Gellan Gum is a high-molecular weight carbohydrate. It is a naturally occurring polysaccharide industrially produced in a pure culture fermentation by the microorganism Sphingomonas elodea. Following fermentation, the broth is sterilized to prevent bacterial contamination, and Gellan Gum is recovered by precipitation with alcohol, drying, and milling.
Gumix International supplies Gellan Gum grades that are readily soluble in hot or cold water. Gellan Gum forms gels at very low gum use level and has excellent fluid gel rheological properties. It is compatible with other plant hydrocolloids as well as carbohydrates and proteins.
The uses of Gellan Gum depends on its effective gelling, stabilizing, texturizing, suspending, film forming, thickening, stability to heat and acidity, syneresis control, flavor release, and good mouthfeel properties.
There are several grades of low acyl (LA) and high acyl (HA) Gellan Gum available. Gumix International’s Gellan Gum grades are Kosher, Halal, GMO-free, gluten-free, and vegan. Gumix International also supplies Gellan Gum grades that are compliant with Natural-Organic Program (NOP) and U.S. Pharmacopeia/National Formulary (USP/NF).
