What Happens in a Vacuum Oven: Gummy Bears

by | Nov 14, 2017 | Latest News, Vacuum Ovens, Vacuum Pumps

Our Ai AccuTemp vacuum ovens are perfect for making wax, shatter, and crumble, but what else can they do? This week, we’re testing what happens to gummy bears under vacuum. Will they expand or shrink? Let’s find out!

Test #2: Gummy bears under vacuum

Explanation

As it turns out, gummy bears do not have much of a reaction under vacuum. Well, not unless heat is added! Once we had our AccuTemp vacuum oven running some heat, the fun began. As the sugar, starch, citric acid, and gelatin began to break down, we saw big changes taking place.

By carefully adjusting the vacuum levels, we could manipulate the texture of the gummy bear. This was done much in the same way that extraction artists are able to manipulate cannabis concentrates into wax, shatter, crumble, etcetera. All it takes is some trial and error! 😉
