KELZAN® Xanthan Gum

  • Overview
  • Properties

KELZAN® Xanthan Gum is produced by a fermentation process. Its pseudoplastic flow behavior provides high viscosities at low shear rates to improve suspension and emulsion stabilization. Conversely, it provides low viscosities at high shear rates to give good flow properties when poured or pumped. Xanthan gum imparts excellent stability to oil-in-water emulsions by preventing the oil droplets from coalescing. It is also stable across a wide pH range allowing its use in a broad array of industrial formulations.

  • Stability in both acidic and alkaline solutions
  • Compatible and stable in solutions with high levels of salts
CAS Registry Number: 11138-66-2 E-Number: E415
