In latest winemaker mag  a few articles mention the use of gum Arabic to improve  body of wines. Is this a useful tool?  I thought there were better  stuff nowadays to use.

I find iit too noticeable even at lower doses for most wines
I think it's best use is for tank carbonated sparkling wine , it improves the bubbles.

For improving wines body and mouth feel I prefer yeast based products such as noblesse and biolees.

I'll echo Zac on this one.  Some people are sensitive to it's impact on wine.  My wife can pick it out at low doses.
