5 Essential Tips for Creating Gummy Supplements

Posted October 17, 2023

The nutraceutical industry has seen a surge in popularity, with gummy supplements emerging as a favorite among consumers of all ages. These chewy, flavorful supplements offer a convenient and tasty way to incorporate essential nutrients into daily routines. However, creating effective gummy supplements is no cakewalk; it requires careful consideration and planning. Here are five key tips to keep in mind when developing your own gummy supplements:

1. Define Your Target Audience and Parameters

Before you begin the journey of formulating gummy supplements, it's crucial to have a clear understanding of your target audience. What is the ideal serving size for your product? What price point are you aiming for? Depending on your target market, you may need to consider factors such as clean-label requirements, sugar-free options, or vegan formulations. This initial planning stage is essential to determine the use of premium ingredients and potential marketing claims.

2. Carefully Choose Active Ingredients

Selecting the right active ingredients is a pivotal step in creating gummy supplements that deliver results. Look for science-backed ingredients with efficacious doses that align with your gummy's serving size. The effectiveness of your product hinges on the quality and quantity of these active components.

3. Understand Ingredient Interactions

Active ingredients may interact with one another or with inactive components in your gummy formulation. It's vital to assess these interactions to ensure the stability and effectiveness of your product. In some cases, you may need to adjust, such as swapping out certain ingredients, to achieve a stable gummy formula.

4. Consider the Manufacturing Process

The manufacturing process can significantly impact the active ingredients in your gummy supplements. Heat-sensitive ingredients may require overages to maintain label claims throughout the product's shelf life. To ensure accurate testing of active levels in your gummy supplements, you can rely on specialized services like Kemin Health's Customer Lab Services, dedicated to testing actives in finished supplements, including gummies.

5. Pay Attention to Flavor

The flavor of your gummy supplements plays a crucial role in consumer acceptance. Opt for bright, complex, and natural flavors when designing your nutraceutical gummies. It's important to note that many vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and high-intensity sweeteners can impact the sensory qualities of your gummy. Consider striking a balance between classic fruit flavors and trendy or exotic options to create an appealing taste profile.
