The gelatin in Gummy bears is a good source of protein and it contains collagen, which is one of the materials that make up cartilage and bone. There are many kinds of protein that differ in nutritional values, and they are built on different kinds of amino acids. Therefore, Gummy bears fulfill our body requirements, we need to consume ten different kinds of amino acids to efficiently build all the protein values. Since gelatin is extracted from animal collagen, it meets nine out of the ten amino acids requirements that are essential to our bodies. Gelatin is unusually high in the non-essential amino acids glycine and proline (i.e., those produced by the human body), while lacking certain essential amino acids (i.e., those not produced by the human body).
