Ingredient manufacturer

carry-out validation tests of your ingredients for panned-candy manufacturing

To develop new ingredients for the industrial or artisanal candy manufacturing, you will need to outsource part of the testing, particularly those concerning panned products.

 

In 2021, Frédéric Menguy created an AP-LAB dedicated to panned confectionery. Now available onsite :

  • 5 pans with capacity of 5 to 30 kg
  • Various air handling units able to supply the needed airflow, temperature and hygrometry
  • High power gas ramp for panned-caramelized-candy
  • Additional equipment needed for ingredient implementation
  • Separate work room

Frédéric Menguy offers several solutions in order to validate ingredients for chocolate and sugar panned confectionery :

  • Ingredient implementation to substitute a raw material on an existing candy
  • New product development your ingredient included
  • Comparison with a product from a competitor. Panning tests can be conducted in perfect identical air-conditions (airflow, temperature, and hygrometry)

Ingredient manufacturer

make your own panned chocolate,
sugar or other prototype design-development

When launching new ingredients, your R&D team needs to test the ingredients by making prototypes, to test alternatives of raw materials and/or parameters. Our APP-LAB is equipped to elaborate these prototypes of dragees. It is equipped with 5 pans of capacity 5 to 30 kg and air handling units necessary for sugar and chocolate panning.

Please note that the elaboration of these confectionery prototypes can be associated to a theoretical and practical training of your team.

Ingredient manufacturer

make your own samples
of chocolate or sugar dragees

As an ingredient manufacturer for panned candy, you will need to make in order to promote your products.
Our Application Laboratory can make those samples of chocolate or sugar dragees to show potential customers or prospects at Trade-Shows.

Here are the types of confectionery samples we can make for you :

  • Sample of chocolate dragees (interiors such as dried fruit, cereal ball, panned chocolate raisins)
  • Sample of sugar dragees (interiors type dried fruit, lentils chocolate panned with sugar)
  • Sample of sugar-free dragees (maltitol, isomalt, xylitol coating, etc.)
  • Sample of combined chocolate-sugar dragees (double coating “Viennoise” type)
  • Sample of panned caramelized dried fruits

Different finishings are possible: powdery, varnished, speckled, marbled, etc.

Confectioner

do you want to manufacture pre-series
to test the market before investing?

Our Application Laboratory allows us to produce pre-series of panned confectionery, for quantities between 200 and 300 kg/day depending on the product. In order to test the market before investing in equipment, our production of panned confectionery small series can allow you to have the necessary quantity very quickly and thus minimize the risks of product start-up.

The manufacture of pre-series confectionery can also allow you to validate choices of your future packaging equipment.
