Ticagel® Natural GC-581 B is a clean label gelatin replacer for use in gelatin-free gummy candy. A usage level of 3.9% replaces 6.4% gelatin 275 Bloom, but usage range is 3.7-4.2% by weight. It is processing friendly and can be added or activated the same way as gelatin using 180°F water and activation time of 10 minutes. At depositing Brix of 78°, it has comparable viscosity as gelatin between temperatures of 203-160°F (95-70 C), and like gelatin it is best deposited at the higher end of this temperature range. Ticagel Natural GC-581 B gives a firmer gummy candy compared to gelatin but yields a decent springiness or elasticity compared to fruit slice texture.
