Some consumers prefer the strong taste of traditional liquorice and others may be excited by just a faint touch of a new trendy flavour. Some fancy a soft, elastic texture while others prefer a chewy or firm pastille-like texture.

Like in other food segments, the free from trend is also expanding into liquorice. More and more consumers now request gluten free liquorice without the commonly used wheat flour.

For the production of moulded liquorice, KMC suggests the use of potato-based starch solutions as your basic gelling agent. The broad KMC Gelamyl range offers solutions for any texture you may wish to achieve in your liquorice candy.

As our Gelamyl solutions are made from potatoes, they support the popular claims from today’s modern consumers requesting free-from solutions such as:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten free
  • Non GMO
