Guar Gum Extender for Bakery Applications

WHITE MARSH, Md.TIC Gums new Ticaloid Lite Powder is a guar gum extender designed for the baking industry that delivers the functional benefits of guar gum using other gums instead of guar gum.

Ticaloid Lite Powder is a specialized blend of hydrocolloids that is recommended particularly for cakes, bread and similar bakery products to improve texture, mouthfeel and increase volume as well as retain moisture. It also imparts a moderate stable viscosity to liquid systems. Usage levels of Ticaloid Lite Powder are 0.15-0.30% of flour weight.

For food manufacturers and product developers using guar in bakery products where moisture management is important, the textural attributes guar gum provides can be copied by other blends of gums. Ticaloid Lite Powder has some guar, but it also has other gums with the properties of guar. These other gums are in more abundant supply and not subject to the same demand or price variations that guar gum is. Blends of gums often provide added benefits to end users that a single gum cannot.
