HARIBO gummies – the ingredients

HARIBO has high demands with regard to the quality of basic ingredients used in their products. Only absolutely perfect raw materials are used in HARIBO products. Gummi products are made from a mixture of corn syrup (makes them transparent), sugar and dextrose (for sweetness) and gelatin (for the "chew"). Added to this mixture are fruit and plant extracts, flavors, colors and a little citric acid.

Gelatin – the alternative to Gummi arabicum

Since the eighties, HARIBO has generally been using gelatin in place of the Gummi arabicum which had been used most frequently as a basic ingredient until this time. Gelatin contains neither fats nor carbohydrates.


Some jelly products are also made with starch (e.g. Funny Mix or Jelly Beans) which means that these products can be enjoyed by vegetarians.


Since the end of the eighties, HARIBO products have obtained their colourful appearance as a result of the use of fruit and plant extract concentrates. Mixtures containing fruit preparations such as blackcurrants, oranges, lemons, elderberries, red currants, aronia, grape, spinach, nettle, passion fruit, mango, carrots, kiwi and apple produce the necessary colours.

HARIBO combination products

HARIBO combination products are made from sugar and caramelized sugar syrup, like our popular HARIBO HAPPY COLA.
