Home Products Tamarind Kernel Powder Products Best Quality Tamarind Kernel Powder


We manufacture best quality tamarind kernel powder Grade “B” passing through 150- 250 mesh containing moderate viscosity and moderate filtration powder, Tamarind seeds are derived from tamarind tree, tamarind seeds comprise of 35% husk and 65% white kernel is used for producing different grades of powders are called starch .The white kernels are rich in carbohydrates, fibres, oils and protein as well and also has high absorbing water capacity. Hence the tamarind kernel powder is 300% more efficient than corn starch.


Tamarind kernel Powder is one of the natural hydrocolloid source containing natural gums and starch, and Viscosity is the main parameter to assess the quality of natural gums like tamarind kernel powder. The applications of any natural gums are dependent on its viscosity and other rheological properties i.e. directly linked to procurement of raw material and roasting methods used in separation of tamarind kernels from Testa (shell) because over roasting tamarind kernels will decrease gum concentration (gel strength) and starch levels as well as the viscosity solution hence It is summarized that the viscosity of powder solution also depends on gum concentration and roasting methods. We manufacture different grades and procure different raw materials of Tamarind Kernel Powder products for different industrial usages and applications.
