What are SmartSweets sweetened with?
SmartSweets are sweetened with plant-based, non-gmo stevia. Stevia is a low-glycemic sweetener extracted from leaves of the Stevia Rebaudiana plant. It provides great tasting calorie-free sweetness. We proudly use no sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners in SmartSweets.
How is there 28g of fiber in every bag? Where does it come from?
SmartSweets gummies are packed with natural and GMO-free fibre from plant-based chicory root and tapioca! Both are soluble fibre sources that keep your insides healthy, while slowing the digestion of our candy, allowing you to feel fuller longer.
Are SmartSweets non-GMO, gluten-free and allergen friendly?
Yes! SmartSweets ingredients are proudly non-GMO, gluten-free and allergen friendly. Our products are made in a dedicated gluten, peanut, tree-nut, dairy, soy and casein free-facility.
What is Carnauba Wax?
Great question! Carnauba Wax is a natural renewable resource used as a coating for our gummy bears. It is grown in Brazil and is harvested from the leaves of the Carnauba palm. The wax is harvested using traditional procedures that doesn't damage the trees. Fun fact: the use of carnauba wax creates an economic incentive to keep the trees standing.
Once opened, how long do SmartSweets last?
We proudly have no preservatives or additives in SmartSweets. Because our products are made with natural ingredients with no preservatives or additives, once opened SmartSweets will begin to harden if left exposed to air. When sealed, SmartSweets are shelf-stable for 1 year.
Are SmartSweets plant-based?
Our Fruity and Sour Gummy Bears both contain gelatin, but with our plant-based products, we decided to kick gelatin too! Creating the first ever 100% plant based #KickSugar candy- Sweet Fish, Sour Blast Buddies & Peach RIngs!
Are SmartSweets kosher?
Our Fruity Gummy Bears and Sour Gummy Bears both contain pork based gelatin, and our Sweet Fish, Sour Blast Buddies & Peach Rings are gelatin free (pork free) but not kosher.
