CP Kelco

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, CP Kelco manufactures and markets specialty hydrocolloids, with global reach. Our goal is to be the preferred partner for providing solutions through the use of nature-based chemistry. CP Kelco is a creative and innovative leader in the production and manipulation of polysaccharides by microbial fermentation and extraction from plant, algal and cellulose-based raw materials.

Our products are derived from natural, renewable sources, and we strive to preserve nature’s functionality by minimizing chemical modification. Key product lines are Carrageenan, Gellan Gum, Pectin, Xanthan Gum and Carboxymethyl Cellulose, marketed under brand names including

CEKOL®​, GENU®​, KELTROL®​ and KELCOGEL®​. These products provide many benefits, all based on oil-in-water emulsion stability in the batter (finer texture and improved volume), better entrapment of leavening gases (improved volume) during batching and baking, and reduced coalescence of gas bubbles during baking (thus less tunneling).

CP Kelco draws on decades of experience of developing hydrocolloids for beverages, food, cosmetics, personal care, oral care, household cleaners, detergents, pharmaceutical, paper, oilfield drilling, mining – the application space is endless.

CP Kelco is a leader across a broad range of industries; providing innovative products and services to customers across the globe. What’s your next "What if…"?
