Hydrocolloids

Innovations based on renewable resources

HPMC

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a cellulose ether. Cellulose is a substantial structural component of the cell wall of plants and can be considered as one of the most important biopolymers in nature.

Key properties:

  • Reversible thermal gelation
  • Film Formation

HPMC

MCG

Microcrystalline cellulose gel is a gel forming agent which is co-processed from microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and a water soluble thickener such as e.g. carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or xanthan. Microcrystallinecellulose is a specially treated cellulose where the amorphous parts of cellulose are removed.

Key properties:

  • Anti-settling agent
  • Thixotropy
  • Heat resistance

MCG

Pectin

Pectin is a versatile biopolymer which can be found in the cell walls of fruits, especially citrus fruits and apples. Pectins are complex polysaccharides that chemically consists of partial methyl esters of polygalacturonic acid and their salts (sodium, potassium, calcium and ammonia).

Key properties:

  • Natural
  • Versatile gel properties
  • Versatile gel activation

Pectin

Alginate

Alginates – the salts of alginic acid. Alginic acid is a natural biopolymer extracted from different types of brown seaweed. The macromolecule is a linear polysaccharide consisting of blocks of guluronic- and mannuronic acid.

Key properties:

  • Natural & versatile
  • Gelation via controlled ion-exchange without heating
  • Formation of temperature stable and water insoluble gels
  • Film formation
