  1. 1. Investigation of the impact of different sugar compositions on the moisture absorption of hard candy when exposed to a humid environment

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Gila van den Eijnde; [2023]
    Keywords : Hard candy; Sugar composition; Hygroscopicity; Moisture absorption; Shelf life; Product stability; Food technology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hard candy is hygroscopic, implying that hard candy readily absorbs moisture from the environment, resulting in adverse changes in the texture and appearance of the candy. This thesis investigates the impact of different sugar compositions on the moisture absorption of hard candy when exposed to a humid environment. READ MORE
