Gum and Stablizer



Gelatin, 2 type, Type B, Derived from alkaline or lime processed material, pH range 7.0-9.4, Type A, Derived from acid processed material, pH range 4.8-5.5, Glycine account 1/3 of all amino acid in gelatin, Specialty, Gives high quality of gel in dilute solution with a clean "melt in mouth " texture, At high concentration , gives elastic gum like texture which slowly dissolve in the mouth, Effective emulsifying & Foaming agent, As a polyelectrolyte
