A lot of people are curious about how they’re made , when they go through a box of candy called Gummi. What people don’t realize is that making these confections of candy is a time-consuming process.

They are reproduced using an automated system. The duplicates go through a machine which produces starch, which is the basis for pans of mold made from starch powder are made. Pans made of starch are then sent on to the factories.

In the candy manufacturing plant, certain ingredients such as gelatin sugar and glucose syrup are placed in large, deep boilers which heat the ingredients and then stirred with paddles that are big continuously. As they stir, the chosen flavors and colors are added to give the candy with a distinctive look and taste. After the mixture has been heated, it is then poured into pipes, which transport the mixture to the area for production in the manufacturing facility.

The top of the pipes is a nozzle that can be used to squeeze the mix out onto starch boards, which contain molds in various models. The candy is set for 3 to 5 weeks. Once it is ready, beeswax is able to be added to the mold to give it a glimmer and make the candy easier to handle. After drying the candy is moved via a packaging machine and then removed and ready to go to candy shops in various locations.

Today, Gummi Bears, Worms and other sweets are enjoyed and loved by children all over the globe throughout the year.
