Ingredients firm Mantrose-Haeuser has launched its Certicoat antisticking polish and glazing agent in Europe after success in the US and has also developed an organic variety.

Lee Hyde, director at Mantrose, said “Certicoat 360 is used widely by the US confectionery industry as an antisticking polish and glazing agent and is now being introduced in Europe and other markets.”

Antistick ‘critical’

The ingredient is used to produce a gloss and to prevent gelatin gums from sticking together, which Hyde said was more than just a mild inconvenience to consumers.

“The control of surface sticking and scuffing through coating system design is critical in a number of major sectors of the industry including starch, pectin and gelatin gummies or wine gums. “

Organic version and powder launch

Mantrose has also developed an organic version for fruit snacks and gummies.

“Products including Certicoat 590 ORG have been designed to allow our customers to capitalize on new consumer trends, in this case the growing demand for organic certified gummies and wine gum products,”​ said Hyde.  

The firm has also launched a new fine particle size powder blend of natural waxes called Crystalac 420. The powder blend is designed to give a shine to hard sugar shell confections such as chewing gum balls.

Lee Hyde said the powder provided faster development of gloss during processing, but gave no further details.
