There are many reasons why confectionery technology is popular, aside from the obvious. Candies, for the most part, are stable and portable, and can provide a flexible base for delivering herbs, vitamins and minerals, and even pharmaceutical ingredients in a way that is pleasingly acceptable.
However, making candy is not as simple as most people think! Because confectionery products are relatively inexpensive with short ingredient legends, it is often assumed that processing is easy, efficient, and foolproof. But the technology to produce even the most common candies can be tricky and complicated.
BLTech Topics will explore various topics of confectionery technology as they relate to our small scale process equipment. Please check back from time to time as we continue to update our discussions.
