Drying Guide

M2M Gummies Drying Header .jpg

Gummy curing (drying) is a critical step in the gummy production process. It is of great importance to dry your

finished gummies to the target moisture level to ensure their optimal texture and stability. A temperature humidity guage is required to monitor your drying condition. We highly recommend using a dehumidifier to achieve controlled relative humidity of your drying room, with temperature not exceeding 80ºF. A water activity meter is ideal but optional, if one wishes to precisely control the final relative humidity (water activity) of the finished product.
