Develop beverages with rich foams and froth for memorable drinking experiences

Your consumers want indulgent, lasting foam in their soft drinks, beers and slushies—without chemical-sounding ingredients on the labels. You can replace often-costly propylene glycol alginates (PGAs) or hydrocolloids with naturally sourced FOAMATION™ foaming agents and achieve superior stability—the key to thick, rich foam.  

Know your Y’s and Q’s 

Two FOAMATION foaming agents and blends are currently available to meet your formulation needs:

  1. FOAMATION Y foaming agent is made from yucca extract from the Mohave yucca plant.  It is ideal for use in improving mouthfeel in frozen carbonated beverages.
  2. FOAMATION Q foaming agent is made from quillaja extract from the Chilean soapbark tree.  It is perfect to add foam and froth in a variety of foods and beverages.

Benefits of FOAMATION foaming agents:

  • Create fun new beverage experiences with long-lasting thick foams and froths
  • Save money by increasing the overrun (air entrapment) of your frozen carbonated beverage or ice cream
  • Replace often-costly chemical-sounding stabilizers such as propylene glycol alginates (PGAs) or gelatin
  • Consistent, sustainable and reliable supply of high-quality foaming ingredients
  • Deliver a good story to your consumers by using sustainable, naturally sourced foaming ingredients
  • Rich, thick foam that will improve the look and appeal of your favorite favorite frozen coffee beverage, and the frothy lacing of your beer products
  • In frozen carbonated beverages and ice cream, reduce calories  and cost by increasing overrun


The FOAMATION trademark is owned by Desert King International.
