Can You Enjoy Sugar-Free Gummy Bears?

Are you looking for a sweet treat without the sugar? Sugar-free gummy bears are a great option for those looking to reduce their sugar intake or for diabetics. Our 12-flavor sugar-free gummy bears* are cherry, strawberry, mango, pineapple, lemon, orange, green apple, watermelon, pink grapefruit, lime, blue raspberry and grape. Sugar-free gummies tend to use artificial sweeteners such as xylitol, stevia, and erythritol instead of sugar, so they can taste great without adding sugar. Consuming large amounts of sugar-free gummies can cause stomach discomfort, nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and dehydration.

While you may say “Splenda” on the bag, these little animals are mostly sweetened with maltitol, so you should approach overconsumption with the same caution as you would with any other brand of sugar-free gummy bears. In addition, dried fruits have a lower glycemic index than gummies, meaning they won't cause a rapid rise in blood sugar. Most sugar-free gummy bears are sweetened with maltitol, which is known to have a fairly predictable laxative effect on anyone who eats too much. It's important to check the ingredient list before buying them, as some sugar-free gummies may contain maltitol, a sugar alcohol that has a sugar-like effect.

These gummy bears “do not contain sugar” and are made with real fruit juice, two qualities that seem difficult to reconcile in a candy, but with 0 g of real sugar, it seems that they are authentic. They also offer sugar-free versions of their classic candies, such as watermelon, apple, cherry and blue raspberry, as well as sugar-free versions of their hard candies with a sour and sweet flavor. In addition, sugar-free and diabetic-friendly gummy bears are also available, which contain no sugar at all, making them the gummy bears with the lowest sugar content. Many consumers may find that certain gummies contain ingredients that may be beneficial to their dietary goals, such as fiber, probiotics and vitamins.

These gummy bears are free of sugar alcohols or artificial flavorings, and each bag comes with approximately 25 gummies. Sugar-free gummies are often appealing to diabetics, people looking to reduce their sugar intake or those who simply prefer the taste of sugar-free candies. The version of cinnamon bears that is popular in Utah are the Haribo Gold-Bears which are made with real spices and coated with a delicious layer of cinnamon caramel dough. You can still enjoy the sweet taste of a fruity treat with every bag of gummies you eat without subjecting your body to a lot of sugar or unnatural ingredients.

It's best to consume sugar-free gummies in moderation and always check the ingredients on the package before buying or consuming them.
