Where to buy Gellan Gum?

Gellan Gum is a safe food additive, it has E number E418.

It is made by fermentation, an age-old process for producing foods & beverages,Gellan Gum is a versatile ingredients for all kinds of formulations.

In the production process, naturally occurring plant-based cultures found on lily pads varieties are fermented with sugar and water.

CINOGEL gellan gum powder, 100% pure and natural powder, is used at very low use levels(usually less than 0.1%) in foods and beverage to provide stabilization,texture and suspension of nutrients and other ingredients.

Types of Gellan Gum:

Typical applications are as following:
  • Milk drinks
  • Yogurt and yogurt drinks
  • Protein drinks
  • Plant based drinks
  • Juice drinks
  • Bakery fillings
  • Candies

Types of gel achievable

1. Firm, brittle gel – Using low acyl gellan gum in very low concentrations – from just 0.1% – firm and brittle gels can be made. These gels are crystal clear, making them very appealing visually.

2. Fluid gel – By agitating low acyl gellan gum gels as they cool, fluid gels can be created. They have apparent low viscosity, yet have remarkable suspending properties, successfully suspending particles such as coloured spheres, herbs, and even gases.

3. Elastic gel – By incorporating high acyl gellan, a far more flexible result can be achieved. The resultant gel can be made into thin sheets that can be rolled or folded.

4. Spheres and strands – a pure, gellan gum solution can be dropped into an ion rich water solution to form gelled spheres or strands.

In a word, gellan gum has a number of functional properties that can be readily modified.
