TicaPAN® 311 is a system of hydrocolloids recommended for panning applications. TicaPAN® 311 is designed to replace gum arabic in confection applications with comparable crystallization, binding, viscosity and drying properties. It is lighter in color than gum arabic allowing for reduction or elimination of titanium dioxide.

For a Non-GMO option, TicaPAN® 311-NGMO is available.  For a stronger shell and shorter drying times, TicaPAN® Quick Crunch is available.
