    Do they really use beeswax in gummy sweet making?
    "Ingredients: Glucose syrup, sugar, fruit juice from concentrate (3%), citric acid, gelling agent: pectin, hydrolysed pea protein, fruit and vegetable concentrates (grape, blackcurrant, elderberry, apple, safflower), flavourings (strawberry, cherry, raspberry and grape), glazing agent: beeswax."

    Makes 'em look pretty though eh?!

    Still better than the other Percy Pigs which have real pig in them!

    It's not when I really consider it, but I think the sources of stuff we use every day are pretty fascinating - especially in today's world when so many of us are so far separated from that end of the production process.

    Next time you're enjoying some vanilla ice cream, consider this ingredient:

    Castoreum



    What it really is:
    anal glad secretions and urine from a beaver
    This ingredient is commonly found in vanilla ice cream and raspberry flavored foods.
