Food Quality Requirements for the Sweets and Confectionery Industry

Quality Characteristics of Sweets and Confectionery Products

Getting a product with an evenly distributed filling or with all the components present is just one of the challenges food manufacturers of the sweets and confectionery sector face every day. It could be a box of chocolates with missing products or an ice cream with poorly distributed variegation. 

Therefore, it is essential to ensure the quality of products, eliminating those that are defective, damaged, or deformed, and verifying the correct dosage of ingredients. This attention translates into improved consumer satisfaction and savings on processing materials and number of products in a package.

Foreign Bodies in Sweets and Confectionery Products

Foreign bodies can in fact alter the mixture of ingredients or the materials with which foods of the sweets and confectionery sector are produced. Some of the most common include metal, glass, wood, or stone fragments.
