CAPIVA®

The brand CAPIVA® stands for innovative, outstanding chewing gum applications. Our CAPIVA® products range from CAPIVA® C 03, a ready-to-use premix for novel applications in chewing gum, to CAPIVA® S, solid resins for gum base to enhance the manufacture of gum base. The CAPIVA® product line complements our broad range of polyvinyl acetate solid resins for manufacturing gum base, marketed under the VINNAPAS® brand to the chewing gum industry for more than 60 years.

Chewing gum is confectionery made by an extrusion process. As a result, the shapes available on the market have not significantly changed in recent decades. CAPIVA® C 03 is a ready-to-use premix to deposit chewing gum. Using this technology, it is possible to make an unprecedented variety of shapes. Plus, it is relatively easy to clean the equipment, since CAPIVA® C 03 can be removed by just using hot water or a 1% alkaline solution.

Benefits:

  • Suitable for starch powder, silicone and plastic molds
  • Endless variety of shapes
  • Equipment can be easily cleaned
  • Ready-to-use premix for ease of manufacture
  • Manufacturing based on standard candy-cooking process
  • Compatible with conventional candy processes and equipment, such as mogul lines
  • Existing regulations for chewing gum and gum base apply

Applications:

  • Chewing gum

Production process of chewing gum with CAPIVA® C 03

Conventional chewing gum is made in a dry kneading process. Water-based and fat-containing ingredients, such as fruit juice and cocoa, are exactly what the traditional kneading process cannot handle. With CAPIVA® C 03 and CANDY2GUM® technology it is possible to produce chewing gum by using standard candy-confectionery cookers. Since the product is made in a simple boiling process, natural ingredients can be added, such as fruit juice, coffee, cocoa, caramel and milk. The end products' mouthfeel changes from chewy candy to chewing gum after a short time in the mouth.

Benefits:

  • Simple implementation through ready-to-use CAPIVA® C 03 premix
  • Manufacturing based on standard candy-cooking process and equipment
  • Compatible with sugar and sugar-free systems
  • Use of water-based, fat-based and natural ingredients that cannot be used for conventional chewing gum
  • Texture change from chewy candy into chewing gum
  • Stability of final products is comparable to conventional chewy candy
  • Existing regulations for chewing gum and gum base can be applied

Applications:

  • Chewing gum

Manufacturing process of gum base without and with CAPIVA® S

CAPIVA® S products are novel solid polyvinyl acetate resins that simplify gum-base manufacturing while at the same time improving performance.

Benefits:

  • Enables the replacement of elastomers and rosins in gum base
  • Reduces complexity and increases the efficiency of gum-base production
  • Enhances flavor release and reduces off-taste
  • Reduces stickiness during processing and in the final chewing gum
  • Is already approved in North America, EMEA and many APAC countries including China

Applications:

  • Gum base

CAPIVA® 3D is a unique product formulation specifically for printable gum. WACKER's experts have developed and optimized the software and hardware for this sophisticated food matrix. As a result, chewing gum can be formed in many, completely novel shapes. The new technology prints gum in a wide range of colors, shapes and flavors, and individually personalized.
