Ingredients 101

Every ingredient in a Sundaily gummy is there for a reason
— and we’re happy to explain how and why!

We care deeply about what goes into our bodies, which is why we’re committed to total label transparency. Whenever possible, our ingredients are organic, vegan, & non-GMO.

The Base Layer The Back Up
POLYPODIUM LEUCOTOMOS EXTRACT (PLE)

PLE is a highly refined extract of the fern Polypodium leucotomos. This antioxidant-packed botanical helps you resist free radical damage from environmental stressors. Our kosher, professionally-cultivated PLE is sustainably sourced from Ecuador.

VITAMIN D3

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for skin health that supports your skin’s ability to resist environmental stressors like UV light and supports healthy immune function. Our US-sourced, kosher, non-GMO ingredient is the world’s only vegan vitamin D3 and is derived from lichen sources.

ORGANIC TAPIOCA SYRUP

Tapioca syrup is a kosher liquid starch derived from cassava, a potato-like tuber central to the diets of millions of people around the world. It provides gummy body and structure in Sundaily products and is sourced from Vietnam.

ORGANIC CANE SUGAR

All natural gummies require sugar to interact with pectin to firm up the gummy, and ours is organic, non-GMO, and kosher, derived from the sugarcane plant. It’s sourced from multiple countries in South America.

CANE INVERTED SUGAR

Cane inverted sugar is a kosher alternative form of sugar that helps with gummy softness. It's a different arrangement of sugar molecules that dissolves better in liquids.

APPLE PECTIN

Pectin is the “glue” that helps our gummies stick together. Ours is derived from apple pomace, which is the apple flesh left over from applejuice production. It’s made in China by a US company, and is non-GMO, organic compliant, vegan, and kosher.

SODIUM CITRATE

Sodium citrate helps us adjust the pH, or acidity, of our gummy mixture to make sure it solidifies up correctly. It is a salt form of citric acid and is made in Colombia.

TAPIOCA MALTODEXTRIN

Tapioca maltodextrin is a powdered starch extracted from the common tuber cassava. It provides gummy body and structure, and is produced in Thailand.

CITRIC ACID

Citric acid helps adjust the pH or acidity of our gummies, ensuring their structure firms up. Ours is made via a natural fermentation process in the USA.

ORGANIC ORANGE OIL

Orange oil provides our gummies with delicious, all-natural flavor. It is produced in Mexico from Valencia, blood, and sweet oranges, and is organic.

NATURAL ASTAREAL® ASTAXANTHIN

Astaxanthin is The Back Up’s superhero ingredient - a vegan, algae-cultivated source of incredible skin anti-aging benefits. Our astaxanthin is made in the USA and is non-GMO and extracted without solvents.

ORGANIC BROWN RICE SYRUP

Brown rice syrup is a liquid starch, refined from whole brown rice, which provides the gummy body and structure to our gummies. It's organic, sourced from Pakistan, and is non-GMO.

ORGANIC EVAPORATED CANE JUICE

Cane juice is what you get when you squeeze sugarcane! Then evaporation reduces this juice to solid carbohydrates, which is what natural gummies need for pectin to “gel” the gummy. Our evaporated cane juice is organic, non-GMO, and comes from Brazil.

FRUIT PECTIN

Pectin is the “glue” that helps our gummies stick together. In The Back Up, it’s derived from the leftovers of apple and orange juice manufacturing. It’s non-GMO and made in Germany.

ORGANIC BLACKBERRY AND HIBISCUS FLAVOR WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS

Our delicious blackberry hibiscus flavor is organic, non-GMO and made in the USA. It’s what makes these gummies taste so dang good... naturally!

ORGANIC ORANGE JUICE CONCENTRATE

Orange juice concentrate is made by removing water from orange juice so it’s more potent. The OJ concentrate in our gummies adds flavor and helps adjust the acidity (pH) of our gummies so the pectin works as planned. It's organic, non-GMO, and sourced from Turkey, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the USA.

CITRIC ACID

Citric acid helps adjust the pH or acidity of our gummies, ensuring their structure firms up. Ours is non-GMO and made via a natural fermentation process in Belgium.

VEGETABLE OIL (FROM COCONUT AND CANOLA)

This vegetable oil blend ensures that our gummies don’t stick to each other. It’s applied in tiny amounts after forming, is non-GMO, and from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and the EU.

CARNAUBA LEAF WAX

This all-natural gummy coating is made in Brazil from non-MGO carnauba palm trees. It helps our gummies flow nicely during bottle filling and keeps them soft and tasty.

D-ALPHA AND MIXED TOCOPHEROLS

D-alpha and mixed tocopherols are basically fancy ways of saying Vitamin E! Both serve to enhance and preserve the effectiveness of The Back Up's star ingredient, astaxanthin. They're vegetable-derived, non-GMO, and made in the USA and China.
