Hydrocolloid Manufacturers | Applications Guide

Water-soluble gums are beneficial in many fields, including food & beverage, agriculture, adhesives, biotechnology, ceramics, cosmetics, explosives, paper, textiles, and texturization, among many others. It is almost impossible to spend a day without directly or indirectly enjoying their qualities.

Foods & Beverages

Hydrocolloids have a wide array of functional properties in Foods & Beverages, including thickening, gelling, emulsifying, stabilization, coating and etc. 

Hydrocolloids have a profound impact on food properties when used at levels ranging from a few parts per million for carrageenan in heat-treated dairy products to high levels of acacia gum, starch, or gelatin in jelly confectionery. 


The use of hydrocolloid (especially agar) in biotechnology/bacteriology is one of the most important uses and requires strict physical-chemical control,

as well as the absence of hemolytic substances and what is more important and difficult, the absence of any bacterial inhibitors.

Other Industrial Applications

Hydrocolloids are high molecular-weight polysaccharides derived from plants and algae or synthesized by microorganisms.

They are used as viscosity control agents in cosmetics and water-based personal care applications,

due to their thickening and gelling properties and water-binding ability.
