Diutan gum is a polysaccharide which is used for the stabilization of emulsions, foams and suspensions. It is obtained by fermentation and is similar in the chemical structure of the xanthan gum.
Compared with xanthan gum, it is characterized by an even stronger pseudoplasticity. Already at very low use levels, high viscosities and good flow properties under shear as pumping or pouring can be achieved. Another outstanding feature is its excellent alkali resistance.
Biesterfeld Spezialchemie offers diutan gum from CP KELCO under the name Kelco-Vis™ DG.
