Valley Cottage, NY — 01/02/2018 — The rising consumption of food products and beverages will continue boosting the use of several additives, including gum hydrocolloids. The wide presence of gum hydrocolloids in various consumable foods is on the account of the properties of the ingredient. As a functional food ingredient, gum hydrocolloid is present to provide stability and increase viscosity of an edible product. The adhesive properties of hydrocolloids enable the food product to naturally congeal the constituent ingredients. The growing consumption of processed food products is also expected to foster the demand for gum hydrocolloids. Additionally, the use of gum hydrocolloids has considerable reduced the fat content of food products. Accompanying the global trend of eating healthy and low calorie food products, the growth in the demand for gum hydrocolloids is expected to surge substantially.
