In this article we are going to present you the gummy snack problem.

The gummy are harmful for you. You need to stop consuming them.

A single serving – 18 gummy bears – contains as much as 22 grams of sugar. That’s 5.5 teaspoons, or 58% of your daily sugar intake. Eating too much sugar, particularly the added variety in gummy bears, leads to a barrage of health problems. That includes cavities, an overactive appetite, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Alina Kneepkens is the owner of the photography’s in the video below, in order to raise the awareness in humans. She declares:

“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.”


If you’re grossed out by the footage above, you might want to stay clear of these as well:

  • Jell-O
  • Marshmallows
  • Starburst
  • Skittles
  • M&Ms
  • Trident gum
  • Hostess Cupcakes

Of course, you’ll also want to stay away from using gelatin in your own cooking. Instead, use organic agar. Agar is a vegan gelatin substitute derived not from animal remains but seaweed. It produces a similar texture without all the ickiness.
