The role of gelatin to make gummy bears

Gelatin can be widely used in the confectionery industry. Here is the role of gelatin to make gummy bears.

First, mix your gelatin and water. You can mingle them together with a whisk. Or, like a traditional candy maker, mix in a water bath. If you use a whisk to mix, put the water and gelatin directly in the pot. Heat on low heat until the gelatin is dissolved. The role of gelatin here is emulsification.

Make a water bath. Heat a large bowl of water to make it hot, but not boiling. Mix 70 ounces (2000 grams) of gelatin and 140 milliliters (0.59c) of water in a sealed bag and let it sit in a water bath for 30 minutes. After being thoroughly mixed, there should be no lumps or streaks in the bag. Here the role of gelatin is thicken.

Mix your sugar, sorbitol, and glucose syrup over medium heat on the stove. Stir the ingredients well to mix properly, but not boiling or bubbling. If you have a candy thermometer, let them reach 150°F (66°C).

Slowly mix in your gelatin mixture. With heating, the previous mixture of gelatin and water is mixed together. Stir until completely mixed, then turn off the heat and quickly proceed to the next step.

Add the condiments you want. You can season the gelatin with fruit juice, flavoring acids (such as citric acid or tartaric acid), or flavoring oils or extracts.
