But have you ever wondered what magic goes into creating these iconic retro sweets? Let’s unravel the mystery behind the ingredients of Flying Saucers, available in delightful packs at SoSweet.

A Confectionery Marvel: The Ingredients of Flying Saucers

Flying Saucers are crafted from a blend of simple yet delightful ingredients. The main components include:

  1. Sugar: This sweet foundation sets the base for the delightful taste of Flying Saucers.
  2. Maize Starch: Gives the sweets their distinct, light, and airy texture.
  3. Water: A fundamental ingredient that aids in achieving the perfect consistency.
  4. Dextrose: Adds a touch of sweetness and contributes to the overall texture.
  5. Acid (Tartaric Acid): Provides the tangy, fizzy sensation that these sweets are famous for.
  6. Acidity Regulator (Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate): Balances the acidity to ensure a pleasant taste.
  7. Natural Colours (Beetroot Red, Curcumin): These natural dyes lend Flying Saucers their vibrant and appealing hue.

Each of these ingredients plays a crucial role in creating the unique experience that is a Flying Saucer sweet.
