What is Tragacanth Powder?

Gum tragacanth is a colorless, tasteless and edible natural macromolecule with a sticky and slippery taste. Some of the components in tragacanth are easily soluble in water to form a true solution; while the other component (tragacanth) is easy to absorb water and swell into a gel-like substance. The 1% gum solution is a smooth, thick, milky white non-adhesive gel-like liquid after being fully hydrated. The biggest feature of Gum tragacanth is that its gum properties are not affected under the condition of low acidity (pH<2=). It does not need to add other surfactants when used in oil-in-water emulsion stabilization systems; because Gum tragacanth also reduces surface tension Gum tragacanth has a very high solution viscosity; the aqueous solution with a concentration of 1% has the characteristics of a pseudoplastic fluid (with the characteristics of stirring); therefore, it has a good advantage of pipeline transportation. Gum tragacanth is also insoluble in organic solvents such as alcohol and oils and fats , the pH of the aqueous solution

Tragacanth Powder Identification Test

1g of Tragacanth Powder solubility sample should form a smooth, thick, milky white mucus in 50ml of water, insoluble in ethanol, and not swollen in 60% (w/V) ethanol. The aqueous suspension of the sample was observed under a microscope. There may be many round or irregular scale-like angular fragments; starch granules below 25/μm in diameter; and lamellar cell membranes. When iodized zinc chloride solution is added, it turns purple. The sample reacts with a saturated aqueous solution of copper acetate and a precipitate should occur. Determined according to the method of identification test 3 in “Gum Arabic (10102)”. Compare the stain of the sample with the stain of the solution containing arabinose, xylose, fucose, galactose and galacturonic acid. These substances should be present, but mannose and uronic acid should not be present.
