  • Applications

CARBOXYMETHYL CELLULOSE

 

Carboxymethyl cellulose is a cellulose derivative, which thickens even if dissolved in ambient-temperature water. It is commercially available in several different viscosity grades.

CARRAGENAAN

 

Carrageenans, polysaccharides extracted from seaweeds, are widely used in the food industry for their gelling and stabilizing properties. For example, they are ideal for jellying milk as well as for stabilizing cocoa-flavoured milk.

EMULSIFIERS

 

Emulsifiers, mono-and diglycerides of fatty acids, sucrose esters and sucrose glycerides, whose function is to combine fats with water into a homogeneous mixture.

GUAR GUM

 

Guar gum is obtained from the seeds of guar, a plant growing principally in Pakistan and India. This powder dissolves in cold water.

LOCUST BEAN GUM

 

Locust bean gum is extracted from the seeds of the carob tree. This food additive thickens watery solutions and dissolves only in hot water.

PECTINS

 

Pectins are mainly extracted from the citrus fruit peels remaining after juice production; there are three distinct types of pectin, each having specific application characteristics. However, it is also possible to combine them in order to obtain end products endowed with particular softness, excellent spreadability and good stability over time.
