Heat treatment of curdlan suspensions may produce two types of gels, depending on temperature. A thermo-reversible low-set gel is obtained when heated to 55°C–60°C and forms a weak, low-set gel upon cooling. A thermo-irreversible high-set gel requires heating up to 80°C or higher. The gel strength increases with heating temperature (gelation starts at 55°C) but stays constant between 60°C and 80°C. Further increase in temperature, up to 120°C, changes the molecular structure to a triple helix (melting temperatures above 140°C).
