Tamrind Gum

Tamrind Gum comes from the seed of a Tamrind pod found on Tamrindus Indica, a tree that takes approximately 10 years to yield. The Tree blooms in August to December and the Fruits are harvested in January to February. The pulp and the seeds are separated. The seeds are further de-husked, broken, cleaned and ground to obtain Tamarind Kernel Powder. TKP falls into the category of Natural gums and just like Guar, Xathan and other gums, TKP is bio-compatible, bio-degradable, non- toxic, natural polymer.

Hydration and Viscosity

TKP disperses instantly even in cold water and forms a gel. The solution is very stable in a wide range of temperatures, pH and shear. The viscosity of TKP is directly proportional to its concentration; it increases sharply even with small increase in the concentration. Viscosity is not impacted by pH of the solution, or by iron, sodium and salts. Viscosity increases with even a small amount of sugar (such as starch syrup, D-glucose, sucrose and other oligosaccharides) in the mixture.

TKP is insoluble in alcohol.
