Flavors & Ingredients
Acacia gum is an emulsifier, an encapsulation agent and a bulking agent.
As an emulsifier and stabilizer, acacia gum is used in liquid and powdered emulsions. Its film forming and tensioactive properties are perfect for emulsions of essential oils and powders (flavors), and are convenient for the stabilization of oil in water emulsions before a spray drying operation.
In the ingredients industry, acacia gum is used to encapsulate liposoluble substances, essential oils, vitamins, flavors and colorings.
Its bulking agent properties will have a fixative effect on powdered ingredients and dry blends, and offer protection against external contaminations.
