Alland & Robert has launched powdered organic acacia gum packaged in a doypack of 150 grams net. The product is distributed online via French marketplace Greenweez and soon, Amazon.
There are two acacia varieties that exudate acacia gum. The company’s acacia gum product is derived from the senegal variety, which it says is the highest quality organic gum with most functional properties.
The product can be added to any recipe, the company says, usually at the same time as the flour, starch or any dry matter. It’s effective at between 1 and 6% of the total weight of the recipe. The company says the product is suitable for vegan and gluten-free applications, and can be used as an emulsifying agent while also providing fibre enrichment.
Anne-Sophie Alland, Head of Strategy & Development at Alland & Robert, said: “Acacia gum is a real asset for cooks looking for healthy recipes. It is an extraordinary, multifunctional ingredient, but still little known in many countries. Its functional properties are so numerous that it is useful in a multitude of recipes, whether in pastry, baking, in sauces or soups. It is Alland & Robert’s unique expertise that allows us to share these diverse applications of acacia gum.”
Violaine Fauvarque, Marketing & Communication Manager at Alland & Robert, added: “Acacia gum is a cooking ingredient already well known in many countries such as India and the Middle East. However, two years of pandemic have prompted consumers to cook more at home, and to take an interest to new ingredients to diversify their recipes. At the same time, people are scrutinizing more and more the content of their plates and looking for naturalness.”
