Gum Guru Blog

Some product developers may be overlooking the fact that gums have a positive impact on the taste, texture, and mouthfeel of foods and beverages. That's why TIC Gums has created a web-based video series, "Does This Have Gum In It?" to demonstrate how even a small adjustment to the viscosity and/or texture of foods or beverages can mean the difference between a great eating/drinking experience and a negative one.

The first "Does This Have Gum In It?" episode focused on candy-coated chewing gums. In the second episode, Gum Guru® Maureen Akins discusses the use of gums in salad dressing. Maureen describes the benefits of using the innovative FASTir® Xanthan EC product to speed production and deliver the benefits of traditional western xanthan in a much more affordable way.

Episodes can be viewed on the "Does This Have Gum In It?" page of Guru TV at Add Guru TV to your RSS feed to be notified when new videos are posted.
