Delicious, healthy, fun - and I love the compostable packaging.
Just an excellent idea as I am travelling a lot - would use this to ensure I am not just eating s**t food in the airport.
I was excited to try them, now I can't get em outta my head. Please send more!
Love them very very much. The gingerella are SO DANG GOOD for us ginger lovers.
I love chewy sweets and since I'm trying to be more healthy, this is perfect to snack on when I'm wanting something sweet and chewy.
What’s in the gumdrops?
The main ingredients are organic fruit and vegetable purees, juices, and juice concentrates, equivalent to at least one full 80g serving of produce per packet, plus inulin - a prebiotic fiber derived from the agave and chicory plants. The gumdrops are set using pectin, from citrus fruit, and the only preservative added is lemon juice. Traces of sunflower oil (used to grease the gumdrop molds) and rice flour (to stop them sticking together) are also present. All ingredients are certified organic. No refined sugars or artificial sweeteners are added. Find the full ingredients and nutrition facts for each flavor here: berrylicious, bananarama, passionista and gingerella.
How do they compare to standard gummies (candy)?
Unlike most other gummies, our gumdrops do not contain refined sugars or artificial sweeteners, only sugars derived from fruits and veggies. The gumdrops are set using pectin (plant-derived), rather than gelatin (animal-derived). They contain no dyes, colorants, carriers, artificial flavors or preservatives. Notably, each packet of gumdrops delivers the same amount of gut-friendly plant fiber as a cup of brown rice - as far as we know, this is unique to kencko (most gummies contain zero fiber). Fiber helps your body to absorb sugars more slowly - compare the effect of eating whole fruit versus drinking fruit juice.
Why does the label say “added sugar?” I thought you said no sugar is added.
We definitely do not add any refined sugar to our gumdrops. However, it’s no secret that our gumdrops are rich in naturally-occurring sugars - that’s one of the reasons they taste so yummy! The ingredients include fruit and vegetable juices in regular and concentrated forms, as well as fruit and vegetable purees. Sugars from concentrated fruit juice are counted as “added sugars” in the US (though not in Europe) - so they are listed that way on the nutrition facts label.
Are they vegan-friendly?
Yes. Our gumdrops are set with pectin (from citrus fruits) and do not contain any animal products or derivatives.
Do the gumdrops contain allergens?
kencko gumdrops contain none of the US major eight allergens (milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans), or the EU list of 14 (celery, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, peanuts, sesame, soybeans, sulphur dioxide and sulphites, and tree nuts), but may be processed in a facility that also handles those ingredients. If you are allergic to any other foodstuffs, please check the full ingredients lists for berrylicious, bananarama, passionista and gingerella.
