TIC Gums now offers a video series to help food and beverage manufacturers explain to their customers what gums are, where they come from and why they are used. The new “The Basics of Food Gums” videos also support the clear label trend for transparency—about what is in consumers’ food and where ingredients are sourced. 

“Gums have been part of the human diet for thousands of years but consumers tend to be unfamiliar with their names and don’t really know what they are, where they come from or the purpose they serve in their food. What little information that is available online can be confusing or misleading,” notes Greg Andon, TIC Gums president.

These videos close the gap between the perception and reality of food gums. View the first two episodes of The Basics of Food Gums series available at
