Because of its superior performance, Acacia (also known as Gum Arabic) has historically been the gold standard in panned candies and chewing gum.

While it is one of the world’s most universally used gums, it is also one of the most difficult to source. These challenges prompted the development of the TicaPAN Coating System, which offers food manufacturers low-cost, non-gum arabic based systems that exhibit the same or even superior functionality. This innovative solution is used for binding and strengthening the sugar and sugar-alcohol shells in panned confections and for enrobing nuts, malt balls, chocolate candies, and other oil-containing centers.
