"Jelly Belly Jelly Beans look and taste so authentic because we insist on using real ingredients whenever possible, like real blueberries, real pomegranate and real cherry juices (to name just a few)"I couldn't resist heading over to Jelly Belly corporate headquarters to have a gander at their awesome "real" ingredients (as opposed to fake ones I suppose).
So what other real ingredients do you get besides a few fruit juices? Here's just a smattering.
Acidity Regulator: E330
Glazing Agents: E901, E903, E904
Colours: E102 [Tartrazine], E110, E132, E133, E150d, E171
Delicious! They might as well just be little fruits.
I really have to remember to plant a Glazing Agent E901 tree this year.
