HARIBO jellies – the ingredients

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

Gelatine – the alternative to Gummi arabicum

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

Starch and agar-agar

Some jelly products are also made with starch and agar-agar 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 Double deposited

HARIBO double deposited products are made up of a foam and jelly combination, like the famous fried eggs from Starmix.

HARIBO combination products

HARIBO combination products are made from sugar, brown sugar syrup, gelatine, glucose, fruit and plant extract concentrates as well as flavourings, combined with liquorice. Particularly popular are the multi-layered poured combinations of fruit gum confectionary and foam sugar mass.

HARIBO wine gums

HARIBO wine gums are made from sugar, gelatine, glucose syrup, dextrose (grape sugar), a small proportion of wine and the addition of flavourings and colourings. The tiny proportion of alcohol in the wine is boiled away completely during production.
