Confectionery Technology at Interpack 2017
Baker Perkins will emphasise why depositing is growing in popularity in the confectionery and healthcare industries at Interpack (Hall 4, Stand C21). High levels of accuracy and hygiene are combined with low production costs and an ability to make products that are unachievable with other methods.
These attributes make depositing attractive across the hard candy, lollipop, standard and 3D jelly, gum, toffee, caramel, fudge and fondant sectors. The accuracy, hygiene and efficiency of depositing also make it uniquely suitable for medicated and healthcare products.
Exhibits at Interpack will include:
- The NEW ServoForm™ Mini small-batch depositor for hard and soft confectionery
- NEW opportunities for Functional and Healthcare confectionery
- A working demonstration of Baker Perkins’ NEW stick placing technology for flat lollipops
- Cooking systems for every type of hard and soft confectionery
NEW - ServoForm™ Mini Small-Batch Depositor
The ServoForm™ Mini is a flexible depositing system for small batch production which can make a wide range of hard candy, soft candy and lollipops.
It offers outputs up to 54kg/hr (120 lb/hour) and brings the benefits of depositing - high quality, high efficiency and versatility - to companies producing confectionery in small batches, including those needing to make a variety of products on one line.
NEW - Opportunities for Functional and Healthcare Confectionery
The characteristics of depositing, which enable validation, makes this the only viable process for the growing variety of functional and healthcare confectionery carrying over-the-counter medications and dietary products typically fortified with vitamins, minerals, fibre or real fruit juices.
Any product that claims a functional benefit must have the active ingredients present in the quantities claimed. This requires the active ingredient to be accurately dosed; that it suffers minimal heat or mechanical degradation, and that the finished portions are precisely controlled.
Furthermore, the appearance and organoleptic properties of the product have to be high quality to provide reassurance and justify the price. This all has to happen in a process that is reproducible, hygienic and capable of validation: depositing meets all these requirements.
Compared to conventional methods such as die forming, starch mogul or cut-and-wrap, depositing provides a high quality, smooth product with accurate weight, size and shape characteristics. The process offers rapid payback through minimal scrap, low production costs and hygienic operation.
Simplicity of operation, flexibility and rapid changeover are major benefits. Control of the depositing process is fully automatic with recipe storage and recall enabling the depositor to be set up at the touch of a button.
NEW - Automated High Capacity Lollipop Depositing Technology
Baker Perkins has developed a family of products for the lollipop sector – the latest addition is the soft-centred double-ball lollipop.
The main types are the classic ball lollipop, and flat lollipops in a variety of shapes.
By varying the colours, flavours, patterns, fillings and textures within these shapes it is possible to create an unending flow of new product ideas to stimulate and sustain the interest of consumers.
