“The approval of TICAmulsion in the European market allows manufacturers to take advantage of the unique properties of modified gum arabic,” said Greg Andon, TIC Gums’ president.

TICAmulsion, from TIC Gums, is now an approved additive for flavor-oil emulsions and other food products in the European market.

TICAmulsion is a patented technology that utilizes the OSA modification of gum arabic to provide superior emulsification. Made from a commonly available grade of gum arabic, TICAmulsion is not prone to the shortages associated with other grades of gum arabic. Flavor concentrate manufacturers can now create high oil load emulsions of up to 40%, with a reliable ingredient source, for increased production efficiencies and an overall cost-in-use savings.

Regulatory Approval Opens New Markets
On 28 August 2013 Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council and the Annex to Commission Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 were amended to include OSA modified gum arabic (E 423) as an authorized food additive.
