Cassia Gum Petfood Grade

Cassia Gum Pet Dood E499 is used as a food for pets substituting locust bean gum or carob gum outside Europe. It is used with the combination of Kapa Carrageenan as wet canned pet food.

Cassia Gum 1f499 is approved for use in Europe as an additive in Animal feed nutrition through regulatory commission (EU) 2019/1947.

Gelling and Texturizing of Pet Foods (Dogs and Cats) – Wet and Semi Wet Formulations. It forms thermoplastic gels with kappa carrageenan and also forms viscoelastic gel with xanthan gum.

According to the European food safety authority (EFSA) the cassia gum is used in combination with other gelling agents such as the kappa- carrageenan or the Xanthan gum during manufacture of the pet foods.

  • Chemical Structure

    • Cassia gum is comprised of at least 75% high molecular weight (approximately 200,000-300,000) polysaccharide consisting primarily of a linear chain of 1,4-?-D-mannopyranose units with 1,6 linked á- D-galactopyranose units.
    • The ratio of mannose to galactose is about 5:1.
    • The composition of saccharides is: mannose (77.2-78.9%), galactose (15.7-14.7%) and glucose (7.1-6.3%).
    • Like most polysaccharides, the following formula applies: (C6H10O5)n.H2O. Cassia gum is related to carob bean gum, tara gum andguar gum in terms of structure and chemical properties.
  • Physical Properties

    • Cassia gum is hot water soluble and requires heating to fully solubilise and reach full viscosity in aqueous solutions.
    • Cassia Gum is comprised of at least 75 % polysaccharide consisting primarily of a linear chain of 1,4-ß-D-mannopyranose units with 1,6 linked ä-D-alactopyranose units.
    • Cassia gum forms firm thermoplastic gels with carrageenan.
    • Cassia gum and xanthan gum, on their own, do not have the ability to form gels. But cassia gum combined with xanthan gum, aqueous dispersions of cassia gum form cohesive, elastic gels.
    • Cassia is known as one of the best gelling agent, thickening additives, emulsifying additives and stabilizing additives.
  • Applications

    • Medicinal uses - Cassia tora powder has properties, useful in healing skin diseases like ring worm, psoriasis and itch. With additional natural gelling property Cassia Tora is also useful as gelling additives.
