Multiple functional properties with consistent quality

Hydrocolloids are polysaccharides of high molecular weight extracted from plants and algae or produced by microbial synthesis. A hydrocolloid is a suspension of particles in water where the particles are molecules that bind to water and to one another. The particles slow the flow of the liquid or stop it entirely, solidifying into a gel.

Hydrocolloids can be applied to many food applications and categories. They are widely used in prepared frozen meals, sauce & dressings, processed meat; frozen desserts, various dairy products, beverages, fruit preserves (jam & jelly) and confectionery. Hydrocolloids have a wide array of functional properties in foods including; thickening, gelling, emulsifying, stabilization and coating. Cargill is a hydrocolloid supplier for multiple industries.
