This pectin is used in the low-calorie fruit spreads. Gums, because of their ability to give highly viscous solutions at relatively low concentrations, are chosen as gelling, stabilizing, and suspending agents. Gums all have hydrophilie properties and are therefore included in the water-soluble fibers. They can be obtained from several sources including exudate gums (gum arabic), bean gums (locust bean gum), seed gums (guar gum), and seaweed gums (agar, algin, and carrageenan). They are used in many foods such as candies and other confections, fruit sauces, syrups, toppings, spreads, baked goods, salad dressings, and beverages.

CH 11 11 HQOC (CH 2 )? CH CH (CH 2)? 8. Oleic acid in the cis and trans configurations. When oils are hardened, as in the production of hard cooking oils and margarines, the melting point is obviously raised, making it easier to transport the oils or to spread them on foods. The hardening process is described in Chapter 22. Unsaturated fatty acids, because of their points of unsaturation, can exist in different configurations or forms. In nature, most occur in the cis-form (Fig. 8) but when the oils are hydrogenated or hardened, as in some margarines, a change occurs in the configurations of some of the unsaturated fatty acids that remain.

It has been shown that exceedingly high doses of the vitamin taken for extended periods of time can cause some problems.
