Joris - Belgian Liquorice



    Joris - Belgian Liquorice

    Joris was founded in Belgium almost 100 years ago by confectioner Joris Van den Driessche and is steeped in tradition. Joris is one of the few businesses that still uses real acacia gum as one of its basic ingredients. Acacia gum is a great binding agent, but also very expensive. Acacia gum has the benefits of not being sticky, easily dissolving in the mouth and being low in calories compared to starches used in other liquorice.

    Hard gums are washed in a steam bath after air drying for a week. This gives them a beautiful shine without the need for animal-derived washes. Joris Sweets is the only confectioner in Europe that still uses this traditional technique.
