Astragalus Gum, also known as tragacanth gum, is a natural gum obtained from the sap of the Astragalus plant. This plant is native to the Middle East, particularly Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. Astragalus gum has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its healing properties and as a food additive for its thickening and stabilizing properties.
The gum is harvested by making small incisions in the stems of the plant and allowing the sap to dry on the plant. The dried sap is then collected and processed into a gum. The gum has a yellowish-brown color and a slightly sweet taste. It is odorless and dissolves easily in water.
Astragalus gum is commonly used in the food industry as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is particularly useful in dairy products, such as ice cream, yogurt, and cream cheese, as well as in salad dressings, sauces, and baked goods. It is also used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries as a binding agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer.
