Bartek Ingredients is featuring its newest proprietary technology to optimize pectin-based gummy formulation at the Food ingredients Europe trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. 

The Pecmate Pectin Enhancer is a proprietary ingredient that improves pectin-based product formulation by helping overcome many production challenges, such as controlling gelling behavior and maintaining stable pH throughout the formulation process. Pecmate means less product loss, less production downtime, and more optimal buffering than other commonly used buffer systems such as sodium citrate. 

This new ingredient provides gummies and soft candies with better consistency, clean release from molds, and candies that hold their shape. With Pecmate, Bartek reinforces its commitment to help confectionery and VMS brands lower production costs and capitalize on current consumer trends with ease.
