EDISON, NJ. — Naturally sourced from acacia trees, gum acacia from ISC Gums is vegan, plant-based and non-GMO. It is used in food and beverage applications including gum drops, gummy candies, icing, beverages and smoothies.
The natural, tasteless ingredient also may provide a smoother mouthfeel and creamier texture while reducing the formation of ice crystals in plant-based ice cream applications. Its low calorie content makes it a seamless ingredient in sugar-reduced and whipped ice creams, according to the company.
