What Is Gellan Gum E418?

Gellan gum is manufactured by a fermentation process that is available in two forms, high acyl (HA) and low acyl (LA). It is widely used in the food industry and in certain scientific and industrial applications.  Low acyl gellan gum  is a carbohydrate secreted by a bacterium (Sphingomonas elodea) that, when in the presence of salts or acid, forms very clear, clean, and brittle gels.

As one of the professional Low Acyl Gellan Gum suppliers, exporters in China, Gino is dedicated to supplying superior gellan gum products from reliable gellan gum manufacturers. Meanwhile, we can offer tailor-made solutions perfectly matched to your needs.

LA Gellan Gum Properties

  • Low acyl gellan gum is best dispersed in cold water and is improved by the presence of sugar, glycerol, alcohol, or oils, and is promoted by using hard water.
  • Hydration occurs between 90 and 95°C with a pH >3.9. Hydration is inhibited by the presence of sodium and calcium, but 0.1-0.3% sodium citrate helps.
  • Low acyl gellan gum will snapset, meaning that it quickly sets when under its gelling temperature (60°C).
  • It's gelling is promoted by calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and acids.

LA Gellan Gum Benefits

  1. Excellent Acid/Heat Stability
  2. Clear Gels and Brittle Texture
  3. Quick Suspending Time
  4. Heat Irreversible
  5. Outstanding Flavor Release
  6. Good Moisture Stability
  7. Low Dosage

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.

LA Gellan Gum Uses

  • What is gellan gum used for?

1.. LA Gellan Gum as Gelling Agent:

The gels formed by this type of gellan gum is a clear or transparent type with brittle texture.

It is widely applied in Jellies, Jams, Desserts/Pie Fillings, Meat Products, and Solid Air Freshener Gel.

(By applying LA gellan gum in jellies and solid air-fresheners instead of carrageenan, the water-out problem could be avoided.)

2.. LA Gellan Gum as Suspending Agent:

LA gellan gum is a perfect suspending agent for beverages due to its special suspension properties and high transparency.

It's widely used in herbal drinks, such as Aloe Vera and Chia or Basil Seed Drinks.

Note: The suspension system formed is heat and acid-stable (pH3.8-7.5 condition applicable).

3.. LA Gellan Gum in Tissue Culture 

Used as Agar substitute in Culture media and other bacteriological applications, Plant tissue culture.
