Cassia Tora Gum

Cassia Tora Gum Powder

Cassia Tora and Obtusifolia are the two very similar looking seeds that are wildly grown in many parts of India. Seeds of Cassia Tora/Obtusifolia are collected by the native people and processed by the industry to get Cassia splits which are then used to produce the powder.

Cassia Gum comprises (is comprised of) 75% polysaccharide consisting primarily of a linear chain of 1,4- -D-mannopyranose units with 1,6 linked -D-galactopyranose units. The ratio of mannose to galactose is about 5:1.


  • Easy dispersion and viscosity with the increasing temperature.
  • Exponential increase in viscosity with anincrease in concentration.
  • Neutral Polysaccharide that is mostly not affected by the presence of other electrolytes.
  • Good stability at a wide range of pH but unstable in a very strong acid ambient
  • High stability in retorted processes.
  • Good freeze thaw stability
  • Interactivity with other hydro-colloids (carrageenan, xanthan gum and agar-agar). This can lead to a synergy and have a considerable effect on the consistency and elasticity with an improvement in stability when freezing/melting and provide a better resistance to gelatinization as well.
