One of the primary functions of food thickeners is to enhance the texture of food products. They contribute to creaminess, viscosity, and mouthfeel, ensuring a satisfying eating or drinking experience. Thickeners are crucial in stabilizing emulsions and preventing phase separation in products such as sauces, dressings, and beverages. This not only enhances product appearance but also extends shelf life. Using thickeners as fat alternatives and the demand for healthier dietary options are growing. They can mimic the creamy texture of fats, allowing for the development of low-fat or fat-free alternatives. Some food thickeners have gelling properties, making them ideal for creating gels and jellies. This is particularly relevant in producing jams, desserts, and certain confectionery items.

Clean-label products are in greater demand as consumers become more discerning about the ingredients in their food. This has led to development natural and plant-based thickeners as alternatives to traditional synthetic options. Plant-based diets have spurred innovation in developing thickeners derived from plant sources such as seaweed, guar gum, and pectin. These plant-based options cater to the preferences of environmentally conscious consumers. Food science and technology advances have led to the development of novel thickeners with improved functionalities.
