Research shows that anthocyanins have anti-obesity properties. They have also been shown to contain antimicrobial properties, improve neurological health and vision, and protect against several non-communicable diseases  (1, 2).

You can also use other kinds of berries in this recipe to create different flavors of gummy bears. You’ll need berries, erythritol, gelatin powder and hot water. That’s it! You’ll also need to invest in a fun gummy bear shaped silicone mold.

This recipe is free from artificial colors and dyes that are usually found in traditional gummy bears. Studies show that artificial food colors and dyes may cause behavioral problems in children (3).  

Using berries in place of food dyes helps protect your children. It also provides a naturally sweet taste.

In addition to their antioxidant profile, berries are high in fiber, which can help boost digestive and immune health. The contain a good source of vitamin C to help fuel collagen production, keep your skin wrinkle-free, and fight the length of the common cold.

You can use erythritol or another keto-friendly sugar alternative that you like better if you want. It’s a good idea to make sure the gelatin powder comes from high-quality grass-fed sources.

You will need to let these gummies sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. So, keep this in mind if you’re making them for a crowd as kids can be impatient!
