Mehr about...vegan Fruitgums!

What is "veggie" about a fruit jelly?

Veggie is first of all more of a marketing term that means the word "vegetarian". It implies that no animals were killed to make this product. However the products can still contain products coming from animals, such as milk, eggs and honey. There is no statment about the husbandry system.



What is "vegan" about fruit gums? What does "vegan" actually mean?

Vegan goes one step further. No animal products are allowed to be used, neither from living nor from dead animals. Neither in the individual ingredients nor in their manufacturing processes products of any animal origin are allowed to be used. Our Apple juice, for example, is therefore not clarified with egg white. Fruit gums must not be coated with beeswax at the end of the production process to prevent them from sticking together; instead, a vegetable wax must be used, in our case carnauba wax.


Is "veggie" the same as "vegan"?

Therefore the two terms are not synonymous, although this often happens in colloquial language.The term "vegan" is much clearer and ultimately more environmentally and animal friendly than simply saying "without gelatin".


Do I have to be vegan to like Lühders' fruit gums?

Of course not! Our vegan fruit gums contain lots of fruit juice, are soft and only naturally flavoured. They tastes delicious and not at all like giving up! Nobody has to eat vegan or even veggie in every situation, but with our vegan fruit gums it's really a good idea!


How long has LÜHDERS been making vegan fruit gums?

In fact, some of our recipes have been used since grandfather Lühders founded the company in 1909. At that time, the requirements were certainly quite different; it was essentially to proceed the fruits and keep them during winter as tasty as possible. Today, things have been changed. To protect the enviroment and to have a delicious and natural treat we go back to traditional production process and natural ingredients.


Are vegan fruit gums better for the climate?

The production of vegan fruit gums uses just as much energy as veggie gums or fruit gums with animal gelatine. There are also no significant differences in the packaging. There is still a lot to do here in the near future, because climate neutrality will have to be achieved very soon. However, using no animal ingredients also means doing it without the extremely climate-damaging factory farming. That´s why vegan fruit gums have a clear advantage.

More about...Ginger

What is ginger and where does it come from?

Ginger is an herbaceous plant that grows in the warmer regions of Asia and the Pacific. The tuber has been used there for ages in cooking and medicine. and in medicine. Ginger contains essential oils, resin acids and, above all, the flavour-determining and pungent gingerol.


Why is ginger usually cheap on the vegetable shelf, while chocolates and confectionery made from it are often more expensive?

The ginger from the supermarket vegetable shelf is harvested very late, very ripe, when the tuber is already very large and the yield is high. This ginger is usually very fibrous, almost woody. This is usually not tragic in the kitchen, but would spoil the fun with fine confectionery and lace. We only buy ginger that is very young, small young, small and correspondingly tender. Naturally, this is much more expensive. Most of the time, this young ginger is not yet very spicy, but overall "rounder and more harmonious" in taste.



Is ginger always "vegan"?

The ginger itself is, of course. However, the processing is important, Some of our Ginger items are covered with chocolate. These can be called suitable for vegetarian but not vegan. Other items are glazed or sugared. These can be called vegan.



Do you have recipes for the Ginger Syrup?

Yes, we have some but we would like to expand the number of recipes. We are therefore interested in yours. Feel free to send us your favourites and get one of our delicious ginger boxes as a present as soon as we publish it.

What do we do with it?
Well, quite simple is to use the ginger syrup for lemonade: some fresh Ginger, some syrup, ice cubes, soda. Delicious and refreshing. Try to add a few drops to your hot tea, in your dessert or top your yogurt or ice cream.When backing you can replace sugar (or parts of it) with ginger syrup and give cakes and pastries a different flavor.
Any stew gains flavour with a splash of ginger syrup. In salad dressings it replaces sugar completely. Use it in barbecue marinades for meat or vegetables and enjoy the spicy taste and the appetizing colour.


Since when has LÜHDERS been making ginger products?

Grandfather Lühders founded his fruit trading company in 1909. The proximity to the international port was of course favourable to buy exotic fruits and Ginger. The potential of this root was recognised early but it took a few more years before ginger became popular and another few years before it was processed into sweets.

Surely available at your favourite specialist retailer, department stores' or best-stocked grocery shop.

A lot of handwork, a lot of skill, pure tradition! Sure you can guess it: Available at your specialist retailer, the department stores' or the best-stocked grocery shop.


Fruit gums? With lots of fruit juice? Only natural flavours?

Naturally: We have always made fruit gums with a high content of fruit juice. Simply because the taste is better. Try it yourself! Our fruit juice bears contain 8 (!!) different fruit juices! Apple, peach, pear, grapefruit, tangerine, strawberry, raspberry, wild berry and blackcurrant juice, to be exact! No one can keep up with that.

Do these famous Orange and Lemon jelly slices still exist?

Of course. These are still nearly completly handmade. You can see it, you can taste it and you can easily distinguish them from the simple industrial goods. Our Orange & Lemon Slices slices are perfect as decoration for desserts or even better for cakes. Or you can just eat them as they are. It's fruit! :-)


What about alcohol pralines?

Still available but only at Christmas time. Liquid filled with red wine, brandy, whiskey and orange liqueur covered with a fine sugar crust and with dark or milk chocolate. Be patient!

Long history... made short.

Founded in 1909 by Johannes Lühders senior in Hamburg. In these days the company distributed fruits and everything that could be made from fruits. Ginger and vegan were part of the assortment from the beginning. „Vegan“ did not even exist at that time, it was only about the taste. No doubt, we are one of the leading manufacturers of vegan and traditional sweets. After 2 generations the business had already grown so much that we moved to our current location: D-21435 Stelle

Try our treats, you will love them!
