Sugars and Gelling Agents
These are usually added to another mass in order to change the characteristics or behaviour of the mass in some way. Sorbitol, invert sugar, glucose syrup and panela powder are all sugars which work as moisture stabilisers, thickeners or sweeteners. Isomalt is a sugar alcohol, widely used in sugar sculpture. Tartaric acid, like citric acid, will convert sucrose to invert sugar. Ultratex is a thickener agent for use in both hot and cold applications and gelatine and pectin are gelling agents and stabilisers.
