Gum tragacanth is a viscous, odorless, tasteless, water-soluble mixture of polysaccharides obtained from sap which is drained from the root of the plant and dried. It absorbs water to become a gel, which can be stirred into a paste. The gum contains an alkaloid that has historically been used as an herbal remedy for such conditions as cough and diarrhea.As a mucilage or paste it has been used as a topical treatment for burns.
