Packaging Oiled vs Sanded GummiesGummy candies present unique challenges during the packaging process. As a leading figure in contract food packing, Econo-Pak is at the forefront of addressing these challenges, particularly when packaging oiled and sanded gummies.

Let’s peel back the curtain on the critical differences and considerations in packaging these two types of gummies, providing insights into our tailored approach and the solutions we offer.

The Sticky Situation: Oiled vs. Sanded Gummies

Gummies come in all shapes, sizes, and textures. Among these, oiled and sanded gummies represent two popular, yet distinct, finishes. Oiled gummies are coated with a thin layer of oil, giving them a glossy appearance and preventing them from sticking together.

On the flip side, sanded gummies are dusted with a fine layer of sugar or sour sugar, providing a textured finish and a burst of flavor upon the first bite.

Differences in Packaging for Oiled vs. Sanded Gummies

The characteristics in oiled versus sanded gummy finishes significantly impact the product packaging process.

Oiled Gummies Packaging

  • The glossy challenge: The oil coating, while preventing stickiness between the gummies, poses a risk of smudging and oil buildup inside the packaging material. This can affect the visual appeal and perceived freshness of the product.
  • Material matters: Choosing the right packaging material is crucial. It needs to be resistant to oil and not absorb the coating, ensuring the gummies stay fresh and appealing.
  • Sealing the deal: The sealing process for oiled gummies must ensure that the packaging is airtight to prevent the oil from seeping out, which could compromise the product’s integrity and shelf life.

Sanded Gummies Packaging

  • The sugar coating conundrum: The sugar coating, while delightful in taste and texture, can create challenges in packaging due to its tendency to shed. This can lead to a messy appearance and potential waste.
  • Keeping it clean: Packaging for sanded gummies must account for the excess sugar, ensuring it remains contained and does not detract from the product’s presentation.
  • Material selection: The packaging material should prevent moisture ingress to maintain the sugar’s texture and prevent clumping, ensuring the gummies remain fresh and enjoyable.
