After Watching How Gummy Candies Are Really Made, You’ll Never Eat Them Again (Disturbing & Graphic)
You will all probably agree with me that in childhood, all we wanted to do is to spend all our day playing with our friends and all we wanted was to own the candy shop near the house.
When we grow up, we start avoiding these sweet sins in order have a fit body, flawless skin and live a healthy life. Nevertheless, we still crave for some delicious candy and sometimes we can’t resist it.
If you are one of those people that just can’t avoid eating gymmy bears, peach rings or gummy worms, you should watch the video bellow which will help you a lot with this problem.
Alina Kneepkens, a Belgian filmmaker made this short film that will dramatically change the way you look at gummy candies. In this video you will see the process of production of these candies in intense details which will definitely help you stay away from them forever.
This video is just a part of a series of videos that are documenting the disastrous conditions under which our food is produced. There are some vidoes that are investigating the content of the black pudding and a rabbit with plums, which is a typical Belgian dish.
You will see in the video that she starts the footage in reverse, which means she is showing the finished product we all love just before it is put in the mouth. After that, she begins to explain all the horrifying facts about its production.
If this video can’t make you forget about gummy candies in general, you should at least try to consume some healthy alternatives which are produced with the use of vegan gelatin substitutes, like agar.
You can see the entire process in which our favorite sweet treats are made by the following graphic realization. First of all, the pig carcasses are torched and stripped of their skin. Next, they are boiled down in order to give the flavorless ingredient. The manufacturers also use ligaments, tendons and bones in order to concoct the substance.
Kneepkens says:“I got the assignment to direct some reversed audiovisual stories showing the production of some of our food. I saw quite a few slaughter houses and examples of both industrial and artisan food production.A true eye opener. Jelly’ is candy. But only a few people know they’re made of gelatin from the skin of pigs. Sweet?”
You should definitely try to watch the following video to see the process of making gummy candies and then decide whether they are safe to be consumed or not.
