    For developing a good stable gummy , it is mandatory to look after the parameters concerning it’s texture. Gummy texture is constructed by the colloidal base , specially in formulating gelatin gummies.

    However, some ingredients might compromise the base structure. To rule out cross-linking from affecting the gummy’s texture, more gelling agent is added to sustain the bond’s strength. Gelatin, which is a hydrocolloid, very popular amongst people can be employed for formulating a gummy matrix. Though it’s thermolabile nature can pose problems, formulators can add pectin along with gelatin to solve this issue.

    Incorporating micro-sized particles of nutrients can let go of any grittiness and also prevent nutrient loading issues.
