I am having a problem of spice coating from cashews coming off after packaging.
We are using coconut oil to coat the spices after dry roasting.
After packing the spices are dropping to the bottom of the package leaving the cashews flavourless
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Do you advise to use Arabic gum?
oil is not a good choice.
try a gum as gum arabic. you need a sticky agent because.
Any idea how much gum Arabic should be used
Hello you can use 0.75-1.5 kg per 100 kg.
Try some biopolymer like pectin coating it will provide a moisture barrier and won’t fall off from the product
Is this dissolved in water
Yes but u need to heat the solution for about 29-25 mins at 40-45C on a magnetic stirrer.
0,75 to 1,5 kg of Arabic gum? Mixed with how much water, what is the concentration of the solution. Thanks
you can use this ratio:
1 gum arabic
make the mixture then age it for one day before use.
Thank you for the advice.
Isn’t enough Arabic gum as an adhesive agent. Why we should use coconut oil ?
