German term or phrase: Gelbildner
Der pulverförmige Füllstoff wird von einem Bindemittel zusammengehalten und knetbar gemacht.
Beispiele solcher hierfür brauchbarer Bindemittel sind pflanzliche und synthetische *Gelbildner*, wie Xanthan, Guar gum, Johannisbrot mehl, Traganth, gequollene Stärke, Phosphate oder Cellulosederivate, wie methylierte oder veretherte Cellulose, tierische, pflanzliche oder synthetische Eiweißstoffe, wie Getreidekleber, Gelatine und andere.

Es geht um eine Patentanmeldung für eine Masse, die um Medikamente geformt werden kann, damit Tiere die Medikamente aufnehmen und herunterschlucken.

Würde Gelbildner in diesem Zusammenhang mit "thickener" oder mit "gelling agent" übersetzt.

Vielen Dank.
