Recent global estimates show that the worldwide prevalence of obesity more than doubled between 1980 and 2014. To contain the issue of overweight/obesity, health programmes directed at weight management over the years have consistently placed the spotlight on the importance of dietary control among consumers.

Beneo has designed a new Isomalt translucent gum coating technology, which utilises a sugar replacer that crystallises translucently.
The translucent quality the coating possesses enables gum manufacturers to produce multi-coloured gum centres to be coated in a crunchy and translucent way. The colours, as well as added print and sparkle effects are now available, due to the coating technology.
Gum that is coated with the translucent product has both crunch and good flavour release, and also prevents any chipping or cracking during production.
