Hydrocolloids with outstanding properties

Jungbunzlauer’s Biogums product group offers two hydrocolloids, Xanthan Gum and Gellan Gum (TayaGel®). With more than 30 years of experience, Xanthan Gum has been the key product of this group for decades. Our new product Gellan Gum complements the Jungbunzlauer hydrocolloid portfolio from thickeners to gelling agents.

We are offering the highest possible quality of xanthan gum with respect to the application in the three market segments: food, technical and oil applications. It can be used as a thickener and stabiliser in food applications such as salad dressings and sauces. However, it can also be used in household products such as cleaners due to its stability towards pH and salt concentrations. The oil drilling market uses xanthan gum as a stabiliser in the cleaning process of drilling holes.

With TayaGel® HA, Jungbunzlauer offers the highest possible quality of high acyl (HA) gellan gum with outstanding stabilising and gelling properties. Gellan Gum is produced by the bacterium Sphingomonas elodea. Dissolved in hot water, it offers exceptional stabilising properties even at very low concentration. At higher concentration, it forms gels with a soft, elastic and flexible texture. As bio-based stabilising and gelling agent, it offers a broad range of applications in beveragesfood, and personal care.
