KELTROL® Xanthan Gum
Available from CP Kelco
The standard for thickening and stabilizing, KELTROL xanthan gum, due to its molecular structure, has excellent pH stability – down to pH 2.8.
KELTROL’s pseudoplastic flow behavior provides high viscosities at low shear rates to improve suspension and emulsification, and low viscosities at high shear rates give good flow properties when poured. The slight increase in viscosity resulting from very low use levels imparts the sensation of enhanced body.
KELTROL’s high degree of pseudoplasticity means the beverage will have body, but not mask the flavor system, resulting in excellent flavor ‘pop’ as designed.
