CP Kelco has steadily broadened the effectiveness and range of hydrocolloid use since our founding nearly 90 years ago. Through ongoing experimentation and product development, CP Kelco has pioneered advancements in the manufacturing and application of pectin, gellan gum, xanthan gum, diutan gum and carrageenan. Our products improve existing foods, beverages and personal care products, and make new ones possible in markets all over the world.

Leveraging nearly a century of experience, we are always charting new paths to help our customers make their products better. Our products are derived from raw materials found in nature, including polysaccharides produced by microbial fermentation, extraction from land and sea plants and cellulose-based raw materials.
