  •  The word ‘hydrocolloids’ or water soluble gums means range of polysaccharides and proteins that are widely used in a variety of industrial sectors to perform a number of functions including thickening and gelling aqueous solutions, stabilizing foams, emulsions and dispersions, inhibiting ice and sugar crystal formation and the controlled release of
    flavors, and so on


 Food Industry

  • Gelling fruit systems, stabilizing dressings and sauces , protein stabilization in acidified dairy beverages, water binding in meat, stabilizing ice cream .
  • International organizations such as the FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission
    and the EU are seeking to harmonies regulations for the use of hydrocolloids, but differences still exist. Consequently,
    relevant legislation should be consulted before using hydrocolloids in food products.
