The Rise of Gummy Supplements
In the dynamic landscape of VMS products, gummies have emerged as a leading delivery format, witnessing a considerable rise in the industry, with global launches increasing by an astounding 172% between 2017 and 2021, as reported by Mintel. In fact, in the United States alone, gummy product launches represented 25% of total launches in 2022, underscoring the escalating demand for products in this format. According to Nutrition Business Journal’s Delivery Format Report 2022, gummies have now become the most popular supplement delivery format, reflecting their growing prominence in the market. This surge in popularity is driven by consumers seeking convenient and enjoyable ways to incorporate supplements into their daily routines. Recognizing this trend, major supplement brands are actively expanding their portfolios to include top-selling gummy supplements, further fueling the demand for innovative solutions to overcome existing challenges.
Challenges in the Supply Chain
Despite their popularity, traditional gummy formulations face inherent vulnerabilities, particularly when exposed to high temperatures during the stages of storage, loading, and transportation. The unique composition of gummies, comprising various agents and ingredients, renders them susceptible to melting, which not only compromises their physical appearance but also alters their chemical properties, impacting overall product quality. A recent article by Natural Products Insider highlights the complexities involved in formulating successful gummy products, emphasizing the need for specialized expertise in navigating the challenges posed by temperature fluctuations throughout the supply chain.
Introducing GummieX™ Technology
In response to these challenges, Funtrition® has introduced GummieX™ technology, a revolutionary solution designed to address the inherent limitations of traditional gummy formulations. By harnessing a proprietary blend of thermo-reversible and thermo-irreversible gelling agents, this technology enhances the thermal resistance of gummies, enabling them to withstand high temperatures without compromising their integrity. This breakthrough innovation not only ensures product stability throughout the supply chain but also enhances the sensorial experience for consumers, setting a new standard for gummy supplements in the industry.
Benefits of GummieX™
GummieX™ technology offers a multitude of benefits for brands and consumers alike. By eliminating the need for cold chain logistics, brands can significantly reduce logistic costs and minimize time-to-market challenges, thereby enhancing their competitive edge in the market. Moreover, GummieX™ gummies consistently meet stringent quality standards, ensuring consumer satisfaction and brand credibility.
