The objective of the research was to develop a process to obtain powdered mucilage from waste or residues generated after the mechanical separation of juice or pulp from the Sanky fruit. The residue was exposed to an aqueous-alkaline extraction process, evaluating the effect of time, temperature and pH on the viscosity of the extract obtained. Subsequently, the viscous extract was dryed by atomization, using 5-10% w/v maltodextrin DE10 as encapsulant; which allowed obtaining a powder additive with rheological properties similar to gum arabic, commonly used as a stabilizer and processing aid in the food and pharmaceutical industry.
