Cassia Tora Gum Powder
Cassia Tora Gum Powder
Cassia gum, flour from the endosperm of Cassia Tora is well suited for use in the manufacture of gels in combination of other colloids and has potentially numerous food applications. It is used as a thickening agent in pet food and other technical applications (e.g. emulsification, foam stabilization, moisture retention and texture improvement) at concentrations comparable to those of other edible natural gums. Cassia Gum is approved for use in Europe and is listed as a stabilizer (thickening and gelling agent) in the manufacture of canned pet foods (for cats and dogs). It is also approved for use in Japan and is listed as a food additive.
Gelling properties of refined cassia gum powder:
Refined Cassia gum is a high number of galactose side chains prohibit the synergistic gelling effect with anionic polymers. As a result, a smaller amount of hydrocolloid blend containing cassia gum is needed in a food product to achieve the same effect as with carrageenan alone or blends of carrageenan with other related galactomannans.
