Chewable, plant-based supplements, always convenient and delicious


Gummy vitamins aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, adults are responsible for a surge in popularity of this dosage form, accounting for 80% of the market in recent years. Today’s consumers are opting for chewable gummies to reduce pill fatigue and support their active, on-the-go lifestyles since they can be taken anytime without water or food. More than 75 million people worldwide follow a vegan, kosher and/or halal diet and this number continues to grow year over year, leading to an equal rise in the need for plant-based alternatives to traditional gelatin gummies.

Consumers who may have grown up eating gelatin-based gummy bears, fruit snacks and marshmallows, are looking for this familiar mouthfeel, taste and texture in their supplements. Switching from gelatin to animal-free alternatives can be intimidating since that well-known texture and taste is harder to achieve with pectin and carrageenan. But with the right ingredients and a little help from a trusted manufacturing partner, plant-based gummies can provide an excellent sensory experience to consumers. And as a bonus for gummy manufacturers, these alternatives increase heat stability, ensuring gummies won’t melt together or stick to the inside of the bottle.

DuPont will walk you through every step of the process to ensure your gummy supplements deliver a positive consumer experience with every taste. If transitioning to plant-based alternatives is your goal, we can help identify the best ingredients to create supplements with a superior sensory experience, processing and delivery. Backed by a broad portfolio of natural ingredients, our team of global experts can help you create safe, high-quality gummies both adults and children will love.
