Delicious 3-Ingredient Fruit Candies

Delicious 3-Ingredient Fruit Candies

Fruit Candies have been enjoyed as a sweet treat for centuries, with the earliest recorded candy recipe dating back to ancient Egypt. Today, fruit candies are still a beloved confectionery that continues to evolve with new flavors and textures. One of the most common ingredients in fruit candies is gelatin, a protein derived from animal collagen that is used to create the gummy texture. However, there are now vegan and vegetarian alternatives to gelatin available, such as agar-agar and pectin. Additionally, many fruit candies are now made with natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar, providing a healthier alternative to traditional refined sugar.

Creating your own fruit candies can be a fun and easy project that allows you to customize the flavors and ingredients to your liking. With just three simple ingredients – fruit juice, gelatin, and sweetener – you can whip up a batch of delicious and nutritious fruit candies in no time. Plus, by making your own candies, you can avoid the artificial colors and flavors that are often found in store-bought versions. So why not get creative and experiment with different flavors and shapes to make your own unique and healthy fruit candies?

Needing to know more on Gelatin?

Gelatin is a protein derived from animal collagen, and it does have some health benefits. Gelatin is rich in amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins that our bodies need to function properly. It is also a good source of protein itself, and some studies suggest that it may help to improve skin and joint health. Gelatin is often used as a thickening agent in foods, such as jelly, marshmallows, and some types of candy. While gelatin is generally considered safe to eat in moderation, it is important to note that it is not suitable for everyone. Vegans and vegetarians may choose to avoid gelatin as it is derived from animal sources, and some people may have allergies or intolerances to it. Additionally, some types of gelatin products may be high in sugar or other unhealthy additives, so it is important to read labels carefully and choose products that are made with natural, wholesome ingredients.
