  • Current information on Polysaccharide Gums
  • Functional properties and applications
  • New/potential polysaccharide gums
  • Molecular structure and basic chemistry
  • Processing conditions

This new reference presents the most recent information on new and potential food hydrocolloids originated from agricultural products, including - yellow mustard gum - flaxseed gum - cereals (wheat, barley, oat, and corn)o psyllium fenugreek - soybean. Polysaccharide Gums from Agricultural Products: Processing, Structures and Functionality addresses the basic chemistry, extracting processes, molecular structure, and, most importantly, the functional properties and potential applications of new polysaccharide gums.
