We produce a variety of gummies to meet our customers’ needs,
including functional gummies, fruit juice gummies,
sugar-coated gummies, and center-filled gummies.
- *Appearance may vary depending on the gummy type and whether or not it has an original mold.
- *Gummies sold on the commercial market contain around 40 to 50g per bag. When manufacturing in the smallest lot size, 200kg, around 4,000 to 5,000 bags will be produced.

*Depends on difficulty and size.
- *Our company produces gummies by first shooting gummy filling through an injection nozzle into a starch mold (flattened corn starch) that has been pressed and shaped, and then drying it.
- *Since it is difficult to create 3D-style gummies when filling into starch molds, the filled side will be flat.
- *If using specially manufactured molds, it may be necessary to use a special nozzle to match its shape when filling. In such cases, a separate fee of ￥1,200,000 or more will be charged.
It is possible to cut back on costs by using our company’s all-purpose molds.
|Flow||We move forward by first checking specifications, then formulating the mixture, and finally by making the prototype,
all while holding several briefings to keep everyone on the same page.
|Cost||￥50,000 per order (tax not included)
*Please check operation details.
|Days, Quantity||About 4 to 6 weeks (1type)
We can send an estimated 30 to 100gs of prototype product per trial.
*Differs depending on gummy grain weight.
This is a confirmation test that uses the actual full production line to check whether mass production is possible.
|Quantity||Production is made in the minimum lot (200 kg).|
|Cost||We will make new estimates as we move forward with meetings and negotiations.|

We also accept orders for final processing (packaging) and packaging preparation.
Gummies’ primary ingredients include glucose syrup, sugar, gelatin, processed starch products, acidulants, flavoring, coloring, emulsifiers, and polishing agents.
- used for adding sourness. Also mixed in to stabilize gummy quality.
- used to add taste. It’s also possible to adjust strength of flavor.
- natural coloring agents are used. Coloring may fade when exposed to fluorescent light or sunlight for extended periods of time.
*We recommend using aluminum packaging or packaging with an evaporated aluminum coating to keep out light.
- used primarily as a defoaming agent.
- Polishing agents
- used to prevent gummies from sticking to one another after leaving the starch mold.*We also use oblaat, a thin edible layer of starch, to help prevent sticking.
In order to boost the originality of the product, we can also have customers supply ingredients to be used as additives in the gummies.*All ingredients supplied must clear food sanitation standards with regard to general bacteria numbers, coliform group bacteria, mold, yeast, and so on.
|Fruit Juice||We can also add clear, concentrated fruit juices. While there are no fixed Brix standards, we recommend raising Brix to 50 – 60 if you want to include many things in the mixture.|
|Powdered Ingredients||Only powdered ingredients which dissolve in water can be used.
Mixture volume will change depending on how much can be dissolved in water. Also, as a size standard, we only use ingredients which can pass through size 40 mesh, but some ingredients which meet this standard may still have black dots or be mistaken for foreign objects. For this reason, we will first verify whether the powdered ingredient can be used and then contact the customer with the results.
|Ingredients that cannot be
added to mixture
Ingredients cannot be used if they contain substances that may hinder gummies from congealing, spread color to the line, or contaminate other products.
Gummies gradually turn brown over time by nature of gelatin’s composition.
Also, many commonly used natural colorants fade and change colors due to heat. Red, purple, and blue pigments are especially prone to show drastic changes in color. (Yellows and oranges, on the other hand, are comparatively resistant to change.)
The truth is that it’s impossible to prevent fading and discoloration entirely, even when using heat and light resistant natural coloring agents.
We consider some degree of discoloration and fading to be acceptable, but will deem a material unfit for production if discoloration or fading is severe.
