Tara gum is a natural ingredient produced by grinding seeds from the Caesalinia spinosa tree. Tara gum offers a soft, smooth texture that is similar in composition to both locust bean and guar gum. Its ability to stabilize in both hot and cold water and its odorless, tasteless characteristics make it more convenient for use in a variety of foods and beverages.

Let’s get the conversation started.
vs Locust Bean Gum
Similar to guar gum and locust bean gum, tara gum is classified as a galactomannan and has a similar chemical composition to both. Its mannose-to-galactose ratio of 3:1 makes it less viscous than guar gum and more viscous than locust bean gum. As the happy medium, Tara gum offers a smooth flow compared to guar gum’s tendency to produce more cohesive textures.
Tara gum also exhibits a clean flavor profile, while guar gum can sometimes have a slight odor and off-flavor. As a result, Tara gum is often the preferred option depending upon the end application.
