The citric acid that is used in our gummies, to preserve freshness, is made through the growth of fungus grown on non-GMO corn. (The citric acid in our liquid vitamins is from citrus.) The corn goes through a process of filtration that removes all traces of mold and corn from it, creating citric acid.
Here is the 5-step process, from the supplier, regarding the fermentation process:
1: Infusion of non-GMO corn, purified water.
2: Automated control of fermentation, with several fermentation parameters that are fully controlled through the automated system.
3: After 24 hours of fermentation, we gain highly reactive raw material that the fermenting strains release.
4: High speed of centrifuge, thoroughly removing impurities to ensure highly active feature of raw materials.
5: Ceramic Membrane: This process rids bacterias and impurities from the fermented raw materials.
