CONFECTIONERY

Our AraTAs® range of confectionery coatings are used to improve the appearance of the confectionery over the shelf-life of the product. They also help to facilitate the production and processes involved.

Chocolate Dragee Polishing

AraTAs® Polishing Systems

Our confectionery polishing systems for chocolate and sugar confectionery applications create an excellent shine and finish. There are versions specifically adapted for polishing chocolate and yoghurt coated centres. We offer standard dark and white solutions, dependent on the requirement for either dark, white or milk chocolate coatings.

AraTAs® Pre-Polish

An aqueous pre-polish to assist in sealing and smoothing the confectionery surface. A useful barrier for compound coatings containing cocoa butter substitutes and suitable for applications where the chocolate has not had sufficient time to fully solidify prior to polishing.

AraTAs® Polishes

Aqueous solutions of natural food ingredients for polishing chocolate and yoghurt-coated centres.

AraTAs® Varnish

Our range of varnishes seal the surface of the confectionery creating a barrier to high humidity and increases in temperature.

Liquorice and Wine Gums

AraTAs® Liquorice and Wine Gum Oils

Our range of Liquorice and Wine Gum Oils are based on beeswax and carnauba wax suspended in vegetable oils and are suitable for producing pectin, gelatine and starch based gums and pastilles. We also produce specialist anti-sticking agents for extruded and moulded liquorice products.

Sugar Dragees

AraTAs® Sugar Polishes

Aqueous and alcohol-based solutions for polishing hard and soft sugar coated confections. AraTAs® Sugar Polishes are produced in a similar manner to AraTAs® chocolate polishing products and have been specifically developed to achieve a smooth surface in order to aid the polishing process. Developing a deep and long lasting shine.

Boiled Sweets and Toffee

AraTAs® Anti-sticking and Release Agents

Anti-sticking and Release Agents are designed to offer improved stability, and also significant separation effects in many types of candy products including high boiling, filled products, pulled centres and toffees, caramels and fudges. They are effective aids for the smooth transition of confectionery processes such as:-

  • Cooling and conveyor belts
  • Cooling rollers
  • Cooling and heating tables
  • Embossing machines
  • Cutting knives
  • Batch rollers/formers
  • Batch cookers

Zein

AraTAs® Vegan Varnishes

To complement our polishing systems we now offer zein based varnishes and products. Zein offers a clean label replacement for shellac and can be used for coating, encapsulation, creating an enteric barrier, timed release and increased shelf-life. As an all-natural corn protein film, zein will preserve the flavour, freshness and colour, act as moisture, oxygen and microbial barrier and perform as a natural adhesive to attach salt or flavours.
