Gellan Gum is a kind of extra cellular polysaccharide excreted by microorganism Pseudomonas elodea. It is a linear structure with a repeating unit of tetrasaccharide. As a multi-functional gellingsuspending and thickening agent, it can be used individually as well as jointly with other products.
Gellan gum is a water-soluble anionic polysaccharide produced by the bacterium Sphingomonas elodea (the current taxonomic classification). It was originally identified as “Pseudomonas elodea” based on the taxonomic classification at the time of discovery. The gellan-producing bacterium was discovered and isolated by the former Kelco Division of Merck & Company, Inc. in 1978 from the lily plant tissue from a natural pond in Pennsylvania, USA. It was initially identified as a substitute gelling agent at significantly lower use level to replace agar in solid culture media for the growth of various microorganisms Its initial commercial product with the trademark as “GELRITE” gellan gum, was subsequently identified as a suitable agar substitute as gelling agent in various clinical bacteriological media.
