Gellan Gum


A natural, environmentally-friendly fermented ingredient for use in dairy and vegan recipes


Gellan gum is a natural gelling, suspending, and stabilizing agent. It is a polysaccharide produced by natural fermentation from sphingomonas elodea, a single-cell organism found on lily pads.
