Tamarind seeds or Kernel is a by-product of Tamarind pulp industry. Tamarind gum is obtained from endosperm of seeds of the tamarind tree, which is a seed gum with potential industrial applications. Tamarind gum is having applications in paper, food, textile industry etc. Recent years research has been initiated on the use of tamarind gum in pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. Tamarind kernel powder disperses and hydrates quickly in cold water but does not reach maximum viscosity unless it is heated for 20-30 mins. Chemically tamarind kernel powder is highly branched carbohydrate polymer. The solution exhibits typical non newtonian flow properties common to most other hydrocolloids. Tamarind kernel powder is evaluated for its suitability as a carrier to improve the dissolution rate of poorly water-soluble drug celecoxcib. Tamarind gum along with xanthan gum and hydroxypropyl cellulose (water soluble neutral polymer) used for nasal mucoadhesion studies in powder formulation. Tamarind gum was also evaluated in bioadhesive tablets. Polysaccharide present in tamarind kernel powder is called as tamarind seed polysaccharide. Tamarind seed polysaccharide could be used for controlled release of both water-soluble and water insoluble drugs. In this review summarised application of tamarind gum.
