Xanthan Gum | Hydrophilic Colloids | CP Kelco

Xanthan Gum

CP Kelco Xanthan Gum  function as hydrophilic colloids to thicken and stabilize emulsions, foams and suspensions. This unique combination of properties allows xanthan gum products to perform beyond the limits of many other commercially available hydrocolloids. Their main functions are to suspend and stabilize the dispersion of solids, immiscible liquids, and gases in aqueous systems. For example, solids are suspended in oil drilling fluids, immiscible liquids in salad dressings and gases in whipped toppings. Each system consists of a continuous phase (water) and a dispersed phase (solid particle or air bubbles). CP Kelco is the market leader in the manufacturing and application development of xanthan gum.
