I would appreciate it greatly if anyone could answer all or some of my questions.I have searched past topics but I need specific points answering...Regards in advance
I had a business idea a couple of years ago whilst sitting bored at my desk at work. The basis of the idea was a natural, traditional throat and cough remedy that tasted nice and had ingriedients that had some scientific basis as to their "healing" powers. I need to take on the large pharmaceutical companies with a hand made anti bacterial candy
Now there are many pastilles,hard candies,jellies and other confectioneries that help relieve symptoms.
To cut a long story short I did a lot of research and tasting and came up with philosophy for the product and a list of ingriedients that were beneficial.
I decided on a pastille/ pate de fruit style jelly sweet, but I wanted a pure honey liquid centre.
As I mentioned I needed it to be natural,so all non natural flavours,colours, sweetners were out
I also needed it to be vegetarian
My current list of possible ingriedients for the prototype is as follows..
Pectin- Natural demulcent and natural gelling agent
agar agar- to add a little more firmness to the jelly pastille
lemon juice- main flavour, amalfi or sicilian?
citric acid- to add a zing and to produce saliva
liquid honey- for the centre
powdered/crystalised honey - to coat the jelly
any tips, recipes, additions, changes would be greatly welcomed...Any ideas on how to make the centre liquid?
