    Product Overview

    Gellan gum is a functional gelling agent that can transform liquids into a gel state. It exists in two forms - high acyl and low acyl. Gellan gum is an off-white hygroscopic powder. Gellan gum has a density of 1.5-1.6 g/cm3. High acyl gellan gum dissolves rapidly in water to form a clear solution when heated. As the solution cools, gellan gum begins to gel, forming a firm, elastic, and clear gel. Low acyl gellan gum forms brittle, non-elastic gels. Gellan gum is widely used in food processing applications.

    The main application of Gellan Gum
    • Gellan gum in food processing is utilized for creating gel-based foods like jelly, jam, pudding, pastry, and ice cream, enhancing their viscosity, stability, and mouthfeel for a unique gel texture.
    • Gellan gum in heavy cream acts as a stabilizer and thickener, enhancing texture and consistency for a richer culinary experience.
    • In cosmetics and personal care products, gellan gum functions as a thickener and stabilizer, aiding in providing viscosity and texture for smoother application.
    • Gellan gum in pharmaceutical preparations is employed as a coating material for capsules, a suspending agent for oral suspensions, and a filler for capsules.
    • Gellan gum in industrial applications, such as printing, paints, paper converting, and varnishes, serves as a thickener and binder.
