Key Market Trends

High Demand For Gelatin Gum Among Food Manufacturers

Gelatin differs from other types of hydrocolloids, as it is derived from collagen, an animal protein. Collagen is extracted from cows, pigs, or fish, and the properties of gelatin are affected by the source, age, and type of collagen. Gellan gum is an important hydrocolloid in the food industry and is widely used as a food additive in health supplements, due to its high content of protein and amino acid. The hydrocolloidal nature of gellan gum has numerous applications in confectionery products (for imparting chewiness, texture, and foam stabilization), jelly deserts (for creaminess, fat reduction, and mouthfeel), dairy products (for stabilization and texture), and meat products (for water-binding). Other applications of gellan gum are in fruit toppings for pastry, instant gravy, instant sauces and soups, and edible food films for confectionery products. It is also used as a stabilizer in ice cream, cream cheese, and cottage cheese.
