I went to my local baking store and I got the Super Gum, they told me it works better than tylose, I've never used either before, so for me it works just fine.

Now my questions are...Has anyone ever heard of this product before? and If I am substituting the tylose for super gum to make gum paste, Will the measurement for the ingredient changes?

Thanks !

I bought some from an online store. I didnt see the difference with the tylose and the Super Gum.

Super Gum is another name/brand for CMC--which is an alternative for tylose or gum tex.

It's no better, or worse, than tylose, but it can be more expensive.

Check the label....if it is CMC [carboxymethyl cellulose] then it is the same thing as Tylose....tylose is just a common name.

SAVE YOURSELF SOME CASH.....

Go to eBay and search for CMC or carboxymethyl cellulose....you can buy a pound of it for about $10 from several companies....all of which is food grade. It is used as a thickener for many food products besides gum paste.
