Xanthan gum ingredients are a light yellow to white flowable powder. It is a kind of extracellular acidic heteropolysaccharide produced by the fermentation process. Many people are unfamiliar to hear this name. Therefore, we will adopt the concept of xanthan gum and Let’s get to know nature.
Xanthan gum is a microbial extracellular polysaccharide with a wide range of functions, produced by Xanthomonas campestris using carbohydrates as the main raw material (such as corn starch) through fermentation engineering. Xanthan gum products have unique rheological properties, good water solubility, stability to heat, acid and alkali, and good compatibility with various salts. They are used as thickeners, suspending agents, emulsifiers, and stabilizers. , Can be widely used in more than 20 industries such as food, petroleum, medicine, etc. It is a microbial polysaccharide with a large scale and a wide range of uses in the world.
Xanthan gum ingredient is a 2:2:1 polysaccharide polymer compound composed of D-glucose, D-mannose and D-glucuronic acid, with a relative molecular mass of more than 1 million. The secondary structure of the xanthan gum component is that the side chain is wound in the opposite direction around the backbone of the main chain, which is maintained by hydrogen bonds to form a rod-like double helix structure.
Xanthan gum is easily soluble in cold and hot water. The solution is neutral, resistant to freezing and thawing, and insoluble in ethanol. Disperse and emulsify in water to become a stable hydrophilic viscous colloid. The wide range of functions and stable performance enables it to be used in many industries and have perfect effects.
Xanthan gum has good water solubility. It is often necessary to dissolve it before use. However, how to dissolve it is a problem that many users will face when using it. Poor dissolution will affect its effect. What is the correct dissolution method?
Xanthan gum components are completely dissolved in most water-based systems. Still, because of its strong hydrophilicity, if it is directly added to water and the stirring is insufficient, the outer layer will absorb water and expand into micelles, thereby preventing water from entering the inside. Layer, and then affect the play of the role, so we must pay attention to the correct use.
Generally, xanthan gum ingredients can dissolve in cold water, hot water is also good, but after heating to 90 degrees, it will significantly reduce the viscosity of the xanthan gum components. Therefore, before using xanthan gum products, you should have a good understanding of its usage and dosage, and at the same time, correctly master its dissolution method so that it can be used and played better.
