Guar Gum Replacements offer Product Improvement
(Tucson, Arizona) Dramatically rising Guar Gum costs have driven the development of guar replacements. Once the lowest priced, most widely used gum, Guar Gum has now become one of the more expensive hydrocolloids. Because of its former low cost, Guar Gum was often used instead of other gums that offered superior functionality and product improvement.
Hydro-Fi: The Next Generation of Texturizers
Gum Technology and Fiberstar have formed a collaboration to create Hydro-Fi, an all new line of texturizing ingredients for the food industry. Hydro-Fi ingredients combine Gum Technology’s Coyote Brand hydrocolloids with Fiberstar’s Citri-Fi citrus fiber. Hydro-Fi ingredients have been designed to provide innovative solutions for specific challenges in food formulation. For example, Hydro-Fi has been formulated to replace 50% of the eggs and reduce costs in cakes. In reduced fat ice cream and sorbet, Hydro-Fi reduces ice crystallization, improves texture, increases overrun and delays melting. Hydro-Fi also provides sauces with even suspension and emulsification and improves yield in meat products. Click here for more information
