Curdlan Gum is a high molecular weight polysaccharide obtained from pure-culture fermentation from a non-pathogenic and non-toxicogenic strain of alcaligenes faecalis. Curdlan gum can form different types of gels under different conditions: When the aqueous suspension of curdlan gum is heated to more than 85℃ and then cooled, high solid gel namely thermal irreversible gel, can be generated. The gel will not liquefy even if it is heated to 120℃; After heating to 55℃ and cooling, a low solid gel, namely thermally reversible gel, is formed. Generally, the high solid form of the gel is mainly popular use Curdlan improves the water retention, elasticity and freeze-thaw stability of the food. Its functional uses as a Firming agent, Gelling agent, Stabilizer, Thickener. The gel of curdlan gum has strong stability to high temperature. It is stable in food processing like cooking, frying, microwave and other high temperature conditions. The water holding capacity of curdlan gum in food will help to bind more water molecules in various applications like meat products, fish products, jellies, tofu, bakery, frozen foods, salad dressing and also in biopharmaceutical, petroleum industry, Household products, Agriculture pesticide, Personal Care: Toothpaste and Cosmetics application.
