Gum Arabic (acacia gum) is a natural hydrocolloid with a polyvalent functionality across the food industry.
Gum Arabic Quick Gum by Norevo offers highly efficient stabilising, suspending and emulsifying properties to beverage manufacturers and producers of flavoured emulsions and concentrates.
Gum Arabic Quick Gum has the ability to homogenise and stabilise flavour or beverage emulsions to maintain liquid compositions in stable suspension without a negative skimming effect and to encapsulate the micro-particles of spray-dried flavour powders.
Through its perfect wettability and quick dissolution time, Quick Gum provides optimised homogeneous emulsions. Another functional property of Quick Gum is its ability to encapsulate aromatic spray-powders, which impedes their oxidation and protects their olfactive and gustatory properties over a longer time. It allows for a perfectly stable texture of oil-in-water emulsions.
Having a neutral taste and odour, Quick Gum is a natural carrier that enables a full flavour release of the various recipe components. Adequate to produce turbidity in liquids, Quick Gum is equally able to provide clear and transparent emulsions corresponding to the sensory characteristics of the product. Heat and acid-stable, Quick Gum is easy to handle and integrate into any production process.
Soft drinks, fruit-flavoured water and milk-based beverages, as well as smoothies, soft-alcoholic drinks, light-coloured or dark aromatic emulsions and transparent or turbid emulsions benefit from the performing properties of Norevo’s beverage stabiliser Gum Arabic Quick Gum.
Traditionally incorporated as a basic ingredient in pharmaceutical pastilles, it subsequently made its way into sweets, fine foods, cosmetics and beverages, as well as technical applications. Gum Arabic is available in certified-organic quality
Norevo has been involved in the sourcing, trade and processing of Gum Arabic for more than 100 years and belongs to the leading producers of this natural hydrocolloid on a worldwide scale.
Strategic manager at Norevo Alexander Wolff said: “The thorough know-how, we gained and the sourcing network, we built over the years, has made Gum Arabic to one of our signature products.”
Unique properties among the natural hydrocolloids
Gum Arabic is the gummy exudate of naturally growing African Acacia species and classified as a natural hydrocolloid.
From this raw material, Norevo has developed Quick Gum, optimising the properties of the genuine gum to offer tailor-made, process-oriented qualities to the confectionery, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
Quick Gum offers both the unique characteristics of Gum Arabic plus the enhanced functionality of a purified and refined gum in quick-soluble powder form. It is fully soluble in water – also in cold water – even at high concentration levels up to 50%. Compared to other hydrocolloids, it shows a low viscosity and outstanding acid stability.
