Product description

          Eastman? Ester Gum 8WA-M kosher is a pale, thermoplastic glycerol ester of rosin. It is produced by means of a steam stripping process that yields a low-odor resin suitable for use in beverage applications. This resin is produced from glycerin from non-animal origin and gum rosin harvested from pine trees. All kosher products produced by Eastman are manufactured under rabbinical supervision in full accordance with Jewish dietary law.

          Eastman? Ester Gum 8WA-M kosher is recommended for use as clouding and weighting agent for citrus-flavored non-alcoholic beverage concentrates.
