Features of Gellan Gum High Acyl:

1.Very low dosage can help to for "fluid gels" to be as suspension or stabilizing agent in beverages: 
2.Excellent acid stability or wide pH application range: 
3.Can help to form elastic gels: 
4.Help the blended beverage with a thicker mouth feel: 
5.Good combination with modied starch to be used as thickener; 
6.Good compatibility with other ingredients and hydrocollids.


Typical Procedure of Gellan Gum Application:

1. Make gellan gum dispersed in cool deionised water by stirring; 
2. Heat solution 1. to 80 Celcius Degree; 
3. Add cations into solution 2.; 
4. Cool down the solution 3. to certain temperatures, stabilizing / suspending fuctions avaiable.


Dispersion:

To disperse the product without lumps: Premix the powder with the other dry ingredients, and pour the preparation into the liquid under efficient stirring. Continue stirring to obtain a complete dispersion.


Dissolution/Hydratioin:

The dissolution of the product depends on the medium and the process: it is improved by heat treatment (time, temperature), shear stress(stirrer, homogenizer). A complete dissolution can be rapidly obtained by boiling for 5-10min or at around 85-90℃ for 20-30min with sequestrants(Sequestrants such as sodium citrate may be required for hydration in hard water).


Typical Applications:

High Acyl Gellan Gum provides fluid gelation, suspension or stabilisation to food and beverage (including dairy products) products. 
Some Specific Applications: 
1. Acid fruit juice; 
2. Fruit Pulps Suspending Beverage; 
3. Dairy Drinks such as netural milk, youghurd, cereal milk, soybean milk, fruits pulps suspending milk beverages; 
4. Roughage Drinks; 
5. Vegetable protein beverage.
