What are Hydrocolloids? 

Hydrocolloids are functional carbohydrates used in many foods to enhance their shelf-life and quality. These ingredients are used to modify the viscosity and texture of food products like ice cream, salad dressings, gravies, processed meats, and beverages. They are chiefly used to modify the rheology of the food system, specifically viscosity and texture. Some are used alone while others are used in synergistic combinations.

Brenntag offers a variety of hydrocolloids including: 

  • Carrageenan Gum
  • Cellulose Gums
  • Guar Gum
  • Gum Arabic
  • Locust Bean Gum
  • Pectin
  • Xanthan Gum
