Gellan Gum, E418, CAS no.71010-52-1, a bacterial exopolysaccharide, produced by aerobic submerged fermentation from Sphingomonas elodea. Function as emulsifier, suspension agent, thickener, stabilizer, gelling agent, tissue culture medium, film former and lubricant. Gellan gum is widely used in food, such as jelly, white sugar, beverages, dairy products, jam products, bread padding, surface lubricant, candy, icing and seasonings. With good gelling property, gellan gum has gradually replaced the use of Agar and Carrageenan at present. As a professional Gellan Gum supplier, we supply High Acyl Gellan Gum (white powder) and Low Acyl Gellan Gum(dark yellow powder) food grade.

Food Grade: Low Acyl and high Acyl Gellan Gum powder used in Dessert Jellies, Chocolate Milk, Soy Milk, Fruit Juices, Sauces and Dressings, Yogurts, Confectionary, Fruit Preparations, Spreadable jam, Low sugar jams, Bake stable jam.The Characteristic Of Low Acyl Gellan Gum.
|1. Very Low dosage, form gel at 0.05-0.25% concentration||Low Acyl Gellan Gum is a very effective gelling agent|
|2. Excellent thermal stability and acid stability||1.Little effect to gel strength after heat sterilization.
2.Its powder form allows longer term of use and long-term stability even under acid condition.
|3.Sodium or potassium irons can form thermal reversible gel, while Magnesium or calcium irons form thermal un-reversible gels||Can be made into thermal reversible and thermal un-reversible gels|
|4．Good combination with other hydrocolloids||Adjustable gel elasticity and rigidity|
|5．Good compatibility with other ingredients||Can be widely used in many formulations|
|6．Can form gel between pH 3.5~7.0||Can form high quality gels and have good gel strength in acid to neutral food formulations.|
|7.Anti-aging function||Prevent aging and viscosity raising of starch|
|8.Not easy lead to enzymolysis||Enabling flexibility in the manufacturing process, very suitable for Microbiological media and plant media.|
