HA Gellan Gum Properties

  • High Acyl Gellan Gum is white to tan powder with lighter density compared with low acyl gellan gum.
  • The setting temperature for gelling for High Acyl Gellan Gum is 50C-60C and the gels are elastic.
  • High Acyl Gellan Gum is not so sensitive to Calcium ions so it could be pre-mixed with kations.
  • Solutions made by High Acyl Gellan Gum is not transparent as Low Acyl Gellan Gum but it is protein stable.

Gellan Gum Structure

The molecular structure of gellan gum is a straight chain based on repeating glucose, rhamnose and glucuronic acid units.
In its native, or high acyl form, two acyl substituents --- acetate and glycerate are present.
Both substituents are located on the same glucose residue and, on average, there is one glycerate per repeat and one acetate per every two repeats.
The high acyl form produces soft, elastic, non-brittle gels.

Gellan Gum Uses

High Acyl Gellan Gum in Food:

The solution made by high acyl gellan gum is not so clear and with lower transparency.
The viscosity of high acyl gellan gum is higher, so it can be used as thickening agent. For those products who need a thicker mouth feel, we recommend high acyl gellan gum.

  • Protein Drinks & Fruit/Vegetable Juice:

High acyl gellan gum is recommended as a suspension agent in milk beverages, vegetable protein drinks, fruit/vegetable juice and so on. It will enhance the mouthfeel of the beverage and keep the beverage stabilizing. Especially for those where insoluble particles or fresh pulps in beverages need to be suspended, Gellan Gum HA is a perfect stabilizer.

  • Dairy Beverage:

Gellan gum for neutral pH UHT and HTST Dairy Beverage.

  • Meat:

In meat products, Gellan gum HA will enhance the elastic characteristics when combined with Konjac Gum and Carrageenan. 

Its suggested dosage is 0.02-0.05%.

It can also be combined with other hydrocolloids to give different textures and mouth feel.
