Coated acids

With our CAPOLAN® product range, we offer the perfect ingredient for sour, sugar-coated gums. The organic acids are coated with a non-reactive fat layer which prevents unwanted chemical interactions.

Coated acids

Intense sour taste and easy use

Sour and tangy on the outside, fruity and sweet on the inside? We create the typically sour taste on the surface of the confectionery your customers love. Our CAPOLAN® product range consisting of coated acids adds the subtly tart flavors of malic acid, tartaric acid and citric acid to gums and licorice of all kinds. Encasing the acids in fat prevents them from reacting with other ingredients in the gum products.

CAPOLAN® is easy to handle and can be mixed directly with sugar. The mixture can be easily applied to the slightly heated or moistened surface of the gums in a sprinkling drum. The fat coating on the acids significantly reduces the amount of dust in the production environment.

From sour strings and ribbons to sour gummy bears and sticks, we are happy to advise you on the right acid profile for your product and how to use CAPOLAN®. Malic, citric and tartaric acid add that extra something to sweet and sour gum products and licorice. Looking for a salty sour taste for the surface of your confectionery? We offer ammonium chloride in a fat-encapsulated form.
