Applications - Confectionery

From gummy bears and marshmallows to hard-boiled and chewable sweets, our gelatine and hydrocolloid ingredients are perfect for your confectionery manufacturing needs.

In chewy sweets, gelatine acts as an excellent emulsifier, but also as a gelling, foaming and stabilising agent, giving products a pleasant texture in the mouth, a feeling of indulgence and a long-lasting flavour release.

Being water-soluble, gelatine is totally digestible and compatible with most other hydrocolloids, including agar, alginatescarrageenan and pectin, as well as sugars and flavours – all popular within confectionery.

Benefits of Gelatine in Confectionery

Gelatine is a popular ingredient in confectionery for several reasons. Here are some key benefits of using gelatine in confectionery:

Texture: Gelatine is a protein that can form a gel-like structure when mixed with liquid and cooled. This property is useful in confectionery, where it can be used to create chewy, gummy, or jelly-like textures in candies like gummy bears, marshmallows, and fruit snacks.

Flavour: Gelatine is flavourless, which means it does not alter the taste of confectionery.

Shelf-life: Gelatine has excellent stability and can help extend the shelf-life of confectionery products. It can prevent water migration, which can cause sweets to become sticky or hard over time.

For those who are unable to consume gelatine due to dietary restrictions or personal beliefs, such as vegans and vegetarians, Healan Ingredients provides gelatine alternatives like agar, carrageenan, or pectin as a gelatine replacement.
