WHITE MARSH, Md. – TIC Gums has released the newest episode in The Basics of Food Gums video series, Agglomerated Gums. This episode explores the benefits of using agglomerated gums and the impact they have on the manufacturing process.

Hydrocolloids are essential ingredients as they provide texture and stability in food and beverage applications. However, powdered gums can create several challenges during processing including slow dispersion, increased dusting and delayed hydration. Although manufacturers have relied on dry blending and oil slurries to alleviate these issues, many are finding themselves reworking the batches and lengthening their production schedules.
