Molecular Gastronomy can be a daunting topic for even the most well versed and experienced chef. Luckily for all of the curious do-it-yourselfers out there, Molecule-R has created a line of products and tools that make all of the most wonderful properties of Kitchen Chemistry completely available to you in your own kitchen. Gellan Gum is an alternative gelatin, used commonly in molecular gastronomy because of its especially durable characteristics. The gelatins made with Gellan Gum are very resilient to high temperatures, meaning that they will hold their form no matter how creative your plating technique happens to be. Gellan Gum gels can also be recognized by their firm texture, a characteristic that lends itself to creating clean lines and complex molds. Besides being popular in molecular gastronomy, it should also be noted that Gellan Gum is produced during the process of fermentation, without animal byproducts, making it accessible to vegans.
