INTRODUCTION Sugar Confectionery

Staff training is a vital issue and a long term investment for each company. The ZDS College in Germany, Solingen is specialized in the full-time training for personnel of the chocolate and confectionery industry, both from Europe and overseas. We set highest standards in the theoretical and practical courses, training students on modern process plants and machinery to produce on small and large scale equipment a comprehensive range of products.

Description of the course:

This course will survey the technologies and raw materials involved in the production of the following products in theory and practice:

 * High boiled sweets (die-formed and deposited)
 * Toffees, fudges and soft chews
 * Gums and jellies
 * Sugar free and sugar reduced products

The functions of the ingredients as well as the involved recipes and production techniques will be discussed in detail.
The production of all these products will be demonstrated on industrial and small scaled lines. Participants will produce sweets in group work.

Who shall participate?

This course is intended for:

* Food technologists from the confectionery industry, who are working in R&D, production or quality assurance, and who are relatively new to the industry
