Adam Bosset, TIC GumsTechnical Service Representative Adam Bosset spends much of his day fielding questions from customers who reach out to us and, recently, the topic of replacing pectin in acidified protein beverages has been a common query. We asked him to provide recommendations for these applications:

"Our R&D team has identified gum synergies that mimic pectin's mouthfeel, ability to suspend and, most importantly protect protein. Proteins can potentially denature and clump in acidic environments which makes understanding the isoelectric point of proteins critical to the replacement process."

Adam's recommendations

  • Fruit-based drinks--Ticaloid® PRO 148 OG stabilizes and suspends protein particulates.
  • Dairy-based coffee beverages--Ticaloid PRO D159 OG creates an indulgent drinking experience by enhancing mouthfeel.
  • Juice beverages--Ticaloid 310 S reduces the awareness of particulates and is a great cold water soluble option for pulp suspension.
