Confectionery

Gums and jellies

Gums and jellies traditionally rely on gelatine as the gelling agent. But deliveries can be unreliable and prices often fluctuate – usually upwards.

Gelamyl potato starches from KMC are the ideal alternative – with no worries about supply bottlenecks or price bumps.

Pressure from price fluctuations

Gums and jellies are manufactured in a multitude of forms, all over the world. Most are basically a soft-boiled product made from water, sugar and a gelling agent. That gelling agent is usually – and traditionally – gelatine.

Unfortunately, it can sometimes be hard to source reliable supplies of gelatine and prices tend to fluctuate unexpectedly – usually upwards. This increases your manufacturing costs for any products consisting of gums and jellies.
