In the food industry, hydrocolloids are used firstly to directly influence the structure and properties of a food product (thickening, stabilising and gelling). Secondly, they are used as technological processing aids, such as for dispensing ingredients.
Pharmaceutical & Natural Health
Both galactomannans as well as exudates are used in the pharmaceutical industry and the life sciences industry as active ingredients and excipients. Many of these products are described in monographs in pharmacopoeias.
Our products are standardised according to the methods of pharmacopoeias or are manufactured according to customer requirements; they are used mainly as active ingredients for controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, as excipients for formulating suppositories and as tablet disintegrants.
The range extends from native guar and guar derivatives to exudates and on to customer-specific specialities.
