Sharpen Your Sweet Tooth: Purity in Candy Manufacturing

Candy and chocolate assortment

Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, but it’s also a big day for candy.

Who doesn’t remember exchanging Valentines with your classmates with the little pieces of candy attached!

According to, Americans spent $2.2B for candy on Valentine’s Day in 2022.

The Team at Savillex got to thinking about the candy and how important purity is in the candy manufacturing process for several reasons:



Ensuring the purity of ingredients prevents contamination and minimizes the risk of foodborne illnesses. Contaminants such as bacteria, mold, or foreign objects can compromise the safety of the final product.



Purity directly affects the taste, texture, and appearance of the candy. Impurities can alter the flavor profile, introduce undesirable textures, or cause discoloration, leading to dissatisfaction among consumers.



Maintaining purity standards across batches is crucial for consistency in product quality. Consumers expect uniformity in taste, texture, and appearance when purchasing candies from the same brand or product line.


To achieve purity in candy manufacturing, rigorous quality control measures are implemented throughout the production process, including sourcing high-quality ingredients, maintaining hygienic manufacturing facilities, employing proper sanitation practices, and conducting thorough testing and inspection procedures. Additionally, adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles further ensures the purity and safety of the final product.  The Quality Control Laboratory ensures these measures are practiced.

When using Savillex Lab Bottles, Vials, and Jars our customers in the Quality Control Laboratory at the candy making facility can be confident that the container maintains the sample integrity because of their low leachable and extractable profile.  A variety of general laboratory supplies are also available to support all of your Analytical Chemistry needs.

Like matters of the heart, when the container matters, think Savillex!
