Healthy fruit sweets

Easily make healthy & sugarfree candies yourself with fruit and Agaranta. Our healthy candy recipes and candy moulds are very popular, we think you will love them! Pop these candies into the lunchbox as a healthy treat! Because of the Agaranta they will not ‘melt’. In a sealed container they can be stored in the fridge for 5 days.

Add Agaranta to a cold liquid, such as pureed fruit. Heat the puree and keep stirring until it is completely dissolved, so that there are no lumps. Agaranta starts to set at room temperature, so don’t let it cool too much before pouring it into a candy mold or mixing it with other ingredients. If it has cooled down too much, you can simply heat it up again.

Why make your own candies

The appeal of a candy is usually in its shape and color. If you make candies from fruit, the figures get the most beautiful colours, they are healthy, sugarfree and very tasty! We have a large assortment of candy moulds, just choose your favorite! Does your child have a food allergy? If you make candies yourself, you can be sure that it does not contain ingredients that your child cannot tolerate.

Agaranta

You need a binder to give the candies shape and structure. We make our candies with Agaranta. Agaranta replaces gelatin and agar agar. Gelatin is not vegetarian, it binds less strongly and you need more of it in proportion. Agar agar also has a less strong binding power, but it is vegetable and vegetarian. Candies made from agar agar can only be kept in the refrigerator, they will ‘melt’ outside the refrigerator.

Healthy sweets binder Biovegan AgarantaAgaranta has a stronger binding effect than gelatin and agar agar. Agaranta comes from seaweed, combined with arrowroot. Arrowroot is a high-quality starch from the rhizome of the tropical plant Arrowroot. Arrowroot has the same binding power as cornstarch or potato starch. It is vegetable, tasteless and contains no fat, making it very easy to digest. The combination of these two ingredients results in a smooth and firm consistency.

The ratio of Agaranta and gelatin is: 6 grams of Agaranta is equal to 6 gelatin sheets.

Foodsafe silicone molds

All our candy moulds are made from 100% foodgrade silicone. This is a completely foodsafe and hypoallergenic material. It is harmless to humans and the environment.
