So, what is gomma di tara?

Gomma di tara, also known as tara gum, is a natural food ingredient derived from the seed endosperm of the Caesalpinia spinosa plant. It is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in various food products such as dairy, meat, bakery, and sauces. Tara gum has excellent water-binding properties, which helps to maintain the texture and consistency of food products even under extreme conditions. It is also considered a healthy alternative to other synthetic thickeners due to its low caloric value and high fiber content. The neutral taste and odor of gomma di tara make it an ideal choice for enhancing the overall quality of food formulations.
