Challenges in production

Challenges in production

The realization of "next-generation gummies" requires special know-how in terms of both production technology and formulations: Production must take place under strictly hygienic conditions, and various legal requirements must be observed. The ingredients must be incorporated into the compound extremely gently and precisely metered. At the same time, they must not impair either the visual or the taste quality of the end product. When switching to other products, contamination with other active ingredients must also be prevented at all costs.

Starchless production -

clean and hygienic

A customized, starchless production process was established for the manufacture of these new fruit gummy varieties. This prevents cross-contamination of the various active ingredients and offers the necessary flexibility for rapid product changes and the manufacture of smaller production batches. Starch molds are replaced by silicone or polycarbonate molds. This requires specially adapted gelatin grades. Alternative gelling agents often have some disadvantages that negatively affect the result. Gelatin offers high compatibility with active ingredients and controllable release profiles, while formulations can be developed very easily, e.g. for pH and dry matter adjustments. With CONFIXX™, GELITA presents an innovative gelatin specifically tailored to the starchless process.

Gelatin – because texture matters

Gelatin – because texture matters

Taste and texture is a non-negotiable criterion when it comes to food and dietary supplements like gummies. Consumer research and surveys consistently show, that the texture and melt-in-the-mouth feeling created with gelatin in gummy formulations, is what consumers prefer and love. This typical characteristic cannot be achieved with any other gelling agent.
