Xanthan Gum

Keltrol®, Kelzan®, Xantural®

Product description

Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide and is mainly used to thicken and stabilize emulsions, foams and suspensions. It is produced by a fermentation process and is identical to the naturally occurring polysaccharide by xanthomonas campestris in composition and structure.

Xanthan gum is characterized by its pseudoplasticity. It provides high viscosity at low shear and a good flow behavior under shear stress at the same time for example at pumping or pouring even at low concentrations.

Our Keltrol®, Kelzan® and Xantural® brands from our supplier CP KELCO cover a wide range of possible applications in the industrial and consumer fields.

In food applications the ingredient is known as E415.
