Gummies are gelatin ‘lollies’ sweetened using fruit. They are easy to make, contain only a handful of ingredients and use the gut-healing superstar, gelatin.
Gelatin contains amino acids that helps to seal leaky gut, feeds the good bacteria in your intestinal tract and can improve sleep, reduce inflammation, reduce sugar cravings and can help with joint pain.

Gelatin makes up almost one-third of all the protein in our bodies and not having enough affects our joints, our skin and our gastro system.
Traditionally through eating all parts of the animal (organ meat, marrow and bones), cooking in animal fats and drinking bone broth or stock we got enough gelatin. However, because of modern lifestyles our intake of gelatin-rich foods has drastically decreased.
Gelatin is basically cooked collagen and comes from the bones, hides and connective tissues of animals. Gelatin is found in concentrated amounts in foods like bone broth, but also comes in a powdered supplement that ‘sets’ liquids and turns them to jellies.
Kids love these jellies and they can be made into fun molds or set into squares.

Like all lollies these gut healing gummies are best enjoyed in moderation.

Makes 20-30 jellies or squares depending on the size of your moulds.
There are numerous gelatin gummy recipes on the internet. Our base recipe is a hybrid of Pete Evans and Sarah Wilson’s gummy recipes.
Note: Some molds are fiddly and sometimes the gummies can get a bit stuck. Molds are great for getting kids to eat them, but here at BePure we find it easiest to simply use a plain glass container and cut into gummy squares.
