Details of the Innovation Need

Background: the growing incidence of diabetes and obesity diseases is one of the key challenges for global healthcare. Excessive sugar consumption is proved to be the main reason for these tendencies. Reducing the sucrose content and finding its substitutes have been important issues for food and beverage companies for many decades.

Jelly candy is a jelly of chewing consistency, the mass fraction of moisture in which is not more than 22% of the total confectionery product mass. The content of sugary substances in the recipe of chewing jelly candy is about 75% (sugar - 50%, glucose syrup / molasses / 50%). In addition to the function of sweetness, sugar in jelly candy also affects the pectin jelly-formation process, and determines the structure of jelly candy and its shelf life.

Therefore, the main task today is to find an ingredient to replace sugar as a structure-forming agent and filler and to develop a finished product based on it, which can be produced in an industrial scale. At the same time, this ingredient or a complex of ingredients should be close to sugar in cost or be cheaper. Sweetness in jelly candy is supposed to be created by natural high-intensity sweeteners (stevia, sweet proteins, etc.), which must be added in fairly small quantities due to their high sweetness.
