The Diamond Team Difference
At Gummi World, we pride ourselves on creating a customized gummi
formulation that is exclusive to our clients and only uses the finest of
ingredients to improve health and wellbeing while maintaining optimal taste
While other gummi manufacturers may use high fructose corn syrup, load
their product with sugar crystals, or simply spray a chemical vitamin on the
surface of pre-produced candy, we literally build your gummi to your
All of this could not be possible without the skills and expertise our Diamond
Team puts into creating your product.
The Gummi World Diamond Team consists of six, full-time employees
including an executive pastry chef, food scientist, food chemist, PharmD,
medical doctor, and quality assurance specialist. These nutraceutical experts
work individually and together every step of the way until your gummi meets
The Diamond Team is led by Gummi World General Manager and food scientist Stephen Roman, who has more than 20 years of experience in the industry.
“We work with highly-standardized forms of potent botanical extracts and
draw from holistic and nutraceutical research to formulate the most
innovative functional gummies in the world. Usually ‘good for you’ and
‘gummies’ don't go hand in hand, but I guarantee that our scientists and
formulators will make you sweet on our science,” said Roman.
What Makes a Gummi World Gummi Different Than Others:
Most gummies that have flooded the vitamins and supplement market are
full of corn syrup, refined white sugar, dextrose, artificial flavors, and artificial
colors. This is where the Gummi World difference first comes into play.
Our gummies are free from high-fructose corn syrup and only use ethically
sourced, raw ingredients. Our executive chef, Anthony Songin, helps to craft
your custom formulation using the finest ingredients. Songin holds a Culinary
Arts Degree from the Hyde Park Culinary Institute of America and was named
Chef of The Year by the American Culinary Federation.
Chef Songin says the building blocks of a quality gummi begin with a unique
taste while maintaining nutritional value.
“You don’t have to sacrifice taste to live a natural, healthy life. That’s where my
expertise comes in, and where culinary meets confection in the Gummi
World,” said Songin.
Working with vitamins and minerals can be a challenge to maintain the
appealing taste which the Gummi World Diamond Team prides itself on and
the chemical compounds can result in extreme challenges to the structural
integrity of the gummi matrix itself in processing and in final form. If not
executed properly, these specialty ingredients can make gummies go soft.
However, the Gummi World team of scientists, formulators, and engineers
always make a firm commitment to delivering quality, innovative gummies. Once taste and texture have been perfected, the focus goes into the health and wellness benefits of your gummi with the expertise of the Gummi World pharmacist.
"We ensure that each gummi provides safe and efficacious nutritional value
backed by evidence-based medicine," said Ankit Shukla, Pharm.D.
Gummi World food scientist Christina Wessel works to make sure your
gummi meets your expectations and our high standards.
"With frequent third-party lab analysis on all our products, we are able to
ensure the highest quality raw ingredients, combine to make the perfect
gummi,” said Wessel.
Dr. Ayan Monpara, Gummi World Chief Medical Officer, is also part of the
Diamond Team. Dr. Monpara is a member of the American College of
Healthcare Executives and says that making sure your gummi has the
benefits you desire is a top priority.
“Improving a healthy lifestyle through gummies should be a fun and creative
process for our clients. The nutritional value of a gummi that benefits the
consumer is equally as important as its exceptional taste and texture,” said
Darryl Davis-Rosas is the process development engineer at Gummi World. Darryl scales lab formulations to a level of mass production, also known as commercialization, as a
client’s idea on paper becomes a reality in a bottle. He also monitors the equipment to maximize efficiency. Darryl has degrees in Chemical Engineering and Food Science with large-scale manufacturing experience.
Even with all of the proven experience and professional expertise that each
member of our Diamond Team puts into the creation of your product,
Gummi World goes the extra mile by adhering to Current Good
Manufacturing Practices, also known as cGMP.
Current Good Manufacturing Practices, a stringent form of the more
commonly known Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), is a system for
ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according
to quality standards. The main difference between cGMP and GMP is that the
most recent standards, technology, and methods are being applied to
operations. The terms are largely interchangeable, with one major difference:
the use of the term cGMP implies a commitment to the highest available
standards of quality which is why it is important to make the distinction in a
competitive and rapidly adapting market.
The system is designed to minimize the risks involved in any production that
cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. cGMP covers all
aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment
to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures are
essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product
and there must be documented proof that correct procedures are
consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process.
Gummi World quality assurance specialist Monica Larrosa utilizes her three
decades of experience across the nutraceutical industry to put these best
practices into place.
"Having a passion for quality and process improvement, I love working with
the team here at Gummi World because everyone values the need for quality
and embraces the quote of W. Edwards Deming, Quality is everyone's
responsibility," said Larrosa.
