KELTROL 521 is an 80-mesh food-grade xanthan gum suitable for use in food preparations and personal care applications. KELTROL 521 is a free-flowing powder, with low dusting characteristics, designed to hydrate more effectively than conventional food-grade xanthan products under typical plant mixing conditions.

  • Imparts high solution viscosity at low gum concentrations

  • Has pseudoplastic rheology profile (e.g., is shear thinning)

  • Exhibits little solution viscosity change over a wide temperature range

  • Compatible with and stable in solutions containing high salt concentrations

  • Soluble and stable in both acid and alkaline conditions

  • Exhibits synergistic increase in viscosity when used with guar and locust bean gum

  • Free-flowing; low dusting; has improved dispersibility over standard xanthan gum

  • Kosher and Halal approved

  • Provides excellent suspension for insoluble solids and oil droplets

  • Provides freeze-thaw stability

  • Exhibits low viscosity while processing (e.g., pumping)

  • Fully recovers viscosity after shearing

  • Reduces dust exposure, which minimizes industrial hygiene issues, slipping hazards, and improves general housekeeping
