Natural gums are long chains of sugars within indigenous plant materials that are either water-soluble or capable of taking in water. Gums are used for the following: Disperse fat and proteins in milk items. Stop formation of ice crystals in icy products. Boost the feeling of food in the mouth. Aid in moisture retention in pastry shop items. Guar gum is drawn out from the seeds of Cyamopsis tetragonolobus, a member of the pea family, which is understood only as a grown plant. An African citizen that was domesticated in India is grown in Texas and Oklahoma. One example of an indigenous North American gum producing plant is the western larch. Periodontal is removed from larch timber chips. The gum tissue generating properties of this decidious conifer have been recognized for practically 100 years however it is only recently that it has been commercially exploited as a source of gum. Although larch periodontal has been approved for use in foods, it has not been used therefore in edible products.
