The taste is absolutely amazing, and the low amount of sugar in it makes it the perfect guilt-free healthy snack.

What is in sugar-free gummy bears?

Sugar-free gummy bears rely on natural ingredients to make sweet and delicious flavors for people to enjoy. Unlike many gummy bears found in supermarkets, sugar-free gummy bears are free of artificial sweeteners that increase the sugar concentrations within the gummies.

Sugar-free gummy bears provided by Better Bears are also gluten-free, making them an appetizing snack for vegan consumers. All Better Bears gummies contain only 1 gram of sugar, providing just enough sweetness to replicate the delicious taste of traditional gummies but in a much healthier way.

Are sugar-free gummy bears good for you?

Sugar-free gummy bears are good for your health. Since they contain only natural sweeteners and flavors, sugar-free gummy bears are an excellent source of collagen. The body naturally produces its own collagen, which helps protect bones and joints from rubbing against each other and compromising your body’s structural integrity.

Over time, or due to excessive workouts, collagen levels within the body can become depleted, risking the health and safety of your joints. Sugar-free gummy bears can help substitute for diminishing natural supplies of collagen to reinforce the padded layers between different bones. This ensures your body remains healthy and functional.

How many carbs are in sugar-free gummy bears

A full bag of traditional gummy bears contains upwards of 130 carbohydrates. Suppose you were to eat two to three bags of those gummies; now do the math. That adds up to potentially 390 carbs in just a few bags of artificially manufactured gummy bears. The added sugar to your daily diet could prove detrimental to your overall health.

On the other hand, since sugar-free gummies contain only natural ingredients, they’re made with compounds that produce far fewer carbs. As a result, a bag of sugar-free gummies contains only a fraction of the amount of carbs found in traditional packages. This makes a huge difference to your potential daily intake of sugar and as a result your overall health.

Sugar-free gummy bears nutrition

Healthy snacking can actually be very beneficial to your health and well-being. Studies show that people who eat small healthy snacks throughout the day are less likely to overeat during dinner, which is typically a carb-heavy meal. Snacking controls your need for food during dinner time, allowing you to eat a healthy amount of dinner without compromising your health. It has been shown that snacking throughout the day might actually be linked to an improvement in one's general mood and outlook throughout the day.

Similarly, sugar-free gummy bears are actually very nutritious for children. They’re lower in high-fructose corn syrup and other refined sugars than other gelatin-based gummy snacks. They’re vegan, they do not contain gelatin, and are made out of plant-based ingredients. And with only 1 gram of sugar per gummy and 50 calories per bag, they’re the perfect snack to help growing bodies receive their required needs.
