Gellan Gum Description

Gellan Gum is a high molecular weight polysaccharide produced by the micro-organism Pseudomonas elodea.

This organism was found during an extensive screening programme seeking naturally occurring hydrocolloids with useful properties.

Gellan gum is a multi-functional gelling agent that can produce a wide variety of interesting textures.

It is extremely effective at low use levels and is available in two forms.
High acyl gellan gum forms soft, elastic gels; Low acyl gellan gum forms firm, brittle gels.
