Hard panned chewing gum with crunch, jelly beans in rainbow colors, malted milk balls with shine – our favorite sweets can benefit from TIC Gums’ patent-pending TicaPAN® confection coating system.
While gum arabic (also known as gum acacia) is historically the primary hydrocolloid used in panned candies and chewing gum, it is also one of the most difficult gums to source. These challenges prompted the development of the TicaPAN coating system line of stabilizers.
