A natural thickening substance obtained from the trunk juice found in West Asia, rubber gum throat. Its name comes from the Greek language and means "goat's horn," which refers to the appearance and furrowed texture of dried rubber. Other names of tragacanths are the goat horn, gum tragacanth, dragon gum or green gum.

Tragacanth contains from 20% to 30% of the water-soluble fractions (gum tragacanth is not soluble in ethanol), the remaining part is so-called. bassorin, a water insoluble fraction. Tragacanth is dissolved in water to form a viscous solution, swelling to form a thick gel. The maximum solution viscosity is reached after 24 hours at room temperature or after heating for 8 hours at high temperatures - however, it should be remembered that acceleration of thickening by increasing the temperature reduces the viscosity of the finished solution. Solutions thickened with gum tragacanth are considered the most sticky and sticky of all thickened vegetable gums, that is why it is a popular natural thickener used in the confectionery industry. Solutions of gum tragacanth are resistant to heat and heating.

The tragacanth gum is listed in the list of permitted additive substances as E413 and can be used on an "quantum satis" basis, i.e. without restrictions in the amount required to obtain the appropriate technological result. In the US, gum tragacanth has the status of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) and there are no quantitative restrictions on its use in food.
