Acid Preparation

Add citric acid and sodium citrate to twice the amount of warm water (The amount of warm water is twice the amount of acidifier), dissolve, and stir well


Adjust Acidity (Ph Adjustment)

Dissolve the potassium sorbate and sweeteners ( sodium cyclamate, acesulfame) separately in a little warm water in advance, and prepare the flavors and colors.

When the temperature of the solution is reduced to about 65°C, add the sweeteners, potassium sorbate, flavors, and colors.

Finally, add the prepared acid, stir evenly while adding, and keep pH levels no lower than 3.6-3.8.

Fill and seal.



Sterilize at 85°C for 15 minutes, then cool down.

Tips and Tricks

Now that you have a basic understanding of how to make jelly from jelly powder, it’s an easy jelly recipe, right? But easy does not equal success.

Now, let's share a few tips and tricks that will help you get the perfect jelly every time.

Tips and Tricks

1. Jelly Powder Selection

When choosing jelly powder, there are various levels of transparency, texture, quality, and pricing to consider, choose one that's suitable for your needs and taste.

Be sure to measure your jelly powder accordingly. The amount of jelly powder differs based on the desired consistency, it is important to measure it exactly as directed.

2. Temperature

Because the jelly powder mainly belongs to the "carrageenan - konjac gum" system, the solubility of konjac gum is relatively low, so you need to pay special attention to the temperature and heating time.

If the temperature is too low or the heating time is too short, the powder can not be completely dissolved, the jelly taste is not good, or worse, it will cause the jelly is very tender and unshaped.

However, if the heating temperature is too high and the time is too long while adding a buffer such as sodium citrate, then the carrageenan is easy to have an alkaline taste and deacetylation denaturation, resulting in the phenomenon of "egg soup". The final jelly may still be unshaped.

Therefore, it is recommended not to keep warm after boiling in summer, 10min after boiling in winter, and between the two in spring and autumn.

3. pH

Carrageenan is not acid-resistant, the lower the temperature when adding acid the better, generally at 60-80 ℃ before filling jelly or according to the actual process conditions, otherwise the high temperature is likely to destroy the carrageenan gel, affecting the taste.

At the same time, it is recommended to add citric acid after it is dissolved in water, so as not to cause local over-acid.

pH is the key, if the pH is too high, the product taste is poor and has a short shelf life; if the pH is too low, the product taste is also poor, and the gel is easily destroyed;

The gel strength of carrageenan decreases with the increase of acidity, the pH value of jelly should not be lower than 3.6, preferably 3.6-3.8;

Other colloids should be added for a more acidic taste.

4. Pasteurization

It will also affect the taste, which needs to be adjusted according to the actual situation

5. Filtration

After boiling, use a sieve to filter the liquid, the purpose is to remove the insoluble konjac gum particles, to obtain relatively transparent jelly, this can be done to get some high-grade jelly transparent effect.

6. Set

Be patient and allow the jelly to set overnight in the refrigerator. This will ensure that the jelly is properly set and has a smooth texture.
