Fast Market Research announces the availability of the new TechNavio report, "Global Hydrocolloid Market 2016-2020", on their comprehensive research portal


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2016 -- Hydrocolloids are a group of long chain polymers that are generally known for their property of forming viscous dispersions and gels when dispersed in water. These polymers are derived naturally from the exudates of trees or bushes, extracts of plants and seaweeds, flours from seeds or grains, and from the gummy slimes from fermentation processes. The presence of a large number of hydroxyl groups in hydrocolloids and in water increases the affinity of hydrocolloids to bind the water molecules and form hydrophilic compounds. They also produce a dispersion which exhibits the properties of a colloid, and is in an intermediate state between a true solution and a suspension. These two properties have led to these polymers being popularly known as hydrophilic colloids or hydrocolloids. Hydrocolloids have numerous applications in food products, such as thickening, gelling, emulsifying, stabilization, and coating. Hydrocolloids are an integral part of the global food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries among others. Companies worldwide are focusing their R&D efforts on technological innovations in order to expand the functionalities as well as applications of various types of hydrocolloids in several end-user industries
