31 Jul 2023 - TechCorner

TARA GUM is a powdered hydrocolloid obtained from the grinding of Caesalpinia Spinosa seeds, commonly known as tara, a small tree belonging to the legume family. It is a gluten-free product.

TARA GUM is characterized by high viscosity and heat resistance. It is primarily used as a gelling, thickening, and stabilizing agent, effective even at very low dosages.

TARA GUM is perfect for thickening instant soups, sauces, creams, and puddings. Thanks to its moisture retention capabilities, it significantly improves the texture of baked goods. In ice creams and sorbets, it stabilizes water and prevents ice formation.
