Temrind Gum

  • These offered products are used in textile industry for printing polyester and cotton fabrics as these ensure colourfastness.
  • Various grades are delegated to Tamarind Seeds following which these seeds are methodically ground to powder conserving their nutritious properties, than these seeds are roasted and decorticated. The kernels of these seeds are separated by color sorter to obtain, rich tamarind kernel powder.
  • Tamarind Kernel Powder forms uniform solution on heating with water while stirring. maximum viscosity is usually obtained after boiling the dispersion for 20-30min.
  • Thick viscous dispersion are formed that yield strong, transparent, elastic films on evaporation. Tamarind polysaccharide, because of its unique properties i.e. low viscosity and low molecular weight compared to many other polysaccharide & its property of forming gel at high sugar concentrations have found numerous new applications
