General

All our gummies are vegan. They do not contain gelatin, but pectin and/or starch for structure and binding. The starch comes from corn and pectin is extracted from the skin of fruits. So not from animals!

The answer to this question is actually quite simple: to make our gummies taste good.
The taste of vitamins and supplements is bitter and foul, and sugar can compensate for this. We did look for a ratio in which the sugar content is as low as possible. That’s why there is a small amount of stevia in our gummies with sugar. Where possible we have made our gummies sugar free, or we are developing a sugar free version.

For us, making our products taste good is always the top priority, as this allows you to enjoy your routine more and build a habit so easily!

 

What sweeteners do the sugar-free gummies contain?
Yes, sugar free Yummygums contain stevia and maltitol. Stevia is a natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant. Maltitol is a sugar substitute containing 75-90% of the sweetness. It is obtained from maltose (malt sugar), which comes from wheat or maize. This sweetener has almost the same properties as sugar, only it is a lot healthier! Maltitol is very low in calories, is better for your teeth and has less effect on your blood sugar level.

 

Store your Yummygums in the closed jar in a cool, dry place, at room temperature. Do not store Yummygums in the refrigerator.

 

Yes, of course! If you remove the labels, the Yummygums jars are recyclable. The transparent jars are made of rPet. An rPET jar is made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). That sounds complicated, but the bottom line is that it consists of previously used PET plastic. This makes our new jars 100% recycled and recyclable! So, very responsible.

Frequently asked questions Multi+

Adults and children over 12 years of age are allowed to take four gummies a day. Do not exceed the daily recommended dose of four gummies.

Possibly, but we have developed sugar free Yummygums Kids especially for children of 3 to 12 years of age. Children over 12 years of age, just like adults, are allowed to take four Multi+ gummies a day. If you still want to give Multi+ to children younger than 12 years of age, the dose is two gummies per day. We do not recommend Yummygums for children under three years of age due to the risk of suffocation. All our jars have a child resistant lid.

No, as long as you stick to the daily dose of gummies, that is within safe limits. Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin for which your body builds a ‘reserve stock’. This is a relatively small and non-harmful stock. In case of high intake, the body itself can limit the absorption of vitamin B12 from the diet.

The tolerable upper limit of vitamin D intake for adults and children over 11 years of age is 100 micrograms per day. Yummygums Multi+ contain a dose of vitamin D3 of 30 mcg, which is well below this limit.

No, fortunately not. Our gummies are well below the upper limit for vitamin B6. We always follow to the official advice of the Dutch Health Council when compiling our products.

We recommend that you switch to Yummygums Mommy during your pregnancy. This is a multivitamin specially formulated for when you want to become pregnant, as well as during and after pregnancy.

When in doubt, always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements. So you know for sure that you can safely take the Yummygums in your situation and in addition to any (prescribed) medicines you are taking.

If you combine the Hair and Multi+, you do not exceed the established maximum upper limit of vitamins. However, we don’t recommend it because both gummies contain overlapping vitamins and are each a full supplement to your diet in their own right.

Frequently asked questions Kids

The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for some vitamins is lower for children (determined by the Health Council) than for adults, because children need fewer vitamins. However, stating the adult RDA on the label is a statuytory requirement. We like to keep it simple: with 1 Yummygums Kids, your child will receive a safe, normal dose.

Definitely not! The quantity of vitamins D3 and B12 in Yummygums Kids is safe. The quantity of vitamin D is exactly the amount recommended by the Health Council. The amount of vitamin B12 is slightly higher, but it is safe for children. Moreover, an excess of vitamin B12 does not cause any problems.

Sweeteners are suitable for children, unless they ingest an excessive amount. Don’t worry, Yummygums Kids only contains a little bit of maltitol syrup and stevia.

When in doubt, always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements. So you know for sure that you can safely take the Yummygums in your situation and in addition to any (prescribed) medicines you are taking.

cThat would be possible, but it is definitely not necessary. Both gummies contain 10 micrograms of vitamin D: the exact amount that children need every day.

For optimal results on your hair, we recommend taking Yummygums Hair daily for at least three months. You don’t have to take a break after these 3 months, you can just keep taking them.

No, it is not dangerous if you stick to the recommended daily dose of two gummies. Vitamins can be divided into water-solouble and fat-soluble vitamins. If there is a surplus, water-soluble vitamins are not absorbed, so you pee them out again. Biotin (vitamin B8) is one of the water-soluble vitamin. So, no upper limit has been set for Biotin by the authorities.

Midwives, dieticians and other health experts often recommend that you take little or no extra vitamin A during pregnancy. This is one of the reasons why we have not included vitamin A in our Hair recipe. In principle, you can take Yummygums Hair safely during pregnancy. Nevertheless, we always recommend that you contact a doctor if you have nay dobuts or if you are also combining it with other supplements. This also applies for breastfeeding.

When in doubt, always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements. It is wise to make sure that you can safely take the Yummygums in addition to any (prescribed) medicines you are taking.

