Tara Gum is a natural product obtained from the seeds of the Tara plant. The plant, Caesalpinia spinose is a member of the Leguminosae family and indigenous to Peru. Tara Gum itself is the ground endosperm of the seeds obtained from the fruit of the Tara tree. Tara Gum is a galacto-mannan similar to both Locust Bean Gum and Guar Gum with a Mannose to Galactose ratio of 3:1. Unlike Locust Bean Gum and Guar Gum, Tara Gum has the ability to solubilize in both cold (partial hydration) or hot (full hydration) solution.
Benefits: creates soft gel texture when used in combination with Xanthan Gum or Carrageenan, improves gel elasticity and water retention in gels, improves freeze-thaw stability by inhibiting ice crystal formation, emulsion stability, improved odor and taste over guar gum, excellent flavor release and stability under acidic conditions.
