Bartek highlights pectin gummy innovations at Food ingredients Europe

Pecmate™ helps overcome the production challenges of pectin-based gummy formulation

Bartek Ingredients, the global leader in malic and fumaric acid, is featuring its newest proprietary technology to optimize pectin-based gummy formulation at the Food ingredients Europe trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.

This year’s event is both online and in person. The hybrid event provides Bartek an expanded platform to make more connections in the food and beverage ingredients industry to discuss its decades of experience producing malic and fumaric acid, as well as its newest innovation: Pecmate™ Pectin Enhancer.

Pecmate™ is an exciting advancement in gummy and soft candy formulation. This proprietary ingredient improves pectin-based product formulation by helping overcome many production challenges, such as controlling gelling behavior and maintaining stable pH throughout the formulation process. Pecmate™ means less product loss, less production downtime, and more optimal buffering than other commonly used buffer systems such as sodium citrate.

This new ingredient provides gummies and soft candies with better consistency, clean release from molds, and candies that hold their shape. With Pecmate™, Bartek reinforces its commitment to help confectionery and VMS brands lower production costs and capitalize on current consumer trends with ease.

With a network of global distributors and a supply chain serving more than 40 countries, Bartek pairs high quality and service with a steadfast commitment to doing whatever it takes to service the global market as the world’s largest malic and fumaric acid producer.

Bartek looks forward to speaking with everyone at Fi Europe both online and in person. The online portion of the event starts Nov. 22, and the in-person portion starts Nov. 30 in Frankfurt, Germany—both run until Dec. 2.

Attendees can visit Bartek’s stand (31D20) to discuss how Pecmate™ and malic and fumaric acid can assist in product innovations or reformulation. For more information, please contact at
