Gellan Gum Origin:

  • Gellan is an anionic polysaccharide, which is produced by Sphingomonas paucimobilis bacterium(ATCC31461) through aerobic fermentation. Purified by alcohol precipitation. 
  • In 1978, in CP Kelco Kaneko and Kang found a water soluble polymer – gellan 
  • In 1988, Japan approved gellan gum for use in food products. 
  • In 1992,FDA approved the use of gellan gum as an food additive. It has E-number E 418.


CINOGEL BIOTECH,a professional gellan gum manufacturer in China which foucs on both high acyl & low acyl gellan gum;
It is extremely effective at low use levels and is available in two forms.
  • High Acyl Gellan Gum forms soft,very elastic gels;
  • Low Acyl Gellan Gum forms firm,brittle gels.


  • Forming gel ,low dosage(at lest 0.05%) forms gel
  • Excellent stability(PH ,Heat)
  • No protein interaction
  • Fluid gel(suspension)
  • High clarity
  • Flexibility in melting and setting temp.

Gel Formation


  • Poor dispersion will result in incomplete hydration and loss of gum functionality.


  • Blending with dispersants such as sugar,sodium citrate etc.
  • Stirring or starting the agitator before adding.
  • Using well dispersion products such as KELCOGEL or CINOGEL GELLAN



• Concentration of ions in
solution will affect the
hydration temp. such as
calcium , Sodium
• Low acyl gellan gum
requires a temperature of
75 ℃(1670F) to fully
hydrate the gum.
• High acyl gellan gum
hydrates between 70℃ and
80 ℃(1580F and 1760F)
even in relatively high ion

Gel formation  

Gel formation


   In the absence of added      
   cations, low acyl gellan
   gum gels set at around
  25℃ (770F), where high
  acyl sets at around 65
  ℃ (1490F). With added
  calcium or sodium ions,
  the setting temperature

Gel Texture
Gel Texture

     • Low acyl –-hard brittle gel
     • High acyl—soft elastic gel
     • Blending two types with
        vary ratios a wide variety
        of textures can be obtained.
     • It is possible to obtain
       textures close to those of
       carrageenan and gelatin gels
