Liquorice is one of the most popular forms of confectionery
The unmistakable taste of liquorice is based on Glycyrrhiza glabra root extract.
Extruded liquorice is manufactured by processing the ingredients into a thick mass before adding salmiac or other flavourings. This liquorice mass is then processed into the liquorice laces we all know by pressing the liquorice mass under pressure through an extruder.
The liquorice laces are then briefly fed through a dipping bath filled with an anti-sticking agent.
The active ingredients in Capol® anti-sticking agents form a fine coating around the laces, giving the finished product a mouth-watering glaze with ideal protection against sticking together and prolonging the product's shelf life.
