SOLUFORM PE is designed for the production of fruit gummies with high protein content, while SOLUFORM SR reduces sugar in confectionery products. Completing the line-up is VERISOL HST, which provides the industry with a science-backed solution for developing collagen-rich beauty gummies.

These solutions, and how they can help manufacturers gain a competitive advantage in the market, will be revealed in a presentation by Johanna Schmidgall, global head of application development and new product development, and Natalie Leuwer, category manager food specialties. It will take place on also on 29 Nov at the Showcase Theatre.

Visitors to the show will also get to learn about EASYSEAL, a new pharmaceutical grade soft gel gelatine that improves capsule seams and helps manufacturers to significantly reduce leakage.
