Thickners

Sodium Caseinate

Sodium caseinate contains various trace elements for human body. It is used not only as a kind of excellent food additive with high protein and nutrition, but also as a resource of trace element for human body. In addition, sodium caseinate is also a kind of strong emulsifying stabilizer and thickening agent with fine affinity, air function and great value of nutrition. In food industry sodium caseinate is used to improve the quality of products.

Agar

Agar is a gelatinous substance derived by boiling a polysaccharide in red algae, where it accumulates in the cell walls of agarophyte and serves as the primary structural support for the algae's cell walls.Agar exhibits hysteresis, melting at 85 °C and solidifying from 32-40 °C.Agar is used throughout the world to provide a solid surface containing medium for the growth of bacteria and fungi. Agar-Agar is used in dairy based products like yoghurts, ice- creams, mousses, chocolate milks, custard tarts, custards, etc. It is a cost effective stabilizer for dairy products where water retention is of importance. It can also be mixed with other colloids to improve their final texture.

Properties Suppliers
Amylose

Amylose is a linear polymer made up of D-glucose units.It is made up of alpha(1->4) bound glucose molecules.It is one of the two components of starch.Amylose is important in plant energy storage. It is less readily digested than amylopectin.It is also an important thickener, water binder, emulsion stabilizer, and gelling agent in both industrial and food industries.

Guar Gum

Guar is a cultivated crop known to be cultivated for ages in India and Pakistan. The main component is galactomannan. It is also known in Texas (USA), Malawi, South Africa and Mexico in small quantities. It has been traditionally an annual crop sown at the end of July and harvested in November. Guar grows best in arid and semi-arid areas. It needs a sandy soil and spaced out rainfall. Western India produces about 80% of the Word?s Guar, Pakistan produces about 15% and others 5%. The germ is completely enveloped by the two halves of the endosperm, and it is the endosperm that is the source of the gum. The tough seed skin or husk is of a fibrous nature, composed of compressed thin layers of cellulosic material. The gum is commercially extracted from the seeds essentially by a mechanical process of roasting, differential attrition, sieving and polishing. The seeds are broken and the germ is separated from the endosperm. Two halves of the endosperm are obtained from each seed and are known as dehusked Guar splits. Guar gum powder will be obtained from refining guar splits. This is pure natural and green plant gum. It is widely used in food additives, textile printing, oil drilling, tobacco and paper making, construction material, water treatment and other industries.

Docosanol

Docosanol is a saturated fatty alcohol used traditionally as an emollient, emulsifier, and thickener in cosmetics and as a nutritional supplement. It also approved as an antiviral agent for reducing the duration of cold sores caused by the herpes simplex virus. One of the most common side effects that has been reported from docosanol is headache. Headaches caused by the drug tend to be mild and can occur in any region of the head.

Corn Syrup

Corn syrup is a food syrup, which is made from the starch of maize and composed mainly of glucose. Corn syrup is used in foods to soften texture, add volume, prevent crystallization of sugar, and enhance flavor. Corn syrup is distinct from high-fructose corn syrup, created when corn syrup undergoes enzymatic processing that produces a sweeter compound containing higher levels of fructose.

Properties Suppliers
Gellan Gum

Gellan Gum is used primarily as a gelling agent, alternative to agar, in microbiological culture.

Properties Suppliers
Gum Karaya

Gum Karaya is a vegetable gum produced as an exudate by trees of the genus Sterculia. Chemically, gum karaya is an acid polysaccharide composed of the sugars galactose, rhamnose and galacturonic acid. It is used as a thickener and emulsifier in foods, as a laxative, and as a denture adhesive. It is also used to adulterate Gum Tragacanth due to their similar physical characteristics.

Properties Suppliers
Corn Starch

Corn starch is the starch derived from corn.It is ground from the white endosperm at the heart of a kernel of corn.It is a cereal starch having low Protein & Ash content.It is used in Pharmaceutical Industry as a dusting media for various type of coating as well as binder & filler for capsules & tables,used in textile industry to provide stiffness & to add weight to cloths,used for thickening sauces, gravies, puddings and pie fillings,for sizing as well as to increase the paper strength.

Properties Suppliers
Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide that is considered a dietary fiber. Glucomannan is a food additive used as an emulsifier and thickener. Products containing glucomannan, marketed under a variety of brand names, are also sold as nutritional supplements for constipation, obesity, high cholesterol, acne vulgaris and type 2 diabetes. Though there is some clinical support for potential health benefits, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved any product containing glucomannan for the treatment of these medical conditions.
