Liber & Co. Demerara Gum Syrup is equal to Liber & Co’s Classic Gum Syrup, except that demerara is a raw, minimally processed cane sugar that retains a distinct molasses note.
Gum syrup is a simple syrup combined with gum arabic, an all-natural emulsifier derived from African acacia trees. The addition of gum arabic lends the syrup a silky and more luxuriant mouthfeel when compared to a common simple syrup. It is a superior sweetener with incredible versatility. Their Demerara Gum Syrup is a rich 2:1 simple syrup, meaning a little goes a long way.
