Global Products Group

A bright future for ACV gummies

For thousands of years, a special, tangy elixir has been renowned for natural health and wellness benefits—apple cider vinegar (ACV). Born from a blend of crushed apples, yeast, and sugar, this simple yet powerful concoction continues to surge in popularity, captivating the attention of health enthusiasts and experts alike for its potential benefits.

As the world continues to seek ACV in easy-to-consume formats, the numbers speak volumes. The global ACV market is primed to leap from $578.42 million in 2021 to an astounding $789.37 million by 2028, riding a wave of 4.5% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). Gummies are the leading delivery form for ACV with a 165% year-over-year growth rate, an exciting outlook for brands who are committed to formulating powerful, natural gummy supplements for the market. This surge owes much to the widening availability of ACV products, accessible through both traditional convenience stores and online retail.


Its popularity isn't a modern trend - ACV has been cultivated for centuries and is a staple in households across the globe. From potential blood sugar regulation and weight management support to its reputed ability to combat harmful microorganisms, the power and simplicity of apple cider vinegar are its appeal. Here are some commonly cited benefits:

Digestive Health

ACV is believed to aid digestion by promoting the production of digestive enzymes and increasing stomach acid, which may help break down food more efficiently and alleviate issues like indigestion and bloating.

Weight Loss

This tangy elixir can aid in weight loss by helping to control appetite and stabilize blood sugar levels. It is thought to promote a feeling of fullness and potentially assist in reducing calorie intake.

Blood Sugar Control

Studies show that, when paired with hearty carb-loaded meals, ACV has the power to steadily lower post-meal blood sugar and insulin levels. With guidance from a health professional, ACV can offer a boost for those seeking to control sugar. Along with sugar regulation, ACV can improve insulin sensitivity. Higher sensitivity allows cells to use blood glucose more effectively, reducing blood sugar and possibly benefiting those who need help with weight management, or those who have or are at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Cardiovascular Health

Apple cider vinegar may help lower cholesterol levels due to its acetic acid content, which is thought to inhibit the body's cholesterol synthesis and promote the breakdown of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.

Microbial Benefits

A 2021 study showed that ACV can defend against E. coli and S. aureus bacteria as well as resistant Escherichia coli (rE. coli) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Skin Health

ACV’s natural acidity can help balance the skin's pH levels, which may lead to a clearer complexion and improved overall skin health. Additionally, its antimicrobial properties can assist in combatting acne-causing bacteria, and its gentle exfoliating effect may help remove dead skin cells, leaving the skin looking refreshed.

Other Claims

ACV is also believed to alleviate heartburn symptoms due to its potential ability to help balance stomach acid levels. There are claims that consuming a diluted solution of apple cider vinegar may promote better digestion by increasing acid production in the stomach, which can help prevent the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus, a common cause of heartburn.

Considerations in sourcing ACV

Incorporating ingredients into gummy form is a unique chemistry challenge and each component must be carefully sourced to ensure the right texture, quality, taste, and perfect blend. Dedication to quality and precision requires a disciplined manufacturing timeline. GPG’s clients are partners in forecasting manufacturing requirements and velocity reports to guarantee that all the materials are sourced optimally for production schedules. 

Apple cider vinegar is made from apples which nature takes time to grow, and our sourcing specialists know where to procure materials from the right crops.The selection process for apples used in apple cider vinegar considers:

  • Variety: Different apple varieties have varying levels of sugars, acids, and flavors. The choice of apple variety influence the taste and characteristics of the cider vinegar. Varieties that are high in sugar content are often preferred for cider vinegar production because they can lead to a more flavorful and aromatic end product.
  • Sugar Content: Apples with higher sugar content are desirable for making cider vinegar because the sugars are converted into alcohol during the fermentation process, and then further into acetic acid by the vinegar-producing bacteria. This contributes to the vinegar's tangy flavor.
  • Acid Content: Apples with a good balance of acidity are important for creating the right conditions for fermentation and the development of acetic acid. Adequate acidity helps create a favorable environment for the growth of the acetic acid bacteria that convert the alcohol into vinegar.
  • Taste and Aroma: The flavor and aroma of the apples will influence the overall profile of the apple cider vinegar. Sweeter apples might result in a milder vinegar, while tart apples could lead to a more robust and tangy vinegar.
  • Freshness: Fresh, ripe apples are preferred for cider vinegar production. Overripe or damaged apples may introduce off-flavors or contaminants into the final product.
  • No Additives: It's important to select apples that are free from any additives, pesticides, or chemicals. Organic or locally sourced apples are preferred for making high-quality cider vinegar.
  • Blend: Cider vinegar makers often use a blend of apple varieties to achieve a balanced and complex flavor profile. This can help ensure consistency in the taste and quality of the vinegar.
  • Processing: Once the apples are selected, they are typically crushed or pressed to extract the juice. The juice is then fermented to convert the sugars into alcohol, followed by the acetic acid fermentation to create vinegar.
