An ingredient the confectionery industry cannot do without

Gelatin has been used in the food industry for hundreds of years. Today, gelatin is without doubt an inescapable ingredient, used to define the perfect texture in a range of confectionery and other food products.

  • Marshmallows
  • Toffees, chewy candy

Its thermo-reversibility is unique and essential in a vast range of confectionery applications, but its popularity is also attributable to its gelling, foaming, stabilizing, texturizing, binding and emulsifying functionalities. 
Gelatin is water-soluble, totally digestible and compatible with most other hydrocolloids, including vegetable colloids such as agar-agar, alginates, carrageenans and pectins, as well as sugars, corn syrups, edible acids and flavours – all popular within the confectionery sector.
