In this study, it was aimed to compare theological properties of rice cake batter and quality characteristics of rice cakes prepared using different gums with or without an emulsifier blend. Rice cake batter was formulated with different gums (xanthan gum, guar gum, locust bean gum, kappa-carrageenan, hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), xanthan-guar gum blend and xanthan-kappa-carrageenan gum blend) and an emulsifier blend (Purawave (TM)). As a control cake, batters containing no gum and emulsifier blend were used.
