This unique combination of properties allows xanthan gum products to perform beyond the limits of many other commercially available hydrocolloids. Their main functions are to suspend and stabilize the dispersion of solids, immiscible liquids, and gases in aqueous systems. For example, solids are suspended in oil drilling fluids, immiscible liquids in salad dressings and gases in whipped toppings. Each system consists of a continuous phase water and a dispersed phase solid particle or air bubbles. CP Kelco is the market leader in the manufacturing and application development of xanthan gum.

The medical term for this condition is dysphagia. Dysphagia affects more people than we think, especially with our growing aging population.
CP Kelco is proud to play a part in the management of dysphagia, helping people to enjoy food and beverages again with less risk of choking.
Manufacturers use our ingredients to create three kinds of dysphagia diet texture modifications: We help thicken liquids so they flow more slowly, which gives the muscles more time to react and protect the airway. Fluids have always been an essential part of any diet — up to eight glasses of liquids per day is recommended.
In the past, these liquids would have been thickened with starch, which had a chalky after-taste as well as a tendency to solidify and cause bloat. We offer nature-based ingredient solutions instead and can ensure the patient is receiving a tastier option. We help with the creation of soft foods. The innovation in this fast-growing segment is amazing! We help with formulas for enteral tube nutrition. Exciting progress is being made with plant-based protein formulas that use organic-compliant ingredients for increased tolerance and more complete nutrition.
Available in two types, low acyl or high acyl, gellan gum can produce a wide variety of textures and provides excellent suspension of insoluble ingredients. It can often support organic label claims too.
