Machine for winegum

Limitech A/S Hall: Hall 8 Stand: D8-46
Machine for winegum Wine gums originated from the United Kingdom and it is not more than 100 years ago we first were introduced to the delicious bites of the type English wine gums. However, despite what the name might tell you, there are no wine to be found in wine gums. Short history about winegums The journey of the wine gum started in 1880 where the English man Charles Riley Maynard started his confectionary business along with his brother Tom. However, it was not until 1909 that the Maynard’s wine gums were introduced by Maynard’s son Charles Gordon Maynard. The story goes, that Maynard Senior was close to fire his son from the business in the period of inventing the wine gums. Maynard Senior and Junior were having disputes over the invention of the delicious gum. Because, it took a long time to persuade Maynard senior who was a highly conservative Christian that there were no wine to be found in their produced wine gums, despite from the quite misleading name. Why the popular jellies were given wine gums is hard to say and a bit of a mystery. However, two strong theories have come to light, one being an attempt to lure people away from alcohol and the other being the texture of these gums making them superior to other confectionaries allowing you to savor them like a fine wine. Why choose process equipment from Limitech Winegum’s structure and texture requires high shear mixing and agitation which is functions Limitech’s machinery is developed for. Limitech’s LiMiX 1 machine is a machine equipped and developed to example the process of winegum.
