Gellan Gum Properties

Gellan gum is a water soluble, off-white powder. It has a molecular weight greater than 70,000 daltons with 95 percent above 500,000 daltons. It forms gels when positively charged ions (i.e., cations) are added. Thus, the thickness and texture of gellan gum in various products can be controlled by manipulating the addition of potassium, magnesium, calcium, and/or sodium salts. In the same way, its melting temperature can be modified to either be below or above 100° C.

Gellan Gum Structure

Gellan gum is an exopolysaccharide, the chemical structure of gellan gum consist of a backbone of repeating unit of β-d-glucose (d-Glc), l-rhamnose (l-Rha), and d-glucuronic acid (d-GlcA) and two acyl groups, acetate and glycerate, bound to the glucose residue adjacent to glucuronic acid. The composition of the three main constituents is approximately 60% glucose, 20% rhamnose, and 20% glucuronic acid.
