Technology

Gummies contain lots of moisture and hold in flavors well,
meaning that, with special processing,
they can be tailored to suit a variety of customer needs.

Sugar coating

These gummies are coated with a layer of sugar, helping prevent stickiness and deformity.

Appearance We can also achieve a bright look and feel, such as a matte or polished finish, that differs from gummies.
Flavor It’s possible to make flavors that stand apart from gummies, too.
We can add a coat of sugar to strengthen aroma and acidity and bring out more flavor in the gummy.
Texture We can add a crunchy, gritty texture unlike the normal soft chewiness of gummies.
Process Unlike gummies, temperatures never exceed 60℃ during the production process, meaning ingredients that cannot withstand high heat can also be used.
Preservability This protects gummies and increases their shelf life. (Protects gelatin, which cannot withstand high temperatures, and decreases the risk of stickiness and deformation)
Packaging By adding a layer of sugar, the surface becomes slicker and less likely to stick, helping make it more fit for packaging.

Center-filled gummies

A “center-filled” gummy is a gummy with a two-layered structure.
The shell (outer layer) has the firm texture of gelatin, while the center (inner layer) has the juicy, jelly-like texture of pectin.
Since you can enjoy two textures in one bite, the gummy makes for a luxurious, satisfying experience.

Minimum lot 320kg〜

Through the two-layered structure, you can pair together complementary flavors and bring out the best parts of each ingredient. With fruit flavors, for instance, you can achieve a gushy, juicy, pulpy sensation. Or you can bring out crisp, novel tastes with the flavors of ramune and other drinks.

The best part about center-filled gummies, however, is that the shell and center are prepared separately, then filled in simultaneously. That means it’s possible to flavor the shell and center differently. This lets you mix together delicious flavors and create a completely original taste that nobody else could come up with.
The best part about center-filled gummies, in other words, is that you can set yourself apart from other products.

Normal single-layered gummies are delicious too, of course, but it’s our center-filled gummies that really bring out originality and charm.

Aerated gummies

While still made using standard gelatin, aerated gummies are special because of their groundbreaking marshmallow-like texture that has a bit of elasticity.

This unique texture is accomplished by feeding air into the liquid gummy mixture and whipping it with a special machine. We can also change the texture by adjusting the amount of air filling the gummies.
The mixture is also important. We formulate a special blend which takes in air easily.

When air is fed and whipped into the liquid, it spreads evenly across the entire aerated gummy mixture. For this reason, the product color turns whitish, making for irresistibly cute pastel colors.

Gummy sizes do not change due to the added air, but the weight of each gummy does decrease, meaning that they have fewer calories. Hence, these gummies are perfectly suited for those who want to eat gummies but are watching their calories.

With their fluffy texture, cute colors, and low calories, these aerated gummies are sure to hit home with girls.
