Mouthwateringly Good: Novel Confectionery with a 2-in-1 Effect

Jan 19, 2017

What begins as a piece of chewy candy turns into chewing gum after a short time – with CANDY2GUM®, WACKER is launching a completely new confectionery manufacturing technology onto the market. Since this innovative product is made in a boiling process, manufacturers can now add water-based, fat-containing and natural ingredients, such as fruit juice, cocoa and coffee. This opens up entirely new prospects for the sugar confectionery industry – and allows for novel sweets with a 2-in-1 effect.
