Gummies and jellies are characterized by a
firm structure with a softness and chewiness texture. The traditional shaping
technique for gummies is moulding in starch. Basically, the cooked sugar mass is cast into pre-printed
starch powder (see the below) and during this step the moulding starch take
up water and other water-soluble ingredients from the sugar mass, therefore “water-soluble
ingredients” can be found in the next batch. That means a risk of contamination.
Medicated and vitamin gummies are a growing
trend especially in Canada during the last couple of years. Due to the risk of cross-contamination, starch molds are not desirable
for pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, the additives/vitamins are not
heat stable; meaning the sugar mass should be cooled as soon as possible to
It needs to be clarified and documented, if it
possible to use a modified starch that can form and firm up very fast e.g. 30
minutes in reusable silicone molds, while maintaining desirable sensory
properties and stability during shelf life.
Develop a medicated vegan gummy formulation that can be produce
with reusable silicone molds, preferably that will set within 30 min.
