Fond of those gummy bears? You might think twice eating them after watching how they are made!
Gelatin is made of collagen and collagen is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons.
Where do you think the food industry gets an enormous amount of collagen for consistent production of gelatin?
A gruesome video showing how it gelatin is produced is currently trending online and has now raised the eyebrows and dilated the eyes of its consumers.
The explicit footage shows the production of gelatin in reverse as the pig carcasses are stripped of their skin to create the ingredient. The meat industry does not dispose pigs' skins, they extract their collagen instead.
The video was shared by Alina Kneepkens on Facebook entitled "Gelatin - the Real Story" and has since then viewed for more than 7 million times.
Most netizens are disgusted but one netizen knocked some sense into them saying: "Most candy is made from bi products of animals. I don't believe you will stop eating candy and sweets. They don't slaughter pigs for candy. They take what's left from the food industry."
Gelatin is also the same ingredient used to make gummy bears, cola bottles, marshmallows, and ice creams.
