So, what is gommé gellane?

Gommé gellane, also known as gellan gum, is a versatile food ingredient derived from the fermentation of a specific bacterial strain. It is a highly effective thickening and gelling agent that can be used in a variety of food products, including beverages, sauces, and desserts. Unlike many other gums, gommé gellane is heat-stable and can withstand a wide range of pH levels, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers. Its unique properties also make it an ideal substitute for traditional gelling agents like gelatin, making it a popular choice for vegan and vegetarian food products.
