Invert Sugar- (Also called Nulomoline) Invert sugar is created by combining a SUGAR SYRUP with a small amount of acid (such as CREAM OF TARTAR or lemon juice) and heating. This inverts, or breaks down, the SUCROSE into its two components,  GLUCOSE and FRUCTOSE, thereby reducing the size of the sugar crystals. Because of its fine crystal structure, invert sugar produces a smoother product and is used in making candies such as fondant, and some syrups. The process of making jams and jellies automatically produces invert sugar by combining the natural acid in the fruit with granulated sugar and heating the mixture. Homemade Marshmallow

Invertase 
Invertase, also known as beta-fructofuranosidase - Used to make smoother fondant and cordials. Mainly used in confections where fructose is preferred over sucrose because it is sweeter and does not crystallize as easily. Once the candy is manufactured, it needs at least a couple of days to a couple of weeks in storage so that the invertase can do its work. For best results keep refrigerated. Add about 1/4 teas. per pound of fondant center #76-6501

ISOMALT - a natural sugar substitute, a type of sugar alcohol, which is primarily used for its sugar-like physical properties  - the only sugar replacer made from pure sugar beet that tastes as naturally sweet as sugar. In a ratio of 1:1 ISOMALT can replace sugar in confectionery and food to obtain a low in calories, low glycemic or toothfriendly product. Technological advantages such as low hygroscopicity enable to produce non-sticky candies. Products made with isomalt have the same texture and appearance as those made with sugar. Ideal for creating "Emerald" effect jewels. Isomalt has been developed for use in sugar sculpture and pulled sugar decorations. Bride using isomalt crystals - poured into our cookie cutter #RM1034

 CakePlay Isomalt Nibs
CakePlay’s convenient pre-cooked Isomalt Sticks let you start decorating in just a few minutes. Simply melt the number of isomalt sticks you need in the microwave, and you’re ready to go! No stress and no mess. We’ve taken away the hassle of working with traditional isomalt to make any decorating project a piece of cake! CakePlay’s pre-cooked isomalt sticks are made with the highest-purity isomalt available. The color and clarity of this isomalt remains true during melting and application. And with CakePlay’s convenient packaging, there’s little to no waste. Simply use the amount of isomalt sticks you need. If you melt a bit too much isomalt, just pour it onto a Silpat® mat, then store in an air-tight container to reuse later on another project. Unused isomalt sticks can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 2 years.
.
CakePlay’s Isomalt Sticks are better than sugar for professional cake decorating. Here’s why:
.
 • This pre-cooked isomalt melts in the microwave in just a few seconds. No cooking is required.
 • Sugar burns easily, but isomalt won’t change color when heated.
 • Sugar absorbs more water than isomalt, so it’s more hygroscopic and more difficult to use.
 • Unlike sugar, CakePlay’s isomalt resists crystallization, even after remelting. Just let it cool and you can easily use it again for a different application.
 • Isomalt is less fragile and easier to work with.
 • When properly cooked, tempered, handled and stored, isomalt is more forgiving of high-humidity conditions.

Lecithin - An oil-like extract from soybeans used to preserve, emulsify and moisturize foods. Many candy makers look for lecithin as an emulsifier in real chocolates, caramel and taffy. Combined with vegetable oils it can be used instead of high calorie oils for greasing pans and sautéing food. Also available in granular form - unflavored granules; a good source of choline, often used as a dietary supplement, thought to be beneficial for heart health, kidney function and mild memory problems associated with aging. Can be added directly to salads, yogurts, frostings, and other foods. Email us for pricing.

Potassium Sorbate - MOLD INHIBITOR - INFORMATION
A convenient mold and fermentation inhibitor, formulated to help prevent mold growth from within. This water-based preservative is ideal for all candy, fudge, desserts and pastries. Active Ingredient: Potassium Sorbate. General Use Guide: Use 2 teaspoon to 5 lb.. of total batch. NOTE: Potassium Sorbate is already in all of our ready-made candy center products.
NOTES FROM DEAN: We add the potassium sorbate to the water we use to make the fudge. We use 2 TB per 42 lb. of fudge, so it doesn't take whole bunch of it if you are making a pan or two of fudge... even if you put 2 TB for just a small pan, it won't hurt as it is odorless & tasteless.
