With candy lovers, first impressions are everything. But delivering acid-sanded confectionery that retains its exquisite, instant sourness and shelf stability in sub-optimal conditions can be a challenge. Our PURAC® powders help keep your product dry and appealing, even when heat and humidity levels are high.

You want to win consumers over with fresh, unique sour candy experiences. To do that, your product must have its original distinctive flavor and texture when it comes off the store shelf, and in some markets, that can be especially challenging.

Corbion’s PURAC® Powder range helps you create acid-sanded candies with quick-releasing, long-lasting sour flavors that maintain stability on the shelf longer, even when storage and transport conditions are less than ideal. Our lactic acid powders, PURAC® Powder 55 and PURAC® Powder 60, offer low moisture absorption to protect against stickiness, and low acid migration to prevent loss of sourness.

In more humid climates, our patented, malic acid-based PURAC® Powder MA provides extremely low hygroscopicity and greater stability, with a unique, oil-free coating specifically designed for making acid-sanded candies with a perfect acidity profile and a fresh, clean mouthfeel. 

Using our PURAC® Powders, you can create confectionery products that give consumers the intense flavor and texture sensations they’re looking for, and give you the kind of product stability that allows you to succeed even in more challenging markets. A narrow and controlled particle size distribution provides excellent powder flowability, helping to ensure the uniform distribution of sourness throughout sanding sugars with minimal dustiness.

Our PURAC® line can also help you overcome other common confectionery challenges with natural solutions that allow you to minimize sugar inversion and stickiness in hard candy, and prevent gelatin degradation in soft candy.
