Sweets are one of the most common foods to contain gelatin. This type of protein, traditionally derived from animal collagen, is used to stabilise and thicken ingredients to provide that ‘chew’ in chewy-textured confectionery. With this in mind, it is of no surprise that there has been a recent shift away from animal products in both Chocolate and sugar confectionery, as vegans, vegetarians and kosher consumers seek non gelatin alternatives. In line with this new trend and interest in plant-based or vegan confectionery, there are lots of innovations and new products which have already been launched or are in the making. Take Germany for example, where by the demand for vegan friendly sweets saw new product development growth by 252% between 2013 and 2017 - the delicious Vego range, which is made in Germany, is a fine example of this.
