New Idea of Clean Label

Even if you have never heard of “GLYLOID®” or “tamarind seed gum”, a plant name of “tamarind” is familiar to many of you. GLYLOID® is a hydrocolloid derived from seeds of tamarind tree.

How does GLYLOID® function in food and beverage? As a basic thickener and stabilizer, GLYLOID® provides viscosity without causing any unpleasant mouthfeel, and helps you achieve expected rheological properties and stability of final products.

GLYLOID® is also newly known as a hydrocolloid of natural origin which fits to recent big trend of “clean label”. You can replace unwelcome synthetic ingredients with GLYLOID® while maintaining original sensory profiles.

In the fast-growing market of plant-based food, GLYLOID® is a functional stabilizer having natural perception. It makes your plant-based products more attractive in terms of quality and taste.

Let’s take a new clean-label approach with GLYLOID®.


GLYLOID® can provide advantages and function in food application.
