If you enjoy Jelly Babies or Gummy Bears or any of those gummy sweets then best you back away right now and not watch this viral video of how they are made. Basically all these types of candy have gelatine as their main ingredient and if you didn’t already know what gelatine (or gelatin) is made of then brace yourself.
Filmmaker Alina Kneepkens created this reverse manufacturing video of how gelatine candy is made and you won’t wanna eat them again in a hurry…
Press play if you really wanna know. Otherwise just keep eating them and keep pretending they are made of sugary deliciousness.
Now you know.
“‘Over Eten’ (On Food) is a tv show focussing on our present knowledge about food, produced by the news department of flemish public broadcaster VRT, Belgium. This ‘Gelatine’ video tells the reversed story of how gelatine candy is actually produced. Starting from wrapped candy, going all the way back to the living pig. Just by showing a series of reversed images it reveals a detailed and truthful story on daily foods and its origin. This video ‘Gelatine’ is one in a series of reversed stories on sugar, crisps, black pudding, rabbit stew, lamb burger, pastry and mozzarella. credits for ‘Gelatine’: director Alina Kneepkens, research Greet Verhaert, editor in chief Bart Mutton.”
