Applications - Confectionery
From gummy bears and marshmallows to hard-boiled and chewable sweets, Healan Ingredients’ gelatine (and gelatine alternative) products 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, alginates, carrageenan 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 in itself flavourless, which means it does not alter the taste of confectionery, making it an ideal ingredient for adding texture without changing the flavour profile.
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.
Versatility and Nutrition: Gelatine can be used in a variety of confectionery products, including sweets, mousses, and desserts. It can be flavoured and coloured to create a wide range of textures and tastes. It is made from animal collagen, which is rich in protein and contains important amino acids. It is also low in fat and calories.
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.
