Canadian-based Bartek Ingredients, specialising in malic and fumaric acid, used the recent FiEurope event to unveil its latest proprietary technology to optimise pectin-based gummy formulation, reports Neill Barston.
The hybrid show took place in Frankfurt and offered visitors the chance to see the company’s expanded platform that now includes its latest innovation : Pecmate enhancer.
Founded in 1969, the company which has its headquarters in Stoney Creek Ontario, explained its latest offering offers a notable development in gummy and soft candy formulation.
It reportedly benefits pectin-based product formulation by helping overcome many production challenges, such as controlling gelling behaviour and maintaining stable pH throughout the formulation process. Pecmate means less product loss, less production downtime, and more optimal buffering than other commonly used buffer systems such as sodium citrate. This new ingredient provides gummies and soft candies with better consistency, clean release from moulds, and candies that hold their shape.
With Pecmate, Bartek reinforces its commitment to help confectionery and VMS brands lower production costs and capitalise on current consumer trends with ease. With a network of global distributors and a supply chain serving more than 40 countries, the company pairs high quality and service with a commitment to serving the global industry.
