Gellan gum is a natural fermentation-derived polysaccharide widely used in many food, beverage, personal care, home care and industrial applications. This highly versatile, multi-functional hydrocolloid delivers superior functionalities as a suspension, stabilization, structuring, texturizing and encapsulation agent. Compared to other hydrocolloids, gellan gum is best at suspending insoluble particles such as fruit pulp, fortifying minerals, grains, nuts and plant proteins without imparting a heavy mouthfeel. Typical usage levels are low, offering competitive cost-in-use advantages.
We offer a comprehensive gellan gum product portfolio, including both the high acyl (HA) and low acyl (LA) types.
A natural fermentation-derived biogum, xanthan gum is used to thicken and stabilize emulsions, foams and suspensions. Xanthan gum imparts excellent stability in oil-in-water emulsions. It has high viscosity at low shear rates, stabilizing suspensions yet providing excellent flow properties.
We offer a complete portfolio of xanthan gum products, including clarified xanthan, for food and beverages, cosmetics, personal care and industrial applications.
Like gellan and xanthan, welan is also a natural polysaccharide produced by a sustainable fermentation process. Welan is a highly efficient thickening agent. It provides high viscosity at low use levels and demonstrates excellent stability under high temperature, extreme pH and high salt conditions. Application experts are increasingly experimenting with welan as a superior substitute to xanthan gum in many food & beverage applications (e.g. dysphagia foods).
Pectin exists naturally in most fruits and vegetables. Apple pomace and citrus peels are the most widely used source of raw material.
DSM Hydrocolloids offers a complete pectin portfolio, including high methoxyl (HM), low methoxyl (LM), and low methoxyl amidated (LMA).
DSM Hydrocolloids also offers blend solutions for food and beverage applications.
