Gellan gum is available in high-acyl and low-acyl grades, which are distinguished by further processing. Both types of gellan gum are exudates derived from the fermentation process of certain microorganisms.
High-acyl gellan gum – This type, also referred to as native gellan, is recovered after fermentation through a process called alcohol precipitation. High-acyl gellan gum yields a soft, elastic gel after heating and cooling. This gel is particularly versatile due to its thermal reversibility and suspension properties.
Low-acyl gellan gum – Like high-acyl, this grade also solubilizes when heated. But once cooled, it forms firm, thermally stable gels. Low-acyl gellan gum requires calcium to produce maximum gel strength.
Tilley Distribution is your top choice for both HA and LA gellan products.
