A problem with toffees and caramels is that they love to stick to things. Whether it is the machinery used in the manufacturing and packaging of the product or just sticking to each other.
To alleviate this problem Capol® have developed a range of anti-sticking, mold release and separating products for use in the manufacture of hard and soft caramels.
Primarily their purpose is to prevent the products from sticking to machinery thus improving processing and packing.
Known throughout the industry under the trade name of Capolex®, they are available in liquid, paste or solid form and can also be used in the bakery profession.
Capolex® products are renowned for their utmost stability and high separating effects. They facilitate trouble free production and protect machinery parts from corrosion and abrasion, as they do not contain any water, animal fats or mineral hydrocarbons.
