Caragum® 200 is a special blend of gums designed to impart viscosity when added to cold water and further boost viscosity after heating to 180° F. Caragum 200 thickens and adds body to products such as soups, sauces, and gravies. Caragum 200 is widely used to replace wheat starch in traditional sauces and replace other starches to allow for more delicate flavors to be detected.
