KELCOGEL® DFA Gellan Gum
High acyl gellan gum gets a gold star for suspension. It has the unique ability to form a fluid gel to add stabilization and prevent phase separation. It also plays well with other texturants to truly tailor mouthfeel. But sometimes formulators want to use fewer ingredients to get the job done. That’s why we developed KELCOGEL® DFA Gellan Gum.
DFA stands for dual function in alternative beverages, meaning it is a single-ingredient solution that does the work of two. It provides suspension at low use levels and a refreshing, dairy-like mouthfeel. It helps to solve separation of protein, minerals, vitamins or cocoa over shelf life. It can also help simplify product labeling by reducing your total number of ingredients. Its dual functionality may even help with cost savings. For example, it delivers the functionality of both standard gellan gum and locust bean gum together. Produced by fermentation, KELCOGEL® Gellan Gum is very easy to use and compatible with standard processes.
