Because of the wide selection, cooks and chefs can be confused as to which gum provides the best outcome in a recipe. There are so many to choose from. Each gum has its own characteristics and effect in a recipe. To add to the confusion a number of gum choices may be used together providing much different results. Most gums are thickeners, but when certain gums are combined, they will also create a gel when heated. The following infographic should help remove the confusion and allow you to choose the most perfect gum for your recipe.
