Gels & Gelling agents

Gelled products are common in many industries (agrifood, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, but also specialty industrial sectors such as lubricants and greases).

Gelling agents, such as xanthan, alginate, guar, pectin, carob, are sometimes also used as simple thickeners or viscosifiers.

Control the sensitivity of gels

The texture or stability of the finished product, the variability of batches of gelling agents or the influence of process parameters on the gelling or rheology of the product are important industrial issues, for which current methods present serious limitations.

Indeed, it is crucial to control both the formulation of the finished product, the manufacturing process and the final application to identify and understand the factors altering the gelling mechanism.
