Thickeners and Vegetable Gums and its Properties:

The food grade thickeners and vegetable gums are obtained from certain modified food starches, vegetable gums, and other polysaccharides. When the thickeners and vegetable gums are added to the food products and beverages, it absorbs the fluids that are present in those products. Eventually, the food product thickens up.

Breaking of the starch helps reverse the thickening action and the water molecules present in the food products and beverages act as a free fluid for absorption by the body. The thickeners and vegetable gums helps hold the water molecules even during the digestion process. Thus, thickeners and vegetable gums reduces the availability of fluids in the body.

The usage of thickeners and vegetable gums depend on the food product, and the purpose of usage. For example, arrowroot is being used a thickener for acidic food as the usage of corn starch loses its thickening properties eventually. There are various types of thickeners and vegetable gums available such as proteins and polysaccharides.
