ADM provides a number of important products to the confectionery industry, which can be divided roughly into chocolate confectionery and sugar confectionery or sweets. Some products are a combination of the two. ADM provides the full range of cocoa butters and cocoa liquors for the development of these products.
Chocolate confectionery includes a variety of products with either chocolate or compound coating as the main ingredient. Examples are tablet/bar chocolate, molded and hollow molded items, panned and extruded products, truffles, boxed chocolate, and all sorts of decorated chocolate pieces.
ADM offers a wide variety of product characteristics like flavor, color, viscosity, fineness, melting properties and composition. Please contact your local ADM representative for a recommendation of an ADM chocolate or compound item appropriate for your application.
The chocolate confectionery industry markets a wide variety of products. But no matter the product, confectioners rely on the consistent, quality chocolate, compound coating, cocoa butter and cocoa liquor ADM provides.
Sugar confectionery, also known as sweets, includes products like toffee, hard candy, boiled sweets, marshmallow, countlines and fondants. Gums and fillings can be added to this group as well.
For most sweets, cocoa powders are used. However, chocolate and compound coatings are also widely used to either enrobe, decorate, or co-extrude products. Flow requirements depend upon the type of product and the desired color and flavor characteristics. Whether in dark, milk, or white chocolate or compound coating, ADM is capable of making an adapted offer for all your sweets applications.
ADM products for the confectionery industry include cocoa butters, cocoa liquors and chocolates such as bittersweet, milk, white and flavored.
