CP Kelco’s extensive portfolio of products includes brands that offer consistently high performance in food and beverage applications.  These products are most often used for viscosity modification, thickening, suspension, stabilization and gelation.

GENU® Pectin – Polysaccharide derived from naturally occurring structural components in fruits and vegetables. CP Kelco pectin is made primarily from citrus peels and sugar beets.

NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber – Made from intact citrus peels, this next-generation functional fiber offers gelling, thickening, stabilizing and water-binding capabilities and may be used to replace starch, eggs or oil in many recipes. Key applications include fruit-flavored drinks, drinking yogurts, dressings, condiments, sauces, bakery, meats and soups.

KELTROL® Xanthan Gum – Produced by commercial fermentation of the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris. Widely used for thickening and stabilizing.

KELCOGEL® Gellan Gum – Polysaccharide that creates an innovative, highly pseudoplastic “fluid gel” suspension system which functions with minimal viscosity.

GENU® Carrageenan – Sulphated polysaccharides extracted from certain species of red seaweed. Carrageenan allows formulators to create textures ranging from free-flowing liquids to solid gels.

CEKOL® Cellulose Gum – Highly purified, cold water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose that offers a cost-effective means to thicken, stabilize and add viscosity.

High protein NPD and the role for hydrocolloids

CP Kelco notes that there is a major trend towards protein fortification, but this presents new technical challenges for product developers. “One of the key trends that we see happening right now relates to alternative proteins beyond soy, including pulse, oat and potato. So one of the issues relating to stabilizing these types of products relates to solubility in applications, as well as issues with mouthfeel. If not done correctly, it could lead to issues with mouthfeel, quality issues,” notes Kyle Bailey of CP Kelco. Beverage concepts featuring stabilizing systems included a cocktail with fruit preps stabilized with pectin, with orange pieces suspended through the use of gellan gum. Another cocktail is creatively stabilized with gellan gum, so a dual phase can be created in the beverage.

Hydrocolloids for vegetable-based protein beverages

CP Kelco presented Fermented Gold, For Gut’s Sake and Fruity Fixation samples at IFT 2018. The latter featured the suspension of pineapple slivers provided by KELCOGEL HM-B [E] gellan gum, which is non-GMO Project Verified. The protein protection at a low pH is achieved through CEKOL LVD cellulose gum. Wanda Jurlina at CP Kelco spoke about the potential for hydrocolloids for vegetable-based protein beverages. “We have been working in the area of plant-based proteins for many years now. Beverages have really taken off and we have all kinds of protein, from pea to almond, a whole variety of nuts, as well as traditional soy products. What we are now seeing is going beyond beverages; we are going into cultured products. People are looking for more ways to deliver these healthy proteins that consumers want,” she notes.

The GM Free and Reduced Sugar Trends

Hydrocolloids, such as pectin, cellulose gum, xanthan gum and gellan gum, offer formulators the opportunity to formulate a low-sugar beverage that better represents full sugar products. These biopolymer products enhance mouthfeel, make the flavour more pleasant and reduce the aftertaste of high intensity sweeteners. CP Kelco has conducted laboratory tests to determine how hydrocolloids affect both rheological and sensory measures in beverages. These tests have shown conclusively that viscosity and density are integral parameters influencing the oral sensations of body and mouthfeel and that these parameters can be manipulated to achieve a desired outcome.

Innovative Roles for Hydrocolloids in Beverage Systems

In the food industry, the multifunctional gelling agent gellan gum can be used at low levels in a wide variety of products that require gelling, texturizing, stabilizing, suspending, film-forming and structuring. Or, gellan gum can be combined with other thickening agents such as starch, guar gum, locust bean gum, cellulose derivatives or xanthan gum to produce a wide variety of interesting textures. A look at some trends in hydrocolloid application.
