Almost half of adults worldwide take vitamin supplements, the most common form being multivitamins, which can fill many different nutritional gaps in one supplement. Indeed, most people can obtain sufficient vitamins and minerals from a balanced diet, but according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people's diets are not balanced. The reasons range from convenience to a lack of healthy choices.
Vitamin supplements come in many different forms like traditional pills, capsules and gummies. In the past, gummy vitamins were marketed toward kids because they’re easier to take and taste better, though you can now find gummy vitamins for any age. However, the question remains: Are gummy vitamins effective?
In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits and potential risks of taking gummy vitamins, who gummy vitamins are best for and a few examples of my favorite gummy vitamins on the market right now. Let’s take a look.
Benefits of Gummy Vitamins
Gummy vitamins are attractive because they go down a lot easier than traditional capsules or pills. You can simply pop gummy vitamins into your mouth, chew and swallow. You don’t need a glass of water, and you don’t have to worry about the size of the vitamin or it getting stuck on the way down.
Vitamins that come in pill or capsule form tend to be tasteless because you’re not chewing or breaking them down in your mouth. However, gummy vitamins are usually sweetened with a gram or two of sugar. They can also be flavored to taste better.
Easier to digest
Because you chew gummy vitamins before swallowing them, your body has already started the digestive process. That means gummy vitamins are typically easier to digest than other forms of vitamin supplements that may have protective coatings.
Gummy Vitamin Taste
One feature kids and adults typically love about gummy vitamins is the taste. Gummy vitamins are usually sweetened and flavored to give them a good taste that encourages you to take them. You can find gummy vitamins with almost any flavor, but the most common are fruit flavors.
Who Gummy Vitamins Are Best For
Kids. Children can benefit most from taking a gummy vitamin for several reasons. The first is that kids tend to eat based on preference rather than quality. Gummy vitamins taste good, and that encourages kids to take them. Another reason is because many kids struggle to swallow tablets and capsules, especially before the age of 10.

Adults who struggle with taking pills. Kids aren’t the only ones who struggle to swallow capsules and pills. Somewhere between 10 and 40 percent of the adults in the U.S. struggle to swallow large capsules and pills for a number of psychological, emotional and physical reasons. Gummy vitamins eliminate that obstacle.
People who don’t eat certain food groups. Vegans and strict vegetarians are at a higher risk for nutrient deficiencies, because some nutrients are much more available in meat and animal-derived products. A gummy vitamin is an easy way to help fill those nutrient gaps, as long as it doesn't contain gelatin, which is animal-based.

Raising Film Cooking System
Cooking is a two-stage process that involves dissolving the granulated sugar or isomaltose and evaporating the resultant syrup to achieve the required final solids.The cooking can be completed in a Jet cooker. This is a simple venturi-style device that subjects the cooked syrup to a sudden drop in pressure, causing the excess moisture to flash off.
The partially cooked syrup enters the Microfilm cooker. This is a raising film cooker that comprises a steam-heated tube down the inside of which the syrup passes. The surface of the cooker tube is scraped by a series of blades to form a very thin film of syrup that cooks in a matter of seconds as it passes down the tube into a collecting chamber . Cooking temperature is reduced by holding the cooker under vacuum. Rapid cooking at the lowest possible temperature is vitally important to avoid heat degradation and process inversion that would reduce clarity and lead to shelf life problems such as stickiness and cold flow.
