SiMoGel eliminates the need for starch-based gummy production.
Rousselot (Irving, TX), a brand of Darling Ingredients, announced a new U.S. patent (No. 11,490,634) for intellectual property around the company’s SiMoGel gelatin technology. SiMoGel is said to eliminate the need for starch-based gummy production.
“SiMoGel allows for the production of nutraceutical gummies using silicon or metal molds, which are easily cleanable and eliminate dust during production, unlike traditional starch trays,” the company explained in a press release. “SiMoGel also significantly reduces setting time to less than 30 minutes, compared to 24 hours for conventional starch-based production.”
SiMoGel also gained a patent from the European Patent Office in November 2021 covering all major European countries, the company said.
