In the production of ice cream, edible gelatin as a stabilizer can prevent the formation of coarse ice crystal. But also can reduce the melting rate of ice cream. Coupled with the emulsification and freezing effect of edible gelatin. Make the ice cream soft and smooth, taste fine. So we can using edible  gelatin to make candy.
