What is Curdlan Gum

Curdlan (PS140 polysaccharides), also known as curdlan gum, is a water-insoluble glucan produced by microorganisms and composed of β-1,3-glycosidic bonds.

It is a general term for a class of polysaccharides that form both hard and elastic thermally irreversible gels and thermally reversible gels when their suspensions are heated.

As a professional curdlan gum supplier in China, we can supply various types of curdlan gum and can guarantee favorable prices and stable supply.

Curdlan Properties


Curdlan gum has many special properties and can form thermally irreversible gels with edible and various industrial applications.


It can absorb water and swell at room temperature, insoluble in water, ethanol and other solutions, and can be dissolved in alkaline solutions with PH value greater than 11. After high temperature, it can absorb more than 50 times of aqueous solution and form a gel.

Low-temperature gel: When the suspension of curdlan gum is heated to 55~65℃ and then cooled to below 40℃, it can form a thermally reversible gel with low gel strength, and then heated at high temperature to form a high-temperature gel.

High-temperature gel: When the curdlan gum suspension is heated above 80℃, it can form a hot irreversible gel with high gel strength, which has good thermal stability and is stable under various heating conditions, and the strength is also relatively stable after freezing and thawing cycles.
