We take great pride as the gellan gum industry leader. We have extensive experience with this unique, nature-based ingredient.
Gellan gum is a polysaccharide produced by fermentation of a pure culture of Sphingomonas elodea. After the fermentation process, it is dried and milled into powder for use in a variety of applications.
Gellan gum is a soluble dietary fiber. This multifunctional gelling agent can be used alone or in combination with other products to produce a wide variety of interesting textures. Pretty great, right? Oh, and this mighty ingredient is extremely effective at low use levels in forming gels and is available in two types, high and low acyl content. Low acyl gellan gum products form firm, non-elastic, brittle gels, whereas high acyl gellan gum forms soft, very elastic, non-brittle gels. Varying the ratios of the two forms of gellan produces a wide variety of textures.
With the continued growth in consumer demand for clean-label products, gellan gum can help address the need for nature-based, organic-compliant*, Non-GMO Certified* ingredients in a variety of food applications.
