What kind of gelatin does gummy bear vitamins use?

If you look at the ingredients on a package of gummy bears - even organic ones - you'll see expected things like corn orbrown rice syrup and sugar. But you'll also see something calledgelatin. Seems innocent enough, but its source might surprise you.Gelatin is a yellowish, odorless, and nearly tasteless substancethat is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage, and bonesfrom animals. It's made primarily from the stuff meat industrieshave left over - we're talking about pork skins, horns, and cattlebones. Ugh. I guess if you're into the philosophy of using the whole animal,you'll be psyched about this. Plus gelatin contains 18 amino acids,so it does offer some nutritional benefits. But if you're vegan,you'll definitely want to skip the chewy candies and yourgreat-aunt's Jell-O mold - it's made with gelatin, too. Thisanimal-derived ingredient can also be found in some vitamins andmedications, marshmallows (not Trader Joe's - they're vegan!),cheeses, yogurts, soups, salad dressings, jams and jellies, fruitsnacks, and canned hams. If this tidbit of info grosses you out,you'll want to pay closer attention to these products' foodlabels.