No, no need to worry! Yummygums Hair has been developed to support hair growth on the scalp. It will not affect body hair anywhere else, because this is regulated via the hormone system.

When in doubt, always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements. So you know for sure that you can safely take the Yummygums in your situation and in addition to any (prescribed) medicines you are taking.

If you combine the Hair and Multi+, you do not exceed the established maximum upper limit of vitamins. However, we don’t recommend it because both gummies contain overlapping vitamins and are each a full supplement to your diet in their own right.

Frequently asked questions Mommy

Yummygums Mommy is a delicious sugar free raspberry-flavored vitamin gummy, containing all the important vitamins your body needs before, during and after pregnancy.

During this period, your body needs a higher dose of vitamins and minerals than normal and it is almost impossible to get them all through food. Supplementation with supplements is a good option to make sure that you (and your baby) are getting enough nutrients.

Yummygums Mommy provides many benefits before and during pregnancy: the vitamin D3 and folic acid in the gummies help support your energy level and your immune system.

Your body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. Calcium ensures the construction and maintenance of a strong skeleton and that is extra important during pregnancy, both for you and for your baby. The intake of folic acid plays a role in the development of the placenta and the process of cell division. The qunatity of folic acid required for this cannot be obtained entirely from food. The Health Council also recommends extra vitamin D3 and folic acid when you are pregnant.

In addition, the development of your baby takes a lot of energy from your body. So, its not surprising that pregnancy can affect your immunity. Vitamin C is known for its supporting function of the immunity, but folic acid, vitamins B6, B12, D3, and the minerals iron, selenium and zinc also help your immune system. Yummygums Mommy contains a carefully calculated amount of these vitamins and minerals in order to support your immunity during your pregnancy.

After pregnancy, hormonal changes and your new life as a mother can make you feel tired. After the birth, your body also needs time to recover from both childbirth and pregnancy. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B12 and vitamin C in Yummygums Mommy help your body to release energy from your diet, a boost that you can benefit from after childbirth.

If you are breastfeeding too, your body has a greater need for vitamins and minerals than normal. Part of the vitamins and minerals that you ingest, your body passes on to your baby in the form of breast milk. If you do not get enough nutrients yourself, this is initially not at the expense of the composition of the breast milk, but of your own body. That is why you need more vitamins and minerals throughout the period that you are breastfeeding. Yummygums Mommy is sufficient during this period, but it is also possible to switch to Multi+. We recommend consulting your doctor to find out what is best for you.

When you stop using contraception and are trying to become pregnant, the Health Council recommends taking extra folic acid (400 micrograms per day) every day. Folic acid plays a role in the development of the placenta and the process of cell division. The cell division of the fetus starts almost immediately after conception: when you don’t yet know that you are pregnant. That is why it is better to have an optimal folic acid level before conception, so that your baby can develop optimally. The advice is to take 400 micrograms extra folic acid daily until the 10th week of pregnancy. Yummygums Mommy can help you with that.

Beta-carotene is also called provitamin A, and is converted to Vitamin A in your body. Your body is so smart that it just converts the right amount, no more, no less. Because of negative stories, some women avoid vitamin A completely. Because vitamin A is good for your immunity, eyesight and important for a good iron level in the blood, avoiding vitamin A is not wise. Because we use beta-carotene instead of vitamin A, we ensure that you get a safe amount of vitamin A.

Maltitol is a safe sweetener. When assessing sweeteners, the effect in pregnant women is also considered. The Nutrition Center indicates that sweeteners, including maltitol, are not harmful. In addition, Yummygums contains only a small amount of maltitol. So, you don’t need to worry about this sweetener.

When in doubt, always consult your doctor before you start taking supplements. So you know for sure that you can safely take the Yummygums in your situation and in addition to any (prescribed) medicines you are taking.

We do not recommend combining Yummygums Mommy with other products.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS VEGAN OMEGA-3

Yes, you can safely use Yummygums Vegan Omega-3 during your pregnancy.

Our gummies are made with a special vegetable algae oil. This algae oil contains a tiny bit of sugar (<0.04g per gummy), but does not have the well-known fishy taste. This way you can enjoy a gummy with the benefits of Omega-3, without having to suffer from an aftertaste or belching!

Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. The best known are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and the fish fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is in vegetable oils and a little in meat and green leafy vegetables. EPA and DHA are mainly found in fish and shellfish.

Our gummies contain DHA from algae oil, as many people’s bodies cannot produce DHA efficiently. That is why we have consciously chosen to only process this Omega-3 fatty acid, instead of ALA or EPA.

ALA is already converted into EPA and DHA in your body. However, it takes a lot of ALA to make just a little bit of DHA. In addition, we make EPA ourselves from DHA and ALA. For healthy vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians it may be unnecessary to take extra EPA, because with a healthy lifestyle you get enough Omega-3 ALA (which is converted back into EPA). However, if your body does need this, DHA can also be partly converted back into EPA. That means our gummies with DHA are a nice addition to your fatty acid status, whatever your diet.
