Italian to English translations [PRO]
Food & Drink / Industrial confectionery production
Italian term or phrase: Colati
The term refers to confectionery products/sweets, such as fruit jellies, that are poured into molds. My guess is that cast or poured products could be right, but I wondered if anyone has more specific knowledge of this sector and might know if either of those terms are correct, or if there is a better term.

Any links to glossaries for this sector would also be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

with a little research on the web on candy casting and moulding, including chocolate and hard candies, this appears to be the term most often used. It applies to any material that can be poured or cast into a mould.
