After Seeing How Gummy Candies ARE Really Made, YOU WILL NEVER Eat Them Again (Disturbing & Graphic)
We all have good memories of our childhood days , where we spend all day participating playing with friends, when we had no real problems, and our biggest wish was to own the candy shop nearby the house.
With the time, we learn how to avoid these sweet sins because we care for our figure, healthy life, and perfect skin. Yet, once in a while, we crave for a delicious candy and we can not resist it.
However, if you are fond of gummy worms, gummy bears, or peach rings, and cannot avoid having them every now and then, the video we are presenting today can help you a lot with this.
The following short film by a Belgian filmmaker Alina Kneepkens will drastically change the way you look at gummy bears. Alina shows the process of production of the candies in details, and it’ll definitely keep you very far way away from them.
It is a part of a series of videos documenting the devastating conditions under which our food is produced. A number of the other videos investigate this content of the black pudding, and a rabbit with plums, which is a typical Belgian dish.
The footage starts in reverse, showing the finished product, right before it is put in the mouth. Then, she starts to explain all the horrifying facts about its production.
Yet, if this video is not too disgusting that you will just forget about gummy candies, you have to know that we now have also some healthy alternatives that are produced by using vegan gelatin substitutes, like agar.
The following graphic realization of the complete process will depict the way our favorite sweet treats are made. Initially, the pig carcasses are torched stripped with their skin, and afterward boiled right down to give the flavorless ingredient. The procedure also uses the bones, tendons, and ligaments to be able to concoct the substance.
On her website, Kneepkens on the video that serves to open our eyes:
“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?”
Therefore, you should watch the video below and make a decision whether you want to put a gummy candy in the mouth once again:
