Acacia gum, also known as Acacia fiber, is a natural alternative source of fiber that will increase the benefits of dietary and dairy products.
Acacia gum is widely used in the dietary industry for fiber enrichment purposes and as a healthy stabilizer. It has scientifically proven and recognized prebiotic effects, in addition to an excellent digestive tolerance and no intestinal discomfort. Acacia gum’s PH is compatible with milk proteins, and is resistant to acidity and heat.
Alland & Robert provide a specific range of Acacia Fiber that offers a guarantee of minimum 90% fiber content (international method AOAC 985-29).
In dairies and ice creams, it is also used as a fat replacer, a stabilization agent, a thickening agent and a texture improver.
The increase in specialist diets, such as vegan, lactose-free and paleo, has led to a rise in the market for dairy-free beverages. Acacia gum can be used as an emulsifier and a mouthfeel improver in vegetable based milks and any dietary beverage.
