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.

relax , have a glass of wine

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.
