Tara gum, Aglumix®01, is used in the production of ice creams, sorbets and ice lollies because of its capability to absorb water even at low temperatures and to promote the nucleation and growth of ice crystals during the freezing and thawing process. Tara gum minimises the hardening of the finished product that normally occurs during aging.
