Gummy Bears Under the Microscope

Fruit gummies are delicious and taste good throughout the year, be it in summer or winter, in the desert at 50°C or at the North Pole at -40°C. The goodies seem to exhibit a broad spectrum of elastic properties, varying between soft and hard and are strongly influenced by temperature. Dynamic-mechanical analysis is employed for the characterization of visco-elastic properties.
