In this case study, Gelita explores gelatine’s multifunctional technological properties, which provide product developers with an unrivalled toolbox for current and future food applications.
Many people associate gelatine with its most "classic" application: gummy candies. And it's true: the ingredient's gelling property is arguably its best known and most important quality. Another prime gel formation example and a major application in terms of market volume, is table jelly.
Although other gelling agents are available, none of them can match the texture of table jellies and gummy candies made with gelatine. Their characteristically clear, elastic, gum-like texture can only be achieved by using this hydrocolloid.
Additionally, many consumers appreciate the smooth mouthfeel that gelatine-based gummy candies or table jellies provide. They rapidly absorb water in the mouth, gently melt at body temperature and provide ideal flavour release profiles.
