Our Confectionery Performers are a professional range of specialty ingredients for the production of sweets such as sugar-coated, chocolate-coated or compound-coated dragees, gums, jellies, or chewy toffees.

Our Confectionery Performers are used for stabilizing, glazing, whitening and sealing of various types of pan-coated products in which they reduce the risk of spot formation through water or oil migration on the product surface. They offer an alcohol-free alternative to shellac for sealing and polishing purposes.

They provide chewy toffees with the right texture without using animal gelatin. They act as anti-sticking agents for gums and jellies.   Our Confectionery Performers are based on natural raw materials and are available in Kosher and Halal-certified qualities; some Confectionery Performers within our range are offered in organic-certified quality.

Our professional range of Confectionery Performers are developed and produced in-house by our Contract Manufacturer with over 20 years of experience.  The Confectionery Performers provide functional ingredients for innovative product formulations.  We make sweets better!
