Gely Xan is xanthan gum, a natural polysaccharide of high molecular weight, produced by the fermentation of glucose with the microorganism Xanthomonas campestris. This product is built by D-glucose monomers. It appears as a white to light yellow powder. Gely Xan is soluble both in cold and hot water, stable to a wide interval of acidity and resists freezing and thawing processes. The effect of temperatures, pH and high salt concentrations on xanthan gum dispersions is very low. Gely Xan has synergy with other hydrocolloids, especially galactomannans with which it forms gels. It can be used in ketchup, salad dressings, mayonnaise, ice creams, dairy desserts, and low-calorie products.
