Gummy supplement manufacturer TopGum Industries has announced it is launching a new clean-label IronGum formula with no metallic aftertaste or added sugar.

IronGum is the latest addition to TopGum's Gummiceutical line, which helps people overcome obstacles to iron supplements.

The vegan gummies do not have a metal-like taste, which is typical of iron supplements, the company claimed. Their pleasing flavour and smooth texture eliminate the need for consumers to swallow large pills.

“IronGum combines technologies to deliver a high-dose iron supplement without the unpleasant metallic aftertaste. The patent-pending Gummiceuticals technology makes great-tasting chewable gummies with no added sugar,” said Doron Delouya, Chief Product Officer for TopGum.

 “The formula uses fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS) fibres, which are plant prebiotic dietary fibers with natural sweetness. FOS fibers get digested only once they reach the colon. These natural prebiotic fibers ease digestion and enhance nutrient absorption.”

He added that the proprietary TopCaps microencapsulation system masks unpleasant flavors while efficiently supplying iron and other active ingredients.

 “We at TopGum have applied our proprietary capabilities to design clean-label gummies without added sugar, artificial sweeteners, or sugar alcohols. We use only natural colours and flavors. Our vegan, pectin-based formula further sets our non-GMO IronGum products apart.”

  • The company will introduce this functional gummy at Vitafoods Europe 2024 in Geneva from May 14 to 16.
