Xanthan Gum


Food and Beverage Applications

Xanthan Gum is a high molecular weight anionic polysaccharide polymer produced by the fermentation of starch by Xanthomonas Campestris. It has high stability, resistance to acid and alkali, high salt environment, high temperature and low temperature freezing, anti-biodegradation, and strong anti-pollution ability. Xanthan Gum is widely used in food, personal care products, pharmaceuticals acting as thickener, suspension agent, emulsifier and stabilizer and etc.

Gellan Gum, Nutrier GL, Cosmetic and Personal Care

Gellan gum is a water-soluble anionic polysaccharide produced by Pseudomonas elodea, which is composed of a repeating unit of monomers, tetrasaccharide, that are two residues of D-glucose and one of each residues of D-glucuronic acid and Lrhamnose.

Curdlan, Nutrier KG, Food and Beverage

Curdlan is a high molecular weight polysaccharide consisting of β-1,3-linked glucose units, produced by pure-culture fermentation from a non-pathogenic and non-toxicogenic strain of Agrobacterium biovar 1 (identified as Alcaligenes faecalis var. myxogenes at the time of discovery) or Agrobacterium radiobacter. Curdlan consists of β-(1,3)-linked glucose residues and has the unusual property of forming an elastic gel upon heating its aqueous suspension.
