Organic Tara Gum Features
Odorless and tasteless
Smooth and soft texture
Stabilizer, thickener, emulsifier, and gelling agent
Organic Tara gum is a white to yellowish powder made from the ground endosperm of the seeds of the Tara plant caesalpinia spinose (also known as the Peruvian Carob), found in northern Africa and parts of South America. A natural thickening agent, in food preparations, organic tara gum enhances texture, controls moisture, creates a smooth mouthfeel, provides viscosity, and inhibits ice crystal formation in frozen dairy products. Besides food, organic tara gum is used in the pharmaceutical industry to thicken oral natural supplements and in the cosmetic industry as a gelling and thickening agent.
How Tara Gum is Different From Other Additives
Chemically, tara gum is a galacto-mannan. Tara gum is similar in composition to Organic Locust Bean Gum and Organic Guar Gum, however it has the ability to solubilize in both cold and hot water. With a Mannose to Galactose ratio of 3:1, tara gum is less viscous than guar gum, but more viscous than locust bean gum. As compared to Guar Gum which can have an unpleasant odor and taste, tara gum is odorless and tasteless, lending it to be used in food products more discreetly.
Targa Gum Uses with Other Additives
Tara gum is often combined with Xanthan Gum or Carrageenan to form a soft gel structure for uses in sauces, jams, jellies, dairy products, and condiments.
