Why You’ll Love It

Xanthan Gum is a plant-based thickening and stabilizing agent. It is named for the bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris, which plays a crucial role in this description. Technically speaking, xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, which is just a fancy way to say "a string of multiple sugars." To create xanthan gum, the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium is allowed to ferment on a sugar. The result is a gel that is then dried and milled to create the powder substance. Xanthan gum has a number of powerful properties. First, it works as an emulsifier, encouraging liquids that normally don't like one another to mix together. Second, it works as thickener, increasing the viscosity of liquids and batters. Third, it can create a creamy texture. In the world of gluten-free baking, xanthan gum plays the crucial role of imitating gluten. In baking, gluten is what makes dough "doughy." It gives the dough elasticity, as well as viscosity.

Great for baking!

Great quality xanthan gum

Great Thickener

I used to make thickening with water and flour, but since finding this Xanthan Gum I use this instead. It was better from the first use. I only needed to use a little to thicken my gravy and it didn't clump up or leave a weird flavor at all.

- Barry Kailen

This is great if you want a natural way to have a thickened food.

I love how this makes all of the salad dressings I make taste amazing. I used it as well in my ice cream I made once, and it was amazing. This is great if you want a natural way to have a thickened food.

- Heidi Hubbard

Super impressed with this product!

I'm trying to avoid using cornstarch or flour to make my mushroom gravy. I added one teaspoon to 2 cups of water on medium heat until the ingredients were simmering and well mixed. It thickened more in the serving dish and became a perfect gravy. I am switching to this.
