TIC Pretested Stabilizer Dust Free-862, a new gum system, may prevent weeping and purge from berries and fruits in a variety of desserts and simultaneously may solve the problem of dust associated with incorporating bulking agents, according to TIC Gums, Belcamp, Md.

A blend of cellulose gum, cane sugar and food starch, the system is dispersible and acts as both a stabilizer and thickener. A patented Pre-Hydrated process cuts down on dust.

Dust Free-862 allows for smooth and uniform coverage of fruit and berries.

"Manufacturers want to keep the pieces as whole as possible," said Maureen Akins, a food scientist for TIC Gums.

Freeze-thaw stability ranks as another benefit.
