Gummies : Gelatin and pectin

Hi,
I’m trying to formulate gummies and i am having issues with texture. I want to mix pectin and gelatin. I’ll be pleased to have som help in production process. For now, I’m using water, sugar, syrup sugar, gelatin and citric acid. I plan to add glycerol too in order to reduce the stickness. I do not know when to add and which quantity to add.

Thanks in advance for your help

Texture i reached is too soft and sticky if gummies are not stored into fridge. I would like to get real gummies (not too hard, not too soft). A friend of mine brought me gummies from US, texture was perfect and the ingredients list was about gelatin + pectin. This is the reason why i though about mixing both of them (but each raw material need to be added at the specific time, specific temperature…). Do you know to do this ?

i am surprised why you put glycerin in gummies as its hygroscopic it promotes stickiness in the end product…
Whats your purpose in adding glycerin.
Gummies are mainly sugar, glucose, gelling agent, ( gelatin, pectin, thin boiling starch or combinations)., flavoring and colorant .
