Goma de gelana, also known as gelan gum, is a vegan-friendly ingredient derived from the cell walls of certain types of red algae. This hydrocolloid has excellent gelling and stabilizing properties, making it a popular choice in the food industry for creating smooth textures and enhancing mouthfeel. Goma de gelana can be used in a variety of applications, including dairy-free yogurts, fruit toppings, and even plant-based cheeses. Its versatility and ability to withstand high temperatures without breaking down make it an ideal ingredient for both hot and cold preparations.
