Gums, Jellies and Pastilles
Gums, jellies and pastilles constitute a large class of confectionery products which can be manufactured with many interesting variations. They are comparatively low boiled and contain about 20% moisture. The texture of these products, which can be firm or solid, is obtained by the use of various types of water binding gelling agents principally gum arabic, starch, gelatine, agar and pectin. After a boiled mixture of mixed sugars has been prepared it is mixed with the gelling agent and then processed into the range of shapes by depositing into starch moulds. Other methods may be used principally depositing into rubber moulds or pouring onto a slab. After forming into shapes, the confections are dried to their final moisture content and texture by stoving.
