Speciality ingredients for the production of sweets

Norevo sources speciality ingredients for the production of confectionery products ranging from sugar and chocolate-coated sweets, to gums, jellies, chewy toffees and compound-coated dragées.

Norevo’s ingredients provide an optimised stability and texture for pan-coated sugar products and chocolate dragées, creating a long-lasting glaze on hard or soft coatings.

The company’s polishing, anti-sticking and releasing agents are suitable for extruded gums and jellies, while gelatine-free texturisers offer an optimised consistency to toffees.

In addition, its natural adhesives are used for the production of spice-coated nuts and snacks.

Norevo also develops releasing agents to prevent materials from sticking to equipment surfaces, conveyor belts and product moulds.

Functional ingredients for confectionery manufacturing

Norevo’s Confectionery Performers range stabilises, glazes, whitens and seals a wide variety of pan-coated products.

These functional ingredients have a number of benefits, including creating a chewy texture in toffees without the use of animal gelatine and acting as anti-sticking agents for gums and jellies. They also prevent any kind of water or oil migration in confectionery products, as migration destroys the product surface.

Developed and prepared in-house, the Confectionery Performers are Kosher and Halal certified.

Norevo’s Confectionery Performers include:

  • Glazing agents Quick Shine, Quick Sol and Quick Gloss for pan-coated chocolate products
  • Glazing agent Quick Glanz for sugar-coated dragées
  • Anti-sticking agent Quick Oil for mogul or extruded gums and jellies
  • Sour coating Quick Acid for flavouring jellies
  • Pre-coating and gumming agent Quick Coat for the pre-treatment, standardisation and stabilisation of pan-coated products
  • Coating agent Quick Shell 37 for quickly forming stable coating shells
  • Whitening agent Quick White for hard sugar-coated products
  • Effect coatings Quick Sour for developing a sour taste, Quick Flash to create a salty taste and Quick Pearl for forming a pearlescent effect on the surface of pan-coated products
  • Sealing agent Quick Lac to protect sugar and chocolate-coated goods from environmental conditions such as humidity, dust and temperature
  • Texturisers Quick Chew and Quick Mix to achieve a customised chewy texture in toffees for uncooked chewy candies
  • Adhesive and polishing powder Quick Coll for increasing adhesiveness of spices on nuts, minimising rub-off and flavour loss
