Healthy & Professional Vegan Gummy Recipe (2)

Today we are sharing a healthy and professional vegan gummy recipe that is 100% gelatine-free.

Unlike the thickeners and gelling agents we have recommended in the past, this vegan gummy recipe does not use pure carrageenan or agar, but a custom compounded product Blends 048.

The product Blends 048 is a blend of carrageenan and other high-quality ingredients. They are mixed in scientific proportions according to their respective physical and chemical properties.

It contributes to a chewy, gelatin-like texture in the production of vegan jelly gummies.
